Hi support,

In my appliaction, I allow user to hide/show the toolbar and menubar by specific action.
And I keep a control filled in mainform.
After toolbar hiding, I can not show them again. they must be covered by the control filled in mainform.

Could you give me some advices?
I think when user actived the toolbar, you should call BringToFront() at your code. It is my suggestion.

Best regards,

I said in preview post, I can not reproduce it.:(
Is it possibile to expose the handle of toolbar? In that case, I can handle it by WIN32 API at least.
Wait for your reply.

Dockable toolbars are "lightweight" controls so there is no handle. Perhaps some of your controls that are inside the dock areas are covering up the dock areas? The dock areas (BarDockArea) are what you would want to check out since that is what the menu/toolbars dock in.

Hi support,

Thanks for you reply. After I bring BarDockArea to front, it works.
