Viewing the Control Toolbox in Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 MFC

Posted by Rey Dacoco in

Unlike other application and development tools, Visual C++ does not permit viewing some of its Integrated Development Environment (IDE) components such as dialog box or control toolbox using the View menu. Unintentionally closing an IDE component could result to total disarray. To show one of its important components, the Control toolbox, use any of the following methods:

Method 1:

1. Right-click an empty pane in the Microsoft Visual C++ toolbar. A pop-up menu containing several options will be displayed>Select Controls option.

Note: The Controls option only appears on the pop-up menu if your dialog-based application is shown on the screen. If you dialog-box is hidden, click the resource tab on the right pane of you Visual C++ IDE> Expand the Dialog tree control item>Double-click IDD_Nameofyouproject_DIALOG.


Method 2:

1. Click on the tools menu>Customize>Click the toolbars tab.

2. Check Controls from the toolbars list box>Click the close button.
