 Child Windows is an MDI Application


        I have a created a new MFC MDI Application project using the
AppWizard, and I wish to create a Tool Window similar to the one used
in Adobe Photoshop, Visual Studio Resource Editor, etc.  I have
modified the MainFrame's WS_CHILDREN bit to TRUE and have modified the
other MDIChild window's to CLIP_SIBLINGS.  My ToolWindow class is set
to WS_CHILD.  The problem which I am experiencing is that when my Tool
Window is created, the client area is displayed on an MDI Child
window, but the title bar is not being displayed and I cannot interact
with the Tool Window.  If I do not set the WS_CHILD bit to TRUE, the
Tool Window is created like it should, except that it can be moved
anywhere on the desktop.  I wish to have my tool window only be
displayed within the client area of my main frame.  Any help would be
greatly appreciated, thank you.
