Pass the SetBuddyControl method a MapControl, PageLayoutControl, SceneControl, GlobeControl or object implementing IToolbarBuddy. To clear the Buddy set the property to Nothing.

The ToolbarControl is passed as the hook parameter to the ICommand::OnCreate method of each item's command on the ToolbarControl. Each command will typically check the type of Buddy that has been set before becoming enabled. For example, a 'map zoom in' tool will only become enabled if the Buddy is a control that has a Map object ie. a MapControl or PageLayoutControl.
