Delphi 3, the beta version is available from your nearest borland  representitive, has support for the Coolbars and menus with  bitmaps in like office 97 has. I have not seen this myself but  that is the word that is going around.

You can have a look at the delphi superpage at http://sunsite.icm.edu.pl/delphi/ if you need any components in the public domain. If it exists you should be able to find it there.

The super page does not contain anything like this that I could find. I doubt anyone would go to the trouble of writing these components if they come free with the next version of delphi !

 Many many components exist to give the Win 97 look, however ALL the ones that I have looked at are rubbish. I recomend writing your own, or waiting for Delphi 3.0.

I use a component OCX to make a menu like office 97, this component is a class called TActionBar.

Exist to a VCL, called TMagicMenu of Compani Light Lib, this component insert a bitmap in a menu item and have other cool features.

This VCL can download in the Nevrona Disaign Home page, called Magic Menu, but not have the same funcionality of office 97.
