Hi vienna,

You're probably doing it right, but missing one step.

You don't actually draw the toolbar control inside a coolbar band. You draw the toolbar control inside the coolbar control. At this point it won't look right, it may even span bands.

The step your probably missing is associating telling the coolbar control that the toolbar control is associated with a particular band. To do this, right-click on the coolbar and then click properties. Select the Band tab. See where the Child drop down is? If you click the down-arrow for the drop down box, you'll see your toolbar. Select it, then click OK.

You'll now see your toolbar inside band 1. If that wasn't the band you wanted it in, you can go back to the coolbar, change band 1's child property to none, select another band, then set it's child property to your toolbar.

Hope this works for you.
