How can I create "flat" Toolbar as in MSOffice97? In commctrl.h there is a TBSTYLE_FLAT constant but it is not work if applied as Toolbar style.
1 Solution

  Assuming that you have a CToolBar member (in your Mainframe
or wherever you are planning to host your toolbar), the following
lines of code will change your toolbar flat.

DWORD dwStyle = m_wndMyToolBar.GetStyle ();
SetWindowLong (m_wndMyToolBar.GetSafeHwnd(), GWL_STYLE,
               dwStyle | TBSTYLE_FLAT);

Alternatively, you could also do:

 m_wndMyToolBar.ModifyStyle (0, TBSTYLE_FLAT);
Note that this style cannot be applied by CToolBar's SetBarStyle
