I am using the ImageList1 Control to specify images by selection.  I have selected .ico, .gif, and .jpg to see which type would display on the Cool Bar.  

In the Cool Bar properties I have specified the ImageList1 for the images and still no images display.

When I use a bit map instead of an ImageList1 no individual buttons are accesible for index execution....?

Simply, using the ImageList control with the CoolBar control either one bitmap from a c program is displayed as one or from multiple images in ImageList no images display.

I need individual images to get selected so they operate as icons....

Code in another computer not easily transportable right now.  will post as necessary.  All the assignment is in the Property boxes of the ImageList and CoolBar.

Still no images, keep this open, I will continue to research this regarding BOTH
TOOLBAR and COOLBAR.  I copied the MDI TOOLBAR, the buttons worked
but the ImageList did not work.

ImageList - this is the same problem as in other 2 questions, isn't it?
You have VB5 and VB6 on the same machine?

Yes, but I found that even the Tool Bar only works in the MDI parent and not any child form.

The images in the imagelist all have an index (and if you assign, a key).  The coolbar has a property for each bar that refers to the index (of key) of the desired image.

At design time, on the coolbar property pages, on the General tab, the Imagelist box should be set to the name of the imagelist.  On the Bands tab, the Image box should be set to the index (or key) of the desired image.

The image will not be displayed at design time.
