I should have asked this in conjunction with the Toolbar/Coolbar question...anyway...

Is there a way to emulate the coolbar/menubar available in most MS applications (IE,Word,VB), wherein there is a menu contained within the coolbar, and which highlights as you pass the cursor over the menu options. Or does this need to be done by hand.

I don't think there is a "supported" way of doing this in VB (yet).  Menus still are not implemented as separate vb objects.  But rather, they are done "for you" in the sense that you have to fill out that stupid menu editor wizard thingy.  

When the hell is Microsoft going to get around to fixing that anyway!?

There might be a third party menu control available, but I am not aware of any.  In that case, you *could* simply drop it onto the coolbar.
