Hello All

I am wondering if anyone is aware of how too change the interface of the toolbar so that the icons activate ( or light up, I think these are called Cool Bars) as you move the mouse over the icons of the toolbar, similar to the Internet Explorer Interface.

I look forward to a reply.

Best Regards

If you haven't already done so, look through http://www.codeguru.com/ for one.  I am sure there is something that will fit your needs there.  Look here first: http://www.codeguru.com/toolbar/index.shtml

Paul DiLascia covers this in its C++ Q&A column of the october 1998 issue of MSJ (http://www.microsoft.com/msj)
In short you have to use the TB_SETHOTIMAGELIST, TB_SETDISABLEDIMAGELIST and TB_SETIMAGELIST to set the different image lists to be used in the different context.
To enable the "hot" look, the toolbar needs to have the TBSTYLE_FLAT style.
