If you are using the Toolbar from the Microsoft Windows Common Controls ocx, you can set the Style property to 1 (tbrFlat). If you are using some other Toolbar, let us know which one.

Drag one on your form, right click on it and choose 'Properties'.
You can bind it to an imagelist control (from the same ocx) and assign a picture to each button.

Step by Step then:
1- Add the Microsoft Windows Common Controls 5.0 (for VB5) or 6.0 (for VB6)

2- Double Click the ToolBar Icon on the ToolBox, it will add a toolbar on the top of your form;

3- insert a Image list control by the same way above.

4- ask the image list properties,click on images and on insertpicture button to choose your picture. you can add more pics;

5- bind the  toolbar to your imagelist selecting the toolbar properties and in the imagelist field select your imagelist;

6- add the buttons clicking on the buttons tab, Insert button; the KEY field is your identifier for this button. I use btn1, btn2 as values. To choose what picture will be on this button, on the image field, put the index of the pic of the image list;

7- to know what button was pressed:

Private Sub toolbar1_ButtonClick(ByVal Button As Button)
Select Case Button.Key
   Case Is = "btn1" :  MsgBox "You pressed btn1"
   Case Is = "btn2"  :  MsgBox "You pressed btn2"
End Select
End Sub

I think thats what you need....
