Modern toolbar

I have a VC 4.1 application with a traditional looking toolbar with raised buttons; it's created via CToolBar and  LoadToolBar.

I'm moving to VC6 and would like to convert this app to the modern look with buttons that raise only when you hover over them (like the ones in Visual Studio itself).  What is the easiest way to convert?

look at CreateEx() member function of the CToolBar class, you can determine in the style argument of this function to use the flat button style.

Actually, what I wanted was pretty modest by comparison to what the answer provided.  

But by looking at the documentation of the replacement toolbar class that the answer pointed to, I learned the parameters to use on my existing CToolBar to get the effect I want.
