1. Take a look at the article "IE4 Style Menu (Rebar Menu)" by Janusz Jasinski on CodeGuru site (http://codeguru.developer.com).

2. Try this:
STEP 1 -> Create two bitmaps, one for normal appearence and second when the mouse is over the toolbar button. Let us say you name them as IDB_NORMAL and IDB_HILITE respectively.
STEP 2 -> In CMainFrame::OnCreate() add the following code before return statement.

CImageList imageList;
 CBitmap  bitmap;
 
 // Create and set the normal toolbar image list.
 bitmap.LoadBitmap(IDB_NORMAL);
 imageList.Create(21, 20, ILC_COLORDDB|ILC_MASK, 13, 1);
 imageList.Add(&bitmap, RGB(255,0,255));
 m_wndToolBar.SendMessage(TB_SETIMAGELIST, 0, (LPARAM)imageList.m_hImageList);
 imageList.Detach();
 bitmap.Detach();

 // Create and set the hot toolbar image list.
 bitmap.LoadBitmap(IDB_HILITE);
 imageList.Create(21, 20, ILC_COLORDDB|ILC_MASK, 13, 1);
 imageList.Add(&bitmap, RGB(255,0,255));
 m_wndToolBar.SendMessage(TB_SETHOTIMAGELIST, 0, (LPARAM)imageList.m_hImageList);
 imageList.Detach();
 bitmap.Detach();
 
See what happens? You can use this logic to solve the problem.

All the best.
