Use the cool bar control.

Cool bar is in this set of controls:
Microsoft Windows Common Controls-3

Make a normal tool bar a "child" of each cool bar pane under custom properties of the cool bar to give it functionality.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Place a regular tool bar in the cool bar. Goto custom properties of the cool bar. There on one of the tabs you will see "child". If a toolbar is in the cool bar, you can choose that as a child. You probably also want to set the style to "flat" for the tool bar and you need as many toolbars in your cool bar as you want panes.

The "child" property is on the "Bands" tab.

Use the following settings for normal toolbar:
"Appearance" 0-ccFlat
"Style" 1-tbrFlat
"BorderStyle" 0-ccNone (Default)
