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 Is Threat Intelligence?

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.

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)
