Toolbar Troubles

I need help!

I've created a toolbar for my application.  It looks good. All the images are as they should be.  It functions Great.  It hides and shows.

Here's the problem.  When the form is resized to be smaller than its content the scrollbars appear (that's normal I know).  But when you scroll down, my toolbar goes byebye.  I want it to be always on top.

I have had such trouble with this scrollbar issue.  I want to master them so I can add a statusbar as well, but I won't even go into all that.  I've tryed adding a panel and placing the content within it, with no success.

I need real answers.

Thank you

What version of Delphi ru using? Using D3 and the TToolbar/TImageList I have not encountered this problem..

I have encountered a couple of others..
1) If you place a TLabel inside your toolbar, it will change the bar's ButtonHeight to the label height.. :/ Setting ButtonHeight at runtime solves this.
2) If your imagelist is on another form (I generally put mine in a DataModule) the bitmaps within occasionally go black! Restarting Delphi WITHOUT saving fixes it.

The above is only useful if you have nothing else on the form ;>

This should do it :-

Set the Form's VertScrollBar.Visible property to False

Set your Toolbar's Align to Top (should be by default)

Add a TScrollBox to the form & give it Align Client. (It also looks better if the BorderStyle is bsNone IMHO).

Place your controls within the TScrollBox.

The scrollbox will scroll as the form's resized but the toolbar will always sit above it at the top.
