How can I create the same effect / appearence as we can see in Internet Explore's bar using Coolbar Control, I mean, flat buttons with or without icons, drop-down buttons, separators, etc ?

I have already tried the Toolbar Control and some examples from Vbaccelerator, but I had some problems with them.

In case You have a "simple" sample project, please send it to me.

Thanks in advance for any help

the toolbar will work for you quite well:
theres a short tutorial to get you started.  to make it flat, go to the properties window of the toolbar and click custom, at the bottom change its style to flat.  the tutorial points out most of the other questions you were concerned with but if they dont feel free to ask.

what i don't like about vbaccelerators toolbar that you have to have their huge DLL on your machine. That kind of sucks.
