Icons of menus

What is the easiest way to get icons on menus? I want to add this feature to a complicated app, so it needs to be relatively simple. I don't want to pay for a control either! I would prefer the MS Office style. Any ideas? If you have code, please e-mail me at d.taylor@clear.net.nz

Thanks everyone. I am evaluating each of these options. The control suggested by 'Ruchi' looks very good. The others are either not easy enoguh to implement in many forms or do not look right. Marines example distorted the pictures. Thanks once again. I will try and get back to this soon.

What does disorted means ? I haven't actually tried it under NT but it looked well on 98/95. That control requires a dll. Which is huge.

I happened upon this site today and it reminded me of this question.  There is a sample there called Menu Icons that looks really good (at least when I tried it out)

Plus I threw in some icons you can download:

also it is much less bulky than the vbaccelerator example, though it too is a very good one.

I need some code that will allow me to use an image list, have as little code as possible on the form, and I don't want to have to assign blank images for the menu items that will not have pictures. THis is why I liked the control, but it's still not ideal. There must be more code out there somewhere?
