 OK I have a standard toolbar control on a form (VB6 SP3 EE).  I want to set up a button similar to the back button on the IE, a button with a down arrow that you can click to get multiple options in a menu under the button.
  There is a style called MenuButton for a button that will add the arrow, but from here how do I create the menu items for the button and how do I put icons on the drop down menu.
  Thanks

go to the toolbar's property page and click custom
click the Buttons tab and choose insert button
Give it a caption and makes its style tbrDropDown
Now the bottom part of the form is no longer greyed
choose insertbutton menu
now you can add as many menu items to that button as you want by continuously clicking insertbutton menu and adding new menu items with captions

i dont know how to get images in there though....sorry

Boy I must be stupid.  I didn't even see the bottom half of the screen talking about the Button Menus.  I will give you the points, but I want to leave the question open so that somebody else can get another 100 points for telling me how add pictures to the menu.
