Plz, clarify your question - what do you want (start point - end point)

Perhaps he doesn't have any use of a Toolbar/Listview and feels like it's a waste of a 1Mb ocx to get only Imagelists. If so, you (bubbles) can find a replacement for the imagelist at, using some simple API's.

Now that I think of it, you can assign your icons by code if you want. Try placing the icons in a resource file then load them and assign them as you (bubbles) add items to your list view. You'll likely need a small (16x16 generally) and a large (32x32 generally) copy of each.
