Nightmare,

    There are two parts to your question. Customizing the background to your needs isn't all that hard. All you need to do is override the OnEraseBknd-function. To do so, use the ClassWizard (tm), select the toolbar and doubleclick the WM_ERASEBKGND message. The OnEraseBknd-fxn provides you with the necessary CDC to do all your drawing.

    I don't know how to change the button shape, though. I'm not sure if it is possible at all. All I can give you is a general outline of what you need to do. There are two steps involved. First, you need to retrieve either a CWnd* or a HWND for each button on the toolbar. Once you have that, call the SetWindowRgn to specify the buttons' shapes.
