Try this one from CodeProject.
    http://www.codeproject.com/wtl/toolband.asp

It will totally work with VS.NET, but it might need some tweaking.  If you can't get it to work, post the problems and I'll help you get it worked out.

Hope that helps,

I can't get to install that Atl object wizard ...  There is no directory
 C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\Common\MSDev98\Template\ATL

closest i could find is

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\Vc7\VCWizards

but still it is not showing up in new projects ??? i also registered that dll too

I would forget about that wizard.  Just download the sample project and change it to meet your needs.  I mean, all you asked for is a sample.  You don't need the wizard to compile the sample.

If you can get it to compile, then hurray:  you've got your sample.
If you can't get it to compile, post the errors you get, and we'll keep going.

I got some of those errors, but not as many as you did.  However, all my errors were on line 56, and so are yours.  So, here is what I did to fix it.

Change Line 56 from this:
      COM_INTERFACE_ENTRY(IInputObject)

To this:
      COM_INTERFACE_ENTRY_IID(IID_IInputObject, IInputObject)

Good luck,
Dex*

No problem.  I'm glad you got it working.

It seems in the new compiler, they rearranged the header files so that the GUID is separate from the interface, and so the compiler couldn't associate it the IID with the interface.  The change we made explicitly says what the IID for the interface is, so the compiler had no problems.  If you look at the code, he does a similiar thing for at least one other interface.

Hope that helps,
