Hi!

I'm developing a IE Toolbar and I try to add some icons to it. Everything works fine if the graphic is 16x16 px, but if I set the Imagelist to custom format (80 width x 16 height) then a 1 px black 'shadow' is displayed under my graphic. I use grey as MaskColor.
Any idea where this shadow comes from?

1) Did you set custom property and size of imagelist before add any graphic?
2) Are you sure that images are exactly 80x16px?
3) could you check it with a graphic program?
4) did you try setting , in example, 79x15px and see what happens?

1) yes
2) yes
3) Photoshop says: 80x16
4) this shrinks the pic by 1 px. nothing more.

I created a small sample that displays it a little bit more in detail:

Please, don't accept any question that not meet your requirements, even with C grade. It would be better if you ask for delete it or refund points.
C grade is no good for you, no good for me.
