When I put a Toolbar component in a form usin Delphi7 Enterprise Edition, the toolbar is
shown in transparent style, but I need it not transparent. I set the transparent property to
false but it doesn't work.

How do I get a not transparent toolbar ??

Thanks a lot for your help

Try setting the color
ToolBar1.Color := clBtnFace;
when you change the background color of a form, delphi automatically changes toolbar's colors to match,

--> when you change the background color of a form, delphi automatically changes toolbar's colors to match
not right. It happens only if TToolbar.parentcolor is true although TToolbar.Transparent is false...

So take care that ParentColor is False....

I tried setting the toolbar color and transparent property to false but the toolbar is shown in transparent mode allways.

This is a project developed with Delphi 6 and now I'm opening the project with Delphi7.
It does matter ??

Help please

I was checking the problem and the toolbar is allways shown in transparent style
only when I add the XPManifest component to the Porject Main form.

Help please...
