This seems like a quetsion that would have been answered before... but I cannot find an answer on here or elsewhere.  I simply need to know how to create a true-color toolbar using Win32 API only... no MFC.  (24 bit color + alpha channel).  If the alpha channel complicates things too much, I can get by with using just 24 bit BMP...

I have true color BMP toolbar images, but I understand there are limitations in the CreateToolbarEx function that will not load the true color bmp correctly. (I get black buttons on teh toolbar).

Can someone please provide me with a code sample of how I can build a true color toolbar using only Win32 API?

Thanks,
Jeff

I know you wrote "no MFC", but maybe you can extract the basics from this sample: http://www.codeproject.com/docking/truecolortoolbar.asp

Thanks for your replry... That looks a little more involved than I need it to be... I was hoping to find a simple API example.
