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?
