Anyone know of a *FREE* 3rd party toolbar control that will let me use hover effects like Microsoft uses? I did find this one http://www.codeproject.com/vb/net/ToolBarEx.asp but it must have been written in VB.NET 2003 since I can't open it's project and can't get the ToolBarEx.DLL to work in my VB.NET 2002

I like the Divil controls but my application will be sold so though it is a rather cheap control to purchase what are the odds that I would get caught using their product against their terms of the free software license?

To get around divil  I would use cuttingedge.

It is the basic code for making controls like divil and it is free.

I read over the info for Cutting Edge and it works with text menu's not the icon menu's and it was written in VB.NET 2003 and I only have VB.NET 2002 so it won't work for me. The same is true for the code I found at Codeproject.com

You want to upgrade to 1.1, I think that will enable you to use the controls.

Oops.... My VB.NET says it has 1.0 installed but checking under Add/Remove programs it shows it as 1.1 unless there is something else VB.NET requires to acknowledge that 1.1 was installed I don't know.
