I would like to have a toolbar menu across the top of my main MDI form.  I already have a drop down menu created with the menu editor.  I haven't see any examples of how to create  toolbar menu.  What I mean by toolbar menu is a menu across the top of the screen that contains buttons with icons for each task instead of text.

You can add a toolbar using the toolbar ocx, It is located in the components section.

Click projects, then click components, then locate Microsoft Windows Common Controls and check it. You might have various versions so click the most updated version.  Which in my case is Microsoft Windows Common Controls 6.0(SP6).

Then look on the visual basic tool bar you will see various components loaded..scroll over each one until it says toolbar as tooltip message. In my case the toolbar comonent is located below the OLE icon on the visual basic toolbar menu.

Place the toolbar ocx onto your form.

The next step is just to right click on the toolbar to bring up its properties.

You can fool around and see what each option does, you can also add images as well.

Good Luck :)
