Please take a look at this screenshot.

I want to know how I can make menus for my own programs that look like the ones on the left hand side of this screen shot.

For the points: a vivid tutorial or sample code.

I am getting 'Error runtime 0' with that OCX. It looks like a great control, and I would like to be able to get it to work.

also, when I downloaded the source, and ran it in VB's IDE, I get" Run-time error '440': Method 'Show' of object 'frmTestExplorerBar' failed.

This is after I downloaded and registered a required OCX, vbalIl6.ocx

Any thoughts?

That control also requires
ssubtmr6.dll

Did you download and install that as well?
