Hello, I would like to creat a tool that appears as a button on a tool bar for VS 2008, Do I create a 1 form with a button and or a Tool Bar and second form with my application? Next, I know how to add controlls to the tool box, how do I get them in tool Bar?

Thanks

To add tools click Tools, Customize, then New. Then you can look on MSDN for the setup.

Thanks,  I did a bit of hunting and found      http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/esk3eey8.aspx

After I created an Add In and modified the Connect.cs , Exec Method to display my window when my tool bar button is pushed and voila!  Worked like a charm.
