I am trying to make a pretty bmp for my MS Office commandbar button. The command bar is being added by an Outlook 2003 add-in .dll. I am making the .dll in VB6 as a COM Add-in.
I have no idea why a picture added to a commandbar must be so difficult. In any case I made my own little 16x16 and cut and copied the code from here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/288771
I even used the same color.
On my computer and my work computer this red color is made transparent, then wouldn't you believe it i gave it to someelse and the dam transparency does not work.
It turns out that if I change MS Office language to German that the transparency does not work.....how can a language change effect this.
I found that Microsoft Germany has the same code in german
Your browser might automatically at first go to an english version. But the code is the same
Does anyone have any help?
I have added the part of the .dll that adds the commandbar and picture to the bar.
