    Rebar(Coolbar) Alternative for win 95

    For Win95 non-MFC, I would like the look of the Rebar (Coolbar) control but I don't need it to resize/move. Can this be done in a win95 environment?

    Is it wise/possible to use multiple toolbars to achieve this look?

    Thanks

    yes most likely.. what is "Coolbar" though.. but I doubt it's impossible to recreate with your requirements

    A coolbar is like a multiple toolbar. It contains child controls not just buttons. It is one of the few transparent controls.

    It should work on Win95, but I have never tried, if you have IE 4 or greater installed (for the InitCommonControlsEx() to work).
