    Text Only Toolbars - resolved

    Hello, I want to mimic a menu on my window using a toolbar, the main problem I'm having is the size issues. Whenever I create a toolbar it seems to always leave space for a bitmap, even if I don't specify a bitmap. I'm using some modified code I got from www.foosyerdoos.fsnet.co.uk just for testing purposes. Please could somebody look at this code and tell me why there is a big gap between the top of the button and the text?


    Code:
    #pragma comment(lib,"comctl32.lib")
    
    #define WIN32_LEAN_AND_MEAN
    #include <windows.h>
    #include <commctrl.h>
    
    HINSTANCE appInst;         
    HWND      hwndTool;
    
    #define WINWIDTH  300
    #define WINHEIGHT 300
    
    
    
    LRESULT CALLBACK WndProc(HWND hwnd,UINT Message,WPARAM wParam,LPARAM lParam)

    	return Msg.wParam;
    }
    I have read many pages at msdn relating to toolbars and have not yet found a solution to my problem. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    ps. sorry for the long code, I posted the whole thing because I wanted it to be as hassle free as possible to understand my problem.

    You can use the TB_SETBITMAPSIZE message:
    Code:
    SendMessage(hwndTool, TB_SETBITMAPSIZE, 1, 1);
    Also, since you're not setting the iBitmap member, make sure you zero out the TBBUTTON stuctures before use to avoid passing random values for iBitmap:
    Code:
    TBBUTTON             tbb[5] = { 0 };
    I found the TB_SETBITMAPSIZE message by scanning the list of messages available for the toolbar control. I also found that you can achieve the same result by setting the iBitmap member to I_IMAGENONE and giving the toolbar the TBSTYLE_LIST style, but I_IMAGENONE only works on 2000/ME/XP.

    Posting compilable code made it easy to copy and poste the code to try out ideas.

    Excellent, Thank you very much.

    I did see the I_IMAGENONE flag on msdn, but I was hoping there was a way that worked on 98 too.

    once again, Thank you.
