    How do I add buttons near the menu area.

    Hi,

    I'm trying to create a set of buttons that appear underneath the menu area.

    I'm using Visual Studios to create these buttons, i don't know how they can go underneath the menu area. I've tried to look for examples online on how to code it, but I can't seem to find a way how.

    Here's an example if what I mean:

    Can someone tell me how to do that?

    In WIN32 they are termed 'Rebar' controls, search MSDN (or here) for examples. In MFC ect 'Toolbar' ctrls.

    They are MUCH easier to work with in MFC, but MFC does not allow you to use 32 bit images on the buttons without a hack.
