Default Toolbars

Does anyone know how to create toolbars like the ones in VS .NET or Office?

I know there are controls out there, but they cost money, and I like the satisfaction of writing it my self.

Any one know how to?

Thanks in advance,

It is a nasty job, this is why you have to pay money for commercial components... Almost all good components are written in C++, because it involves window subclassing. That does not mean that you should not try to do it yourself, but be prepared to a lot of work. You can start creating your own ocx control using the VB6 coolbar object, that it is not 'cool' at all.
