I was looking through the forum, and I saw this code posted by Sam quite a while ago for Toolbars. In his version, it allowed you to use bitmaps or icons, depending on what you had on hand

I decided to split the code into two separate files, one for bitmaps and one for icons. You can load buttons one at a time, which means you don't need to create one large bitmap for the taskbar

I noticed that if you use bitmaps, they have to be 8-bit. If you use icons, they can be 32-bit, which makes for a more pleasing look. Currently, only the 'Exit' button has the code to make it work

One thing - I couldn't figure out how to add Tooltips for each of the buttons. Maybe someone will put me straight. Just put all the files into one folder to compile
