CCustomizableToolBar

CCustomizableToolBar - A toolbar that can be customized.
This class is the most simple implementation of a customizable toolbar using MFC.
You can just replace the existing reference of CToolbar to CCustomizableToolBar and your application has a customizable toolbar!
As an extra feature I also enabled this class for hot button support (like Internet Explorer).

Usage:
Create the toolbar just a normal:

if (!m_wndToolBar.CreateEx(this, TBSTYLE_FLAT, WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE | CBRS_TOP
 CBRS_GRIPPER | CBRS_TOOLTIPS | CBRS_FLYBY | CBRS_SIZE_DYNAMIC) ||
!m_wndToolBar.LoadToolBar(IDR_MAINFRAME))
{
  TRACE0("Failed to create toolbar\n");
  return -1;   // fail to create
}

Enable hot button support:

SetImages(UINT nResourceNormal, UINT nResourceHot, UINT nResourceDisabled , BOOL bLargeImages)

where:
nResourceNormal: resource id for normal state
nResourceHot: resource id for hot state (mouse over)
nResourceDisabled: resource id for disabled state
bLargeImages: TRUE = the images are for large buttons, FALSE = the images are for small buttons,

so the code will look something like this:

m_wndToolBar.SetImages(IDB_COLD_SMALL, IDB_HOT_SMALL, IDB_DISABLED_SMALL, FALSE);
m_wndToolBar.SetImages(IDB_COLD_LARGE, IDB_HOT_LARGE, IDB_DISABLED_LARGE, TRUE);
