Well, actually! Using a picture box for the toolbar and another for
all the buttons (16x16, 23x22 or 32x32 as needed) in the various
states you will use in your app is considerably faster.
A company called Inlog has a 'coded toolbar and believe me its
actually easier to use and faster than the toolbar in the 32-bit
windows common controls. My toolbars always blinked until I began
using the Inlog control and as long as I stay within the standard
button sizes listed above you can make any type of button, limited
only by your imagination and graphical ability.
