Disabling the gray masking effect on a ToolBarButton

P: n/a
I have a ToolBarButton that when I set it to disabled (button.Enabled =
false;) causes a really ugly gray masking effect to take place. This is
normal and the intended way of the button, but I would like to clean it up.
Instead of using the gray mask, I want to use my own grayscaled high quality
image. I thought by simply setting button.ImageIndex = new_num; (where
new_num is the index of the grayscale image) I could do this. But alas, that
didn't work.

So, just HOW do I remove the masking effect on the toolbar buttons when they
are disabled? I have been doing some reading in which I might be able to use
the TBCDRF_NOETCHEDEFFECT flag as part of a NM_CUSTOMDRAW, but I am not sure
just how that would be implemented.

Has anyone else had to deal with this? How did you solve it?
