ToolStrip Render in VB2005 (bug?)

P: n/a

I'm migrating/rewriting one of my VB6 apps to VB2005.
In the process, I'm trying to avoid using third party activex controls
used in the VB6 project.

One of the third party controls in the VB6 app was for menu/toolbars.
This control had an option to render the toolbar in an Office 2003
style which is nothing more than a top to bottom gradient.

When a new ToolStrip is added to a form, the default appearance of the
Toolstrip is that of Office 2003 using 16 x 16 icons.

1) If larger than 16 x 16 icons are used, the ToolStrip looses it's
gradient appearance. The strip becomes essentially flat with top and
bottom radii. In VB2005 IDE, Office 2003 and the third party control,
the gradient is maintained regardless of the icon size.

2) If I select system render property, I get a proper system style
ToolStrip, but am unable to go back to the default style without
deleting that ToolStrip and starting over with a new ToolStrip.

3) When selecting "Set Image" for the menu or ToolStrip items, there
is no .ico option (invalid file type), so I'm having to use .png
files. In the VB6 app I was using multi-icon files.
Are these bugs or am I overlooking something?

Thanks,

Gene
