Here is an interesting challenge: implement the behavior of this collapsible toolbar. I'm wondering if this can be done by reusing the shell's toolbar control or if the whole thing needs a custom implementation. I will investigate an post back my findings.
After a bit of a rush trying to amend my own lack of testing before publishing new product releases (I should know better at 42...) I will also start looking at what it takes to implement the "Consumer Templates-less" OLE DB library for Windows CE (and Win32, why not?).
