One feature I've been trying to achieve since I first discovered you could write API declares in VB3 (oops, showing my age here...) is a drop-down tool window you can show in response to a button or tool bar button click. These windows have been increasing in number in the Office series of tools and they are a really nice addition to a user interface.
This sample provides a neat class which allows you to convert any PictureBox or Control on a form into a drop-down tool window. As a demonstration of the technique, the class is used to implement a Word 97 table picker tool window.
