This code requires that a MenuItem, ImageList, ToolTip and a Form have been created and the ImageList has at least one Image assigned to it.

public:
   void InitializeMyToolBar()
   {
      // Create the ToolBar, ToolBarButton controls, and menus.
      ToolBarButton^ toolBarButton1 = gcnew ToolBarButton( "Open" );

      array<MenuItem^>^ temp1 = {menuItem1};

         gcnew System::Windows::Forms::ContextMenu( temp1 );
      
      // Add the ToolBarButton controls to the ToolBar.
      toolBar1->Buttons->Add( toolBarButton1 );
      toolBar1->Buttons->Add( toolBarButton2 );
