#52 TBSTYLE_EX_MIXEDBUTTONS broken when compiled with VC6


When Win32-GUI v1.02_02 (CVS checkout as at 27Oct2005)
is compiled with MS98 VC6 no errors are generated
during compilation.

However on running scripts which have a Toolbar control
using the TBSTYLE_EX_MIXEDBUTTONS style, it fails to
find the constant.

Setting its value to 0x00000008 at the start of the
script just creates other errors.

Error present on WindowsXP SP2 on both perl v5.8.4 and
v5.8.7 with MS VS98 VC6 Service Pack 6. Problem not
evident when compiled with either MinGW or MS VS.NET VC7.

Script example demonstrating this problem is the
toolbar.pl example posted to the list by Rob May a few
months ago.

    As dicussed on the email list, this will be a problem with
    older versions of headers. As this only affects
    GUI_Constants.cpp, and we have a plan in place to replace
    the support for constants (see the hackers list for
    details), then I don't propose to do anything about this.
