I think you'd need to custom draw buttons like the ones your after or use images to load as buttons

I tried toying with gdi+ to draw the button and just set the drawn image onto a Pic control..lol

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GDIPlus.au3>

Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1)

Global $hGUI, $Pic, $hGraphic, $hPen, $hBrush, $hBitmap1, $hBitmap2, $hImage1, $hImage2
Global $hBMP1, $hBMP2, $msg, $GGCI, $Last, $State

    
$hGUI = GUICreate("GDI+", 400, 300)
$Pic = GUICtrlCreatePic("", 10, 10, 31, 31)
GUISetState()

_GDIPlus_Startup ()
$hGraphic = _GDIPlus_GraphicsCreateFromHWND(GUICtrlGetHandle($Pic))
    
;Create 2 empty images for the mouse over the button
$hBitmap1 = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromGraphics(31, 31, $hGraphic)
$hImage1 = _GDIPlus_ImageGetGraphicsContext($hBitmap1)
_GDIPlus_GraphicsSetSmoothingMode($hImage1, 2)
    
$hBitmap2 = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromGraphics(31, 31, $hGraphic)
$hImage2 = _GDIPlus_ImageGetGraphicsContext($hBitmap2)
_GDIPlus_GraphicsSetSmoothingMode($hImage2, 2)  
    
;Create a pen and a brush to draw stuff onto the empty images
$hPen = _GDIPlus_PenCreate(0x550000CC)
$hBrush = _GDIPlus_BrushCreateSolid(0x11000022)

;Draw a circle outline and a solid circle for the first buton
_GDIPlus_GraphicsDrawEllipse ($hImage1, 0, 0, 30, 30, $hPen)
_GDIPlus_GraphicsFillEllipse ($hImage1, 0, 0, 30, 30, $hBrush)

;Change the brush color for the 2nd image and draw 2 circles the same as the first.
_GDIPlus_BrushSetSolidColor($hBrush, 0x44000022)
_GDIPlus_GraphicsDrawEllipse ($hImage2, 0, 0, 30, 30, $hPen)
_GDIPlus_GraphicsFillEllipse ($hImage2, 0, 0, 30, 30, $hBrush)

;Change the Pen color and draw the down arrow on both images
_GDIPlus_PenSetWidth($hPen, 2)
_GDIPlus_PenSetColor($hPen, 0xBB000000)

_GDIPlus_GraphicsDrawLine ($hImage2, 15, 20, 25, 10, $hPen) 
    
;Create 2 hBitmaps so you can set the Pic control with the newly drawn image
_GDIPlus_GraphicsDrawImageRect($hImage1, $hBitmap1, 0, 0, 31, 31)
_GDIPlus_GraphicsDrawImageRect($hImage2, $hBitmap2, 0, 0, 31, 31)
$hBMP1 = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateHBITMAPFromBitmap($hBitmap1)
$hBMP2 = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateHBITMAPFromBitmap($hBitmap2)
    
;Send the newly drawn 1st image to the Pic control
GUICtrlSendMsg($Pic, 0x0172, 0, $hBMP1)
    
;We now have our 2 hBitmaps for the Pic control.

toxicdav3,

Find a suitable arrow-like character in a font and put it on the button:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

$hBut_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton(Chr(0x70),10, 10, 20, 20)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10, 600, -1, "WingDings 3")
$hBut_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton(Chr(0x71),40, 10, 20, 20)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10, 600, -1, "WingDings 3")
$hBut_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton(Chr(0x74),70, 10, 20, 20)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10, 600, -1, "WingDings 3")
$hBut_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton(Chr(0x75),100, 10, 20, 20)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10, 600, -1, "WingDings 3")

GUISetState()

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch

WEnd

Use "Character Map" to search for a suitable arrow shape - perhaps start in "WingDings", but there are plenty more. You can also get characters for 'Play', 'Pause', 'FF', 'Rewind', and lots of other useful things. :-)
