Please use DesktopToolbar as a replacement.
Used to create a toolbar in a window. The Toolbar control is supported on all desktop platforms.
A Toolbar object contains all the buttons in a toolbar. You create the items in the toolbar with the ToolbarButton class and add them to the toolbar with the AddButton or AddButtonAt methods. An item can be either a button or a divider. A button can work as either a pushbutton or a toggle button.
|For best results, you should ensure that all your toolbar icons are the same size. Some platforms will size all icons to that of the icon on the first button in the toolbar.|
|You can only have a single toolbar on a Window.|
Although Toolbar inherits from RectControl, it has no mouse-related events. This is due to limitations of the operating system.
This example shows how to create a Toolbar via code. It builds a small Toolbar with Open and Save buttons. A Toolbar object was added to a window. The pictures that are displayed by the two buttons were added to the project.
The window has the following properties:
The following code is in the Open event of the Toolbar instance in the window.
OpenButton = New ToolbarButton
SaveButton.Caption = "Save" // Caption appears below the Icon
SaveButton.Name = "Save"
SaveButton.icon = SaveButtonImage // image added to the project
OpenButton.Caption = "Open" // Caption appears below the Icon
OpenButton.Name = "Open"
OpenButton.Icon = OpenButtonImage // image added to the project
SaveButton.Style = ToolbarButton.ButtonStyles.PushButton
OpenButton.Style = ToolbarButton.ButtonStyles.PushButton
// add to the Toolbar
The following code is in the Action event of the Toolbar in the window:
Select Case item.Name
MessageBox("You clicked the Open Button.")
MessageBox("You clicked the Save Button.")
