Toolbar Strip

Add a toolbar to any window or user object in any location without the use of a menu object. With the toolbar control you can:

  • Align buttons to the left and\or right.
  • Display text next to the button image or under it.
  • Group similar items into a drop down menu.
  • Change the visual style.
  • Pick from four built in themes.
  • Apply a small, medium, large or xlarge button size.
  • Display in a vertical or horizontal orientation.
  • Add PB controls like dropdowns and single line edits.
  • Set tooltips for each button.
  • Toggle buttons so they appear selected.
