Toolbar Editor


Unlike other programs, Brilliant Database doesn't provide a fixed set of buttons and menus for the toolbar. Here you can create a button or a menu with any icon, hot key and script. Script is an event that happens on clicking  the button or on selecting the menu option.


Select the Designer > Edit Toolbar menu item to open the toolbar editor window:


Alternatively, you may right-click the toolbar:

Besides the main toolbar, you can also create individual toolbars for each folder and query results:

Toolbar Editor Interface

The left part of this window (1) contains a list of buttons and menus. The right window part (2, 3) contains controls to set the selected toolbar item:

Use the buttons at the top of the list to:

  • New - add a new button, separator or menu to the toolbar;
  • Delete - delete the selected toolbar item;
  • Up arrow icon - move the selected toolbar item to the left;
  • Down arrow icon - move the selected toolbar item to the right.

Type Property

This property defines the appearance of the toolbar item:

  • Button - displays an item as a regular button:

  • Sub-Menu - displays an item as a drop-down menu item that is opened by left-clicking the button. This kind of item should be positioned after a regular button. This will add a drop-down arrow icon to the regular button. The following pictures illustrate the correct menu layout:


  • Separator - adds a separator displayed as a vertical line when positioned between two buttons, and as a horizontal line when positioned between two menu items:
