Creating Menu in Toolbar
Sometimes we want to create several toolbar buttons that perform similar actions.
For example, you have several Export Templates and want to create a toolbar button for each of them,
but you don"t want to jam your toolbar. In this case you can create a menu in the Toolbar.
The principle of toolbar menus creation is quite simple: there are three types of toolbar items.
- Button - a regular toolbar element that performs a specified action after
you click on it.
- Separator - is used to separate other toolbar elements.
- Sub-menu - is used to create toolbar menus.
To create a toolbar menu you should first create a button (you don"t have to set any actions for it).
Then create the necessary menu items: click New button, specify the necessary action
for the created item and set its Type property to Sub-Menu.
After creating all the necessary menu items, place them straight after the button you created first:
In this case the first toolbar item (the "Edit" button) will be displayed as
a parent element for the menu and all Sub-menu items after it will become
menu items. Let"s look at the resulting toolbar:
You should use menus when you can group several toolbar items. That will help you
group similar toolbar items and reduce toolbar length.
Note: You can select an icon for the menu, but you can"t specify icons
for its menu-items. You can insert separators in menus. To do that, create a
separator and place it between sub-menu items:
The result will look as follows:
