Win32::GUI::Toolbar - Create and manipulate toolbar controls
Common methods apply to most windows, controls and resources.
Creates a new Toolbar object; can also be called as PARENT->AddToolbar(%OPTIONS).
Class specific %OPTIONS are:
-adjustable => 0/1 -altdrag => 0/1 -flat => 0/1 -list => 0/1 -transparent => 0/1 -imagelist => IMAGELIST -multiline => 0/1 The control can have more than one line -nodivider => 0/1 -tooltip => Win32::GUI::Tooltip object
See also the common options.
Adds a buttons-bitmap to the toolbar. BITMAP should be a handle to the bitmap containing button images, and NUMBUTTONS should be a number specifying the number of button images in the bitmap.
Note that this function will CROAK an error if the toolbar already has an imagelist assigned to it and will not perform the bitmap assignment, since you should not use AddBitmap on a toolbar that has an imagelist assigned.
AddButtons(NUMBER, (BITMAP, COMMAND, STATE, STYLE, STRING) ...)
Adds buttons to the toolbar. Note that BITMAP, COMMAND, STATE, STYLE and
causes the toolbar to be resized
returns the number of buttons in the toolbar
Changes the bitmap for a specific button. BITMAP should be a Win32::GUI::Bitmap object. Will fail if toolbar currently has an imagelist assigned. Will return nonzero on success, zero on failure.

You can also use : -autosize => 0/1 -check => 0/1 -checkgroup => 0/1 -dropdown => 0/1 -group => 0/1 -noprefix => 0/1 -separator => 0/1 -width => WIDTH Width of the button, in pixels. -text => STRING Text of the button.
Sets the size of the buttons to be added to a toolbar. The size can be set only before adding any bitmaps to the toolbar. If an application does not explicitly set the buttons size, the size defaults to 24 by 22 pixels.
Sets the state for the specified toolbar button. STATE should be one or more state flags bitwise-ORed together.
State flag constants are as follows:
TBSTATE_CHECKED The button has the TBSTYLE_CHECK style and is being clicked. TBSTATE_ELLIPSES The button's text is cut off and an ellipsis is displayed. TBSTATE_ENABLED The button accepts user input. A button that doesn't have this state is grayed. TBSTATE_HIDDEN The button is not visible and cannot receive user input. TBSTATE_INDETERMINATE The button is grayed. TBSTATE_MARKED The button is marked. The interpretation of a marked item is dependent upon the application. TBSTATE_PRESSED The button is being clicked. TBSTATE_WRAP The button is followed by a line break. The button must also have the TBSTATE_ENABLED state.
Sets the minimum and maximum button widths in the toolbar control.
Sets the command identifier of a toolbar button.
Sets Toolbar color scheme.
-clrBtnHighlight => COLOR. the highlight color of the buttons. -clrBtnShadow => COLOR. the shadow color of the buttons.
Sets the image list for disabled button images. Returns a handle to the previous disabled imagelist associated with the toolbar.
Sets the text drawing flags for the toolbar.
Sets the extended style for the toolbar. STYLE should be one or more style flags bitwise-ORed together.
Extended style flag constants are as follows:
TBSTYLE_EX_DRAWDDARROWS This style allows buttons to have a separate dropdown arrow. Buttons that have the BTNS_DROPDOWN style will be drawn with a drop-down arrow in a separate section, to the right of the button. If the arrow is clicked, only the arrow portion of the button will depress, and the toolbar control will send a TBN_DROPDOWN notification to prompt the application to display the dropdown menu. If the main part of the button is clicked, the toolbar control sends a WM_COMMAND message with the button's ID. The application normally responds by launching the first command on the menu. There are many situations where you may want to have only some of the dropdown buttons on a toolbar with separated arrows. To do so, set the TBSTYLE_EX_DRAWDDARROWS extended style. Give those buttons that will not have separated arrows the BTNS_WHOLEDROPDOWN style. Buttons with this style will have an arrow displayed next to the image. However, the arrow will not be separate and when any part of the button is clicked, the toolbar control will send a TBN_DROPDOWN notification. To prevent repainting problems, this style should be set before the toolbar control becomes visible. TBSTYLE_EX_HIDECLIPPEDBUTTONS This style hides partially clipped buttons. The most common use of this style is for toolbars that are part of a rebar control. If an adjacent band covers part of a button, the button will not be displayed. However, if the rebar band has the RBBS_USECHEVRON style, the button will be displayed on the chevron's dropdown menu. TBSTYLE_EX_MIXEDBUTTONS This style allows you to set text for all buttons, but only display it for those buttons with the BTNS_SHOWTEXT button style. The TBSTYLE_LIST style must also be set. Normally, when a button does not display text, your application must handle TBN_GETINFOTIP to display a ToolTip. With the TBSTYLE_EX_MIXEDBUTTONS extended style, text that is set but not displayed on a button will automatically be used as the button's ToolTip text. Your application only needs to handle TBN_GETINFOTIP if it needs more flexibility in specifying the ToolTip text.
Sets the image list for "hot" (rollover) button images. Returns a handle to the previous hot image list associated with the toolbar.
Toolbars must have the TBSTYLE_FLAT or TBSTYLE_LIST style to have hot items.
see also Win32::GUI::Toolbar::SetStyle
Sets the hot item in a toolbar. This message is ignored for toolbar controls that do not have the TBSTYLE_FLAT style.
Sets the image list for regular button images. Returns a handle to the previous image list associated with the toolbar. Note that this will CROAK an error if you have previously called AddBitmap() on the toolbar - you cannot use SetImageList and AddBitmap on the same toolbar.
sets the indentation value for the toolbar
Sets the current insertion mark for the toolbar.
sets the indentation value for the toolbar
Sets the maximum number of text rows displayed on a toolbar button.
Sets the padding for a toolbar control.
Sets the window to which the toolbar control sends notification messages.
Sets the number of rows of buttons in a toolbar. Flag that indicates whether to create more rows than requested when the system cannot create the number of rows specified. Return the bounding rectangle of the toolbar after the rows are set.
Sets the style for the toolbar. STYLE should be one or more style flags bitwise-ORed together.
Style flag constants are as follows:
TBSTYLE_ALTDRAG Allows users to change a toolbar button's position by dragging it while holding down the ALT key. If this style is not specified, the user must hold down the SHIFT key while dragging a button. Note that the CCS_ADJUSTABLE style must be specified to enable toolbar buttons to be dragged. TBSTYLE_CUSTOMERASE Generates NM_CUSTOMDRAW notification messages when the toolbar processes WM_ERASEBKGND messages. TBSTYLE_FLAT Creates a flat toolbar. In a flat toolbar, both the toolbar and the buttons are transparent and hot-tracking is enabled. Button text appears under button bitmaps. To prevent repainting problems, this style should be set before the toolbar control becomes visible. TBSTYLE_LIST Creates a flat toolbar with button text to the right of the bitmap. Otherwise, this style is identical to TBSTYLE_FLAT. To prevent repainting problems, this style should be set before the toolbar control becomes visible. TBSTYLE_REGISTERDROP Generates TBN_GETOBJECT notification messages to request drop target objects when the cursor passes over toolbar buttons. TBSTYLE_TOOLTIPS Creates a ToolTip control that an application can use to display descriptive text for the buttons in the toolbar. TBSTYLE_TRANSPARENT Creates a transparent toolbar. In a transparent toolbar, the toolbar is transparent but the buttons are not. Button text appears under button bitmaps. To prevent repainting problems, this style should be set before the toolbar control becomes visible. TBSTYLE_WRAPABLE Creates a toolbar that can have multiple lines of buttons. Toolbar buttons can "wrap" to the next line when the toolbar becomes too narrow to include all buttons on the same line. When the toolbar is wrapped, the break will occur on either the rightmost separator or the rightmost button if there are no separators on the bar. This style must be set to display a vertical toolbar control when the toolbar is part of a vertical rebar control.
Sets the tooltip object for the toolbar. TOOLTIP should be a Win32::GUI::Tooltip object. Note that this should be called before adding buttons, otherwise tooltips will not be registered. You can set a tooltips object for the toolbar on creation with the -tooltip option.
Sets the UNICODE character format flag for the control.
Common events apply to most windows and controls.
ButtonClick(INDEX,[DROPDOWN = 1])
Sent when the user presses a button of the Toolbar the INDEX argument identifies the zero-based index of the pressed button. If the button clicked should expand a dropdown menu, then there is a second argument that is set to 1.
