Using CoolbarManager and ToolbarManger on a Shell [message #444146] Thu, 07 October 2004 17:24

Hi everyone,

I am trying to create Coolbars that I can dynamically add and remove
coolitems from. I started by using CoolBars and CoolItems with Toolbars
in them. I could not find any way of adding or removing easily with
this method. I then tried to follow an example using CoolbarManager and
ToolbarManager which was on an ApplicationWindow. It works fine on the
ApplicationWindow but I need it to be on a simple shell because I am
using MDI Shell. When I tried it on the simple shell the
toolbars would not appear.

Here is a sample snippet of what I was trying:

_coolMgr = new CoolBarManager(SWT.FLAT);

ToolBarManager toolBar1 = new ToolBarManager(getMainToolBar());
_item = new ToolBarContributionItem(toolBar1);

_item.fill(_coolMgr.getControl(), 1);

I found it very hard to get any documentation for the CoolbarManager and
ToolbarManager apart from the API docs. Does anyone know if I can use
CoolbarManager and ToolbarManager on a normal shell or is it only on
ApplicationWindow that they will work? Also does anyone have any good
examples of how to use them?

Thanks a lot in advance,
