I am currently trying to set up a toolbar for my application.
I had a read through https://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/m/1048234/?srch=toolbar#msg_1048234 and as well the articles on the wiki about view buttton (https://wiki.eclipse.org/Scout/Concepts/ViewButton) and ToolButton(https://wiki.eclipse.org/Scout/Concepts/ToolButton)
So far everything looks fine. I managed to implement the ToolButtons in SWT (enabling coolbar, deleting the single outlinebutton that currently exists) and for the Swing Client(disabling Rayo). However there seems to be no way to get the ToolButtons to work in the web-client. The only way to somehow display them is to use the ViewButtons. But then they do not have the icons displayed. And when using the FormToolButtons the Buttons were displayed without any content (no icon and no text, just plain blue boxes) So this would not be an option either.
My main question is now, whether it is possible to get an implementation of a toolbar that consists only of icons (e.g. the save button everybody is used to from many applications) and is available in the SWT client and in the RAP client.
This is the perfect way to implement tool buttons like "save" or "print" (This change request was founed by the company where my current scout project is). It would be nice to continue the work and to make the RAP-UI also support tools buttons as inner class of forms.
I did not look at the RAP-UI code (I am not really familiar with this technology), but offten the RAP UI is really similar to the SWT UI code. You can follow the discussion for having tool buttons in forms for the SWT UI in the forum. Maybe this can help you to understand how it works and how it could be ported to RAP.
As for the FormToolButton, I am sure they work (as inner class of the Desktop class of your application). Here is a screenshot from an application in production using them:
Sounds interesting this feature. However it would be enough to have just the "coolbar" of the desktop with icon-buttons. So there is no way that is solving my problem for the RAP and the SWT client at the moment?
