Customize VB Toolbars

Here are a few simple ways you can customize your VB5 IDE:
  • Add tabs to the custom control toolbox by right-clicking on the General button and selecting the Add Tab command. You can also move tabs around and delete them, as well as move control icons from one tab to the other using the drag-and-drop method.
  • Create toolbar buttons for any menu command by right-clicking on any toolbar and selecting the Customize command. Move to the Commands tab, select the menu command in the right-most list box, and drag it onto the toolbar where you want to move it. Good candidates for this procedure are the Project-References, Project-Properties, and Tools-Add Procedure commands.
  • Create a brand new toolbar in the Toolbars tab of the Customize dialog box. After you define a toolbar, add buttons using the procedure outlined above. When the Customize dialog box is active, right-click on any toolbar button to change its image, create a group divider, show/hide text, and more.
