How to Use the CreateToolbarEx Function

Question:
How do you use the CreateToolbarEx function? I want to use it to create dockable tool bars.

Answer:
With CreateToolBarEx, you’re walking into real low-level stuff that willrequire that you create an array of TBButtons, add bitmap images to them,and create a window proc command handler. It’s a lot of work to get thisworking properly.

Let me ask you this: Is your toolbar application-specific, or are you tryingto create some type of global toolbar? If it’s application specific, you canconstruct a form, override its CreateParams method and give it a style ofWS_CHILD. You can also remove its border and position it so that it’s”docked” on the side of the parent form that you choose.

As far as creating a child form is concerned, refer to an article I wrote on creating a child form. It’s an in-depthdiscussion of the various things you need to consider for constructing thistype of object in Delphi.
