please help me find it m8
1. Open your main button bar in the "Change button bar" dialog by right clicking on the empty area at the end of the button bar, or using the menu: "Configuration" -> "Button Bar...".
2. Add a new button by cliking the "Add" button.
3. Press the button marked "Change >>" and choose "Add Subbar >>".
4. Write for example graphics.bar as the File name in the Browse dialog and click OK.
5. Now a second "Change button bar" dialog window is opened with a new bar file called graphics.bar.
6. Add your graphic programs one by one to that new bar and click OK when you are finished.
7. Now you are back to the dialog with you main button bar, and in the right side of the dialog there will now be an option "Show as menu" that you can select. That option is ONLY visible when the Command field has a *.bar file in it. Select it and click OK
If you click the new button, the subbar with the graphics will open as a menu. If you Shift+click the new button it will replace the main button bar - use the first button to get back to your main button bar again.
Dragging a secondary button bar or "submenu/button" off of the main button bar would create a floating button-bar much like many other programs do.
As far as what petermad was talking about,
Here's an example of a very simple button bar:
NOTE: Make sure you tick: [√] Show as a menuCommand: %TCData%\GUI\ToolBars\PackUnpack.bar
Contents of "PackUnpack.bar"
When you click on that button - that is on your main button bar a drop down menu will be shown. There is also a wincmd.ini setting:[Buttonbar]
menu1=(+) Pack ++
Code: Select all
What all this _doesn't_ do, is it is not layed out like a Grid (opera-speeddial like). It is just a drop-down menu with icons.
