18.4 Using Icons on a Toolbar

If you are using a Visual LANSA action bar (i.e. the Process Style is "ACT/BAR") process, it will be presented something like this representation:

     

     ttttttt ttttttt ttttttt ttttttt                      

    

     IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII                              

     IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII                              

     IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII                              

                                                          

                                                          

                BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB   

                BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB   

                BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB   

                BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB   

                BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB   

                BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB   

                BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB   

                BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB   

                BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB   

                BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB   

                BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB   

                                                          

                                                          

 

The area represented by the "tttttt"s is the text associated with the action bar items. From each of these individual drop down menus can be displayed/selected.

The "IIII"s represent icons that have been associated with drop down menu options that have an associated icon.

The "BBBBBBBBB"s represents a bitmap that has been associated with the process (the method of associating the bitmap with the process is identical to that described in the previous section for "MENU" style processes).

Selecting a tool bar item from the tool bar area is functionally equivalent to selecting the same item/function from the drop down menu associated with the action bar.
