Customizable toolbars, menus and keyboard accelerators

« prev |  index |  next »


The features that allow the end user to customize the graphical interface so it fits their tastes and preferences have become the standard for any up-to-date application. Prof-UIS allows you to easily implement completely customizable toolbars, menus, icons, and keyboard accelerators in your applications (see Figure 1 and Figure 2). In addition, the below features are available without any effort from you:

  • Any toolbar can be quickly customized with the "Add or Remove Buttons" submenu available from the chevron button when it is docked or with a special button in the toolbar caption when it is in the floating state (see Figure 3).
  • You can also take advantage from the ALT customization feature (without the necessity to open the Customize dialog). By pressing and holding the ALT key, you can move, copy, or remove any toolbar button or menu item with the mouse pointer (see Figure 4).
  • Any toolbar/menu button icon can be easily modified with the built-in icon editor dialog (see Figure 5).
