How i can prevent that the toolbar hide buttons on resize? I want a fixed size toolbar

Olaf Reusch Jul 9, 2007 - 8:12 PM

You have seen the screenshots that i have linked? The toolbar has this function overloaded. No ExpandButton is visible, but my problem is that the toolbar buttons are hiden, when not enough space to show all of them. I want that all buttons are visible, even if not enough space to show all buttons. I need a way to disable this behavior.

Here are 2 images. This explain my problem. <- here we see a complete toolbar <- here we see a resized window with a toolbar that has not all buttons visible

How i can make that the toolbar has fixed size, that other toolbars change his row, when space is empty and not hide buttons from toolbar?

We guess you need to use the following toolbar class:

class CToolbarForOlaf : public CExtToolControlBar
      virtual CExtBarContentExpandButton * OnCreateBarRightBtn()
            ASSERT_VALID( this );
            return NULL;

Hi, i mean the first one. The buttons hide one by one, how i can prevent this behavior?

Would you clarify exactly what the behavior you need? Or send us a screenshot that demonstrates what you want to achieve? When there are no room for all toolbar buttons, the toolbar should have a lesser width in any case.

We are sorry but it is not completely clear what you actually mean. If a toolbar is docked horizontally and you resize the application window so its width becomes too small for the toolbar to contain all its buttons, the buttons hide one by one. If the toolbar had a fixed size, the application width would be determined by the width of this toolbar. Moreover, if you have dockable more than dockable toolbars and dock them into a same row, the application width would be as long as all your toolbars. So please let us know more about what you need to achieve.
