Default Toolbar

Using Toolbar, is there a way to save the settings of it (like: the number of buttons, captions of buttons, font, etc)?

Default RE: Toolbar

You can save the properties in the registry, or a file of your choosing. Here's a code excerpt that I use to save the visible tool bars and position of them in a cool band. The buttons and font's are saved as part of the form, but, if you're giving your user a chance to change them, you could easily add thier properties in here.

This should give you a starting place.

In my usage, I've created a class to handle my toolbars and coolbands called TToolBars.

procedure TToolBars.SaveProperties;
// RegKey should be like 'Software\AppName\Toolbars'
// That key will have subkeys like 'Software\AppName\Toolbars\CoolBarMain' << CoolRegKey
// That key will have subkeys like 'Software\AppName\Toolbars\CoolBarMain\0' <<BarRegKey
// where "0" is the index of the coolbar band.values saved here.
  // RegKey is global
  Reg: TRegistry;
  KeyGood: boolean;
  BarRegKey: string;
  i: integer;
begin // SaveProperties
  Reg := TRegistry.Create;
  CoolRegKey := RegKey + '\Toolbars\' + CoolBar.Name;
    for i := 0 to CoolBar.Bands.Count -1 do begin
      BarRegKey := CoolRegKey + '\' + IntToStr(i);
      KeyGood := Reg.OpenKey(BarRegKey, true);
      if KeyGood then begin
        Reg.WriteBool('Break', CoolBar.Bands[i].Break);
        Reg.WriteInteger('Width', CoolBar.Bands[i].Width);
        Reg.WriteBool('Visible', CoolBar.Bands[i].Visible);
        Reg.WriteInteger('Left', CoolBar.Bands[i].Control.Left);
      end; // if KeyGood
    end; // for i
  end; // try finally
end; // SaveProperties
Good luck


I love this forum. Your generosity is wonderful.
