Description: Toolbar Paint is specifically
targeted at developers who wish to design their own
toolbar button graphics. It can open toolbar bitmaps
with up to 64 buttons and allows you to visually design
a toolbar using a wide selection of editing tools.
Toolbar Paint includes image manipulation tools to
replace colours, apply gradients and more. The toolbar
graphics can be saved as 16 colour, 256 colour, 24
or 32 bit bitmaps to incorporate into your application.
Additional plug-ins are provided in this download
that let you save a button as an icon file, and add
additional blur and brightness effects.
The button library manager is an integrated feature
within Toolbar and puts all of the valid buttons in
a single folder. You can either double click a button
image and have it added to the current toolbar, or
select multiple buttons and have them either added
to the current toolbar. The images can be resized
to fit the current button size or inserted at their
original size. The button search routine will search
a folder for all valid button bitmaps or image lists.
If an image list is found the individual button images
are extracted. Icon files are also available in the
list allowing for the easy import of icons into your
