Hello,

There is a pretty basic toolbar in the Tastrade sample app. But to help you getting started:

*in the command window, enter
create class mytoolbar as toolbar of d:\temp\myclasslib.vcx

*you now have a blank, empty toolbar.
*in the Form Controls toolbar, click the Button control and drop one on the empty toolbar, just as you do on a normal vfp form
*you now have to choose to use a Caption, an Image or both. I prever to use Image only.
*add code in the Click event, for example MESSAGEBOX("ClickEvent")
* if you want to add another button and prefer to have a blank space between the buttons, you must add a Separator object. You can drop it from the Form Controls toolbar to your own toolbar, at the right of the button. After dropping it onto your form, you'll see a black dot at the upper right of the command button.
*add the second button the same way you have added the first button
*save the toolbar

To show the newly created toolbar:
* in the command window enter
SET CLASSLIB TO d:\temp\myclasslib
loToolbar = CREATEOBJECT("mytoolbar")
loToolbar.show

Look in VFP help for more methods, like for example the Dock() method.
