Custom Toolbar Manager

Post by clintonman »

Menu for managing custom toolbars that live in a 3d view. So it wasn't designed for the top menu or the bottom toolbar.
Use to select toolbar nodes, save them to a store or a library. Load from the store or library. Temporarily hide the toolbars to get them out of the way when switching to modelside. Easily save toolbars and transfer them to another layout.

Version 2 of the toolbar manager is here:

January 8 2012 - Update

I discovered that scripts can be run from the layouts tabs, so this update creates a script tab that can be used to recreate the toolbar manager. It makes it easier to open custom toolbars after a layout change.

Super great scripts! :D

Added all of the Unofficial Update's toolbars except for ClintonsToolbarManagerToolbar & WorkspaceNav with their original names to the Toolbar Manager
Add All UU Toolbars into Toolbar Manager.jpg

Saved the UserToolbarControlFrame in the Default layout minus the Prototype name
This eliminates the Reset from the toolbar's UI

Now when you switch to Model with any of these toolbars visible, you simply press the Hide - Visible button

Upgrade Nov 27 2022

New version 2 preview is available. The coding is complete. I call it a preview because there is very little documentation atm.

The new version uses various panels instead of toolbars and creates the toolbars almost like they are built in to trueSpace.

Nov 28 - bug fix - spamming the load buttons was creating multiple "x" panels
