phoenix_title wx.ToolBar

A toolbar is a bar of buttons and/or other controls usually placed below the menu bar in a wx.Frame.

You may create a toolbar that is managed by a frame calling wx.Frame.CreateToolBar . Under Pocket PC, you should always use this function for creating the toolbar to be managed by the frame, so that wxWidgets can use a combined menubar and toolbar. Where you manage your own toolbars, create wx.ToolBar as usual.

There are several different types of tools you can add to a toolbar. These types are controlled by the wx.ItemKind enumeration.

Note that many methods in wx.ToolBar such as wx.ToolBar.AddTool return a ToolBarToolBase* object. This should be regarded as an opaque handle representing the newly added toolbar item, providing access to its id and position within the toolbar. Changes to the item’s state should be made through calls to wx.ToolBar methods, for example wx.ToolBar.EnableTool . Calls to wx.ToolBarToolBase methods (undocumented by purpose) will not change the visible state of the item within the tool bar.

After you have added all the tools you need, you must call Realize to effectively construct and display the toolbar.

wxMSW note: Note that under wxMSW toolbar paints tools to reflect system-wide colours. If you use more than 16 colours in your tool bitmaps, you may wish to suppress this behaviour, otherwise system colours in your bitmaps will inadvertently be mapped to system colours. To do this, set the msw.remap system option before creating the toolbar:

wx.SystemOptions.SetOption("msw.remap", 0)

If you wish to use 32-bit images (which include an alpha channel for transparency) use:

wx.SystemOptions.SetOption("msw.remap", 2)

Then colour remapping is switched off, and a transparent background used. But only use this option under Windows XP with True colour:

if wx.GetApp().GetComCtl32Version() >= 600 and wx.DisplayDepth() >= 32:
    # Use the 32-bit images
    wx.SystemOptions.SetOption("msw.remap", 2)

styles Window Styles

This class supports the following styles:

  • wx.TB_FLAT: Gives the toolbar a flat look (Windows and GTK only).

  • wx.TB_DOCKABLE: Makes the toolbar floatable and dockable (GTK only).

  • wx.TB_HORIZONTAL: Specifies horizontal layout (default).

  • wx.TB_VERTICAL: Specifies vertical layout.

  • wx.TB_TEXT: Shows the text in the toolbar buttons; by default only icons are shown.

  • wx.TB_NOICONS: Specifies no icons in the toolbar buttons; by default they are shown.

  • wx.TB_NODIVIDER: Specifies no divider (border) above the toolbar (Windows only)

  • wx.TB_NOALIGN: Specifies no alignment with the parent window (Windows only, not very useful).

  • wx.TB_HORZ_LAYOUT: Shows the text and the icons alongside, not vertically stacked (Windows and GTK 2 only). This style must be used with TB_TEXT .

  • wx.TB_HORZ_TEXT: Combination of TB_HORZ_LAYOUT and TB_TEXT .

  • wx.TB_NO_TOOLTIPS: Don’t show the short help tooltips for the tools when the mouse hovers over them.

  • wx.TB_BOTTOM: Align the toolbar at the bottom of parent window.

  • wx.TB_RIGHT: Align the toolbar at the right side of parent window.

  • wx.TB_DEFAULT_STYLE: Combination of TB_HORIZONTAL and TB_FLAT . This style is new since wxWidgets 2.9.5.

Window Styles. Note that the wxMSW native toolbar ignores TB_NOICONS style. Also, toggling the TB_TEXT works only if the style was initially on.

events Events Emitted by this Class

Handlers bound for the following event types will receive a wx.CommandEvent parameter.

  • EVT_TOOL: Process a wxEVT_TOOL event (a synonym for wxEVT_MENU ). Pass the id of the tool.

  • EVT_MENU: The same as EVT_TOOL().

  • EVT_TOOL_RANGE: Process a wxEVT_TOOL event for a range of identifiers. Pass the ids of the tools.

  • EVT_MENU_RANGE: The same as EVT_TOOL_RANGE().

  • EVT_TOOL_RCLICKED: Process a wxEVT_TOOL_RCLICKED event. Pass the id of the tool. (Not available on wxOSX.)

  • EVT_TOOL_RCLICKED_RANGE: Process a wxEVT_TOOL_RCLICKED event for a range of ids. Pass the ids of the tools. (Not available on wxOSX.)

  • EVT_TOOL_ENTER: Process a wxEVT_TOOL_ENTER event. Pass the id of the toolbar itself. The value of wx.CommandEvent.GetSelection is the tool id, or -1 if the mouse cursor has moved off a tool. (Not available on wxOSX.)

  • EVT_TOOL_DROPDOWN: Process a wxEVT_TOOL_DROPDOWN event. If unhandled, displays the default dropdown menu set using wx.ToolBar.SetDropdownMenu .

The toolbar class emits menu commands in the same way that a frame menubar does, so you can use one EVT_MENU() macro for both a menu item and a toolbar button. The event handler functions take a wx.CommandEvent argument. For most event macros, the identifier of the tool is passed, but for EVT_TOOL_ENTER() the toolbar window identifier is passed and the tool identifier is retrieved from the wx.CommandEvent. This is because the identifier may be ID_ANY when the mouse moves off a tool, and ID_ANY is not allowed as an identifier in the event system.

api Class API

class wx.ToolBar(Control)

Possible constructors:

ToolBar()

ToolBar(parent, id=ID_ANY, pos=DefaultPosition, size=DefaultSize,
        style=TB_HORIZONTAL, name=ToolBarNameStr)

A toolbar is a bar of buttons and/or other controls usually placed below the menu bar in a Frame.


Methods

__init__(self, *args, **kw)

overload Overloaded Implementations:



__init__ (self)

Default constructor.



__init__ (self, parent, id=ID_ANY, pos=DefaultPosition, size=DefaultSize, style=TB_HORIZONTAL, name=ToolBarNameStr)

Constructs a toolbar.

Parameters
  • parent (wx.Window) – Pointer to a parent window.

  • id (wx.WindowID) – Window identifier. If -1, will automatically create an identifier.

  • pos (wx.Point) – Window position. wx.DefaultPosition indicates that wxWidgets should generate a default position for the window. If using the wx.Window class directly, supply an actual position.

  • size (wx.Size) – Window size. wx.DefaultSize indicates that wxWidgets should generate a default size for the window.

  • style (long) – Window style. See wx.ToolBar initial description for details.

  • name (string) – Window name.

Note

After a toolbar is created, you use AddTool and perhaps AddSeparator , and then you must call Realize to construct and display the toolbar tools.





AddCheckTool(self, toolId, label, bitmap1, bmpDisabled=NullBitmap, shortHelp="", longHelp="", clientData=None)

Adds a new check (or toggle) tool to the toolbar.

The parameters are the same as in AddTool .

Parameters
  • toolId (int) –

  • label (string) –

  • bitmap1 (wx.Bitmap) –

  • bmpDisabled (wx.Bitmap) –

  • shortHelp (string) –

  • longHelp (string) –

  • clientData (PyUserData) –

Return type

wx.ToolBarToolBase

See also

AddTool



AddControl(self, control, label="")

Adds any control to the toolbar, typically e.g. a wx.ComboBox.

Parameters
  • control (wx.Control) – The control to be added.

  • label (string) – Text to be displayed near the control.

Return type

wx.ToolBarToolBase

Note

Mac: labels are only displayed if wxWidgets is built with MAC_USE_NATIVE_TOOLBAR set to 1



AddLabelTool(self, id, label, bitmap, bmpDisabled=wx.NullBitmap, kind=wx.ITEM_NORMAL, shortHelp="", longHelp="", clientData=None)

Old style method to add a tool in the toolbar.



AddRadioTool(self, toolId, label, bitmap1, bmpDisabled=NullBitmap, shortHelp="", longHelp="", clientData=None)

Adds a new radio tool to the toolbar.

Consecutive radio tools form a radio group such that exactly one button in the group is pressed at any moment, in other words whenever a button in the group is pressed the previously pressed button is automatically released. You should avoid having the radio groups of only one element as it would be impossible for the user to use such button.

By default, the first button in the radio group is initially pressed, the others are not.

Parameters
  • toolId (int) –

  • label (string) –

  • bitmap1 (wx.Bitmap) –

  • bmpDisabled (wx.Bitmap) –

  • shortHelp (string) –

  • longHelp (string) –

  • clientData (PyUserData) –

Return type

wx.ToolBarToolBase

See also

AddTool



AddSeparator(self)

Adds a separator for spacing groups of tools.

Notice that the separator uses the look appropriate for the current platform so it can be a vertical line (MSW, some versions of GTK) or just an empty space or something else.

Return type

wx.ToolBarToolBase



AddSimpleTool(self, toolId, bitmap, shortHelpString="", longHelpString="", isToggle=0)

Old style method to add a tool to the toolbar.



AddStretchableSpace(self)

Adds a stretchable space to the toolbar.

Any space not taken up by the fixed items (all items except for stretchable spaces) is distributed in equal measure between the stretchable spaces in the toolbar. The most common use for this method is to add a single stretchable space before the items which should be right-aligned in the toolbar, but more exotic possibilities are possible, e.g. a stretchable space may be added in the beginning and the end of the toolbar to centre all toolbar items.

Return type

wx.ToolBarToolBase

New in version 2.9.1.



AddTool(self, *args, **kw)

overload Overloaded Implementations:



AddTool (self, tool)

Adds a tool to the toolbar.

Parameters

tool (wx.ToolBarToolBase) – The tool to be added.

Return type

wx.ToolBarToolBase

Note

After you have added tools to a toolbar, you must call Realize in order to have the tools appear.



AddTool (self, toolId, label, bitmap, shortHelp=””, kind=ITEM_NORMAL)

Adds a tool to the toolbar.

This most commonly used version has fewer parameters than the full version below which specifies the more rarely used button features.

Parameters
  • toolId (int) – An integer by which the tool may be identified in subsequent operations.

  • label (string) – The string to be displayed with the tool. This string may include mnemonics, i.e. characters prefixed by an ampersand (“&”), but they are stripped from it and not actually shown in the toolbar as tools can’t be activated from keyboard.

  • bitmap (wx.Bitmap) – The primary tool bitmap.

  • shortHelp (string) – This string is used for the tools tooltip.

  • kind (ItemKind) – May be ITEM_NORMAL for a normal button (default), ITEM_CHECK for a checkable tool (such tool stays pressed after it had been toggled) or ITEM_RADIO for a checkable tool which makes part of a radio group of tools each of which is automatically unchecked whenever another button in the group is checked. ITEM_DROPDOWN specifies that a drop-down menu button will appear next to the tool button (only GTK+ and MSW). Call SetDropdownMenu afterwards.

Return type

wx.ToolBarToolBase

Note

After you have added tools to a toolbar, you must call Realize in order to have the tools appear.



AddTool (self, toolId, label, bitmap, bmpDisabled, kind=ITEM_NORMAL, shortHelp=””, longHelp=””, clientData=None)

Adds a tool to the toolbar.

Parameters
  • toolId (int) – An integer by which the tool may be identified in subsequent operations.

  • label (string) – The string to be displayed with the tool.

  • bitmap (wx.Bitmap) – The primary tool bitmap.

  • bmpDisabled (wx.Bitmap) – The bitmap used when the tool is disabled. If it is equal to wx.NullBitmap (default), the disabled bitmap is automatically generated by greying the normal one.

  • kind (ItemKind) – May be ITEM_NORMAL for a normal button (default), ITEM_CHECK for a checkable tool (such tool stays pressed after it had been toggled) or ITEM_RADIO for a checkable tool which makes part of a radio group of tools each of which is automatically unchecked whenever another button in the group is checked. ITEM_DROPDOWN specifies that a drop-down menu button will appear next to the tool button (only GTK+ and MSW). Call SetDropdownMenu afterwards.

  • shortHelp (string) –

  • longHelp (string) –

  • clientData (PyUserData) – An optional pointer to client data which can be retrieved later using GetToolClientData .

This string is used for the tools tooltip.

This string is shown in the statusbar (if any) of the parent frame when the mouse pointer is inside the tool.

Return type

wx.ToolBarToolBase

Note

After you have added tools to a toolbar, you must call Realize in order to have the tools appear.

Parameters

pos (int) –

Return type

bool



EnableTool(self, toolId, enable)

Enables or disables the tool.

Parameters
  • toolId (int) – ID of the tool to enable or disable, as passed to AddTool .

  • enable (bool) – If True, enables the tool, otherwise disables it.

Note

Some implementations will change the visible state of the tool to indicate that it is disabled.

SetMargins



GetToolBitmapSize(self)

Returns the size of bitmap that the toolbar expects to have.

The default bitmap size is platform-dependent: for example, it is 16x15 for MSW and 24x24 for GTK. This size does not necessarily indicate the best size to use for the toolbars on the given platform, for this you should use ArtProvider::GetNativeSizeHint(wxART_TOOLBAR) but in any case, as the bitmap size is deduced automatically from the size of the bitmaps associated with the tools added to the toolbar, it is usually unnecessary to call SetToolBitmapSize explicitly.
