Overview

The Toolbar class contains methods to create and manipulate SketchUp toolbars in Ruby. Toolbars are collections of buttons that you can use to activate custom Tools or ruby scripts.

Also see the Command object for details on creating “commands” which can be called from your toolbars.

Examples:

toolbar = UI::Toolbar.new "Test"
# This toolbar icon simply displays Hello World on the screen
cmd = UI::Command.new("Test") {
  UI.messagebox "Hello World"
}
cmd.small_icon = "ToolPencilSmall.png"
cmd.large_icon = "ToolPencilLarge.png"
cmd.tooltip = "Test Toolbars"
cmd.status_bar_text = "Testing the toolbars class"
cmd.menu_text = "Test"
toolbar = toolbar.add_item cmd
toolbar.show
