Is it possible to add toolbar buttons at run-time? Sample code would be extremely helpful.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes, it is possible to add buttons at run time. Do the following:

1. Create an application. Drop a button onto the form. Drop a TToolbar also onto the form.

2. In the variabled section, add ButtonNew as a TButton variable.

3. For Button1 click event, add the event hadnling code.

4. The whole program should be as follows :

----------------------------
unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,
  StdCtrls, ToolWin, ComCtrls;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    ToolBar1: TToolBar;
    Button1: TButton;
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;
  ButtonNew:TButton;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
      {Creating a New Button}
      ButtonNew := TButton.Create(ToolBar1);
      {Setting the parent to the ToolBar}
      ButtonNew.Parent := ToolBar1;
end;

end.

I would like to add TToolButtons to it, not normal controls. TToolButtons can be made flat-looking, a la Netscape.

Instead of the TButton component, you can use the TSpeedButton component and set the Flat property to true on those buttons. This will work well.
