I'm know how to get current positions of all ToolBars in any CoolBar.
But then I'm try to restore ToolBar's properties they not restored correctly.

When restoring toolbar positions, one thing to watch out for is that you need to set each toolbar's Top property BEFORE you set it's Left property.

This appears to be because the Left property *may* be changed when the Top property is set - i.e. if another toolbar is in the way.

I am using TActionBars on a ControlBar (not a CoolBar) so I do not know if the same applies to your config.
