Anyone know a component that works like, for example: Firefox Bookmark bar?

Basically, just a bar where you can place any number flat TSpeedButton ... horizontally, and it has a chevron (arrow) button (in the right edge) if there are a lot of buttons.

And of course it should has drag and drop capability to arrange the (visible) buttons.

I tried to look for in JEDI-VCL, but apparently it does not have that component.

Ray Konopka (http://raize.com) states the following about his component suite meeting your needs:

"The TRzToolbar supports several of the features being requested, including the display of a chevron if the buttons go beyond the controls borders.  However, the TRzToolbar does not support re-ordering the buttons via drag-and-drop.  To do this, the developer would have to program this functionality."

So you might want to evaluate Ray's components.

Interesting ... But thats not suitable to my need.

I did some home works and found some piece of codes:

#1: How to add chevron button to TToolbar

#2: How to drag and drop / customize TToolbar during runtime

It seems it can be combined, but I dont have much knowledge how to achieve that.

Anyone can take a look?
