Follow up question based on the following question:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Java/Q_28149674.html


Now, I have the icons and separators between them.

How can I create a line under the toolbar and give name to each group as in the mockup that I attached in the original question?

This is the final code that I have:

import org.eclipse.swt.SWT;
import org.eclipse.swt.custom.CTabFolder;

1. about the lines. you can create horizontal and vertical lines in this way:
Label line = new Label(theParentComponent, SWT.SEPARATOR | SWT.SHADOW_OUT | SWT.HORIZONTAL);
2. you can give name and tooltip text to the components from toolbar by using "setText" and "setToolTipText" methods. see the code:

import org.eclipse.swt.SWT;
import org.eclipse.swt.custom.CTabFolder;
import org.eclipse.swt.custom.CTabItem;

import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Composite;
import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Display;
import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Label;

import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.ToolItem;

I had one more question actually. How can I give name to each group of icons. Let's say there are two icons named stop and rerun. I can give name to the icons as you mentioned but how am I going to give a name to the group of these icons.

For example, in Word, the font control icons are labeled as "Font" in the toolstrip. Or paragraph modification icons are named as "Paragraph". How can I do it in SWT?

And how can I give color to the toolbar. Let's say I want to make the background of the toolbar light green. How can I do it in SWT?
