the ToolItem could be of type check box. You can have a custom tool bar "Filtering", but the items should be in a row, not in a column.
In the previous code I have added for you one check box item in the first tab /the last one, the one with name item_2_3/. It is not real check box, but you can change the icon / icon checked | icon not checked /. This is the only way you can implement the check box in the tool bar. Click on "item_2_3". If you choose the right icon, then it's check box. for example see the eighth icon in Eclipse, it's like checkbox.

item12_111 = new ToolItem(custToolBar12.getToolBar(), SWT.CHECK);

I put the following lines for the checkbox.

        //3rd group
        CustomToolbar custToolBar333 = new CustomToolbar(compTB3, SWT.BORDER, "Filtering");
        
        item3333 = new ToolItem(custToolBar333.getToolBar(), SWT.CHECK);
        item3333.setImage(image_floppy_disk); item3333.setText("Filtering"); item3333.setToolTipText("Filter the results below");
        item3333.addListener(SWT.Selection, toolBarListener);

Open in new window


Obviously, I didn't you the right icon but when when I click on the icon it shows like selected but not like a check box. It's more like a selected button and not selected button.

How can I do it as it is in the attachment that I sent in the first post of this questions?

I have created a custom component that meets the requirement from the picture. Add to the project the attached file. after that add to your toolbar an instance of the attached file in this way:
TICheckBoxes checkBoxes = new TICheckBoxes(compTB, SWT.FLAT);

for example after the last separator in the toolbar add this line. the same as CustomToolBar, and separators between tool groups, this class will represent the three checkboxes you want.
TICheckBoxes.java
