Adding Hidden Toolbars
Go Up to Designing Toolbars and Cool Bars
Toolbars do not have to be visible all the time. In fact, it is often convenient to have a number of toolbars available, but show them only when the user wants to use them. Often you create a form that has several toolbars, but hide some or all of them.
To create a hidden toolbar:
- Add a toolbar, cool bar, or panel component to the form.
- Set the component's Visible property to False.
Although the toolbar remains visible at design time so you can modify it, it remains hidden at run time until the application specifically makes it visible.
