As you can see with the ToolBar Editor, I am simplifying things. I am creating 1 toolbar and housing it in 1 rebar (whereas FireFly had unlimited rebars and toolbar). Over the past number of years I've found that most people only create 1 toolbar and put it in 1 rebar. I'm trying to keep WinFBE simple.

There is an error (that I just fixed) in the ToolBar button Enabled property. So, syntax like the following will fail for the current uploaded package:

Code: [Select]
Form1.ToolBar.Button(0).Enabled = false
I will upload a new package (with this fix) once I receive more feedback on this latest beta and after I have had time to do more testing as well.


You will also notice that you refer to ToolBar buttons by their index value (not by a Name like you would do for TopMenu items). This is also the same approach used for the StatusBar.
Code: [Select]
Form1.StatusBar.Panel(0).Text = "My StatusBar Panel"

For MainMenu items you would use the menu item Name:
Code: [Select]
Form1.MainMenu.ByMenuName("mnuOpen").Enabled = false

Do not use this Beta. I've found several issues with the ToolBars.
