API Reference


UI-related Toolbar inherits from layout. It is the place to nest all the possible controls including buttons, labels, icons, checkboxes, combos, etc. For the full list of controls please refer to the library's Controls Guide.


Toolbar controls are put into the elements array and are arranged into a horizontal line.

To distinguish between horizontal and vertical control arrangement, use cols and rows arrays respectively.

Differently-sized buttons can be included into the Toolbar with the help of a custom function:

    cols: buttons(48) /*here you specify the parameter you want to 
                        pass to the function defined later*/
function buttons(size){
    return  [
    { view:"button", type:"image"+size,
        image:"../common/imgs/"+size+"/save.gif", width:size+7},
    { view:"button", type:"image"+size,
        image:"../common/imgs/"+size+"/copy.gif", width:size+7}
