Toolbars allow you to place headings and control buttons on your forms so they are always visible for users.
Toolbars appear at the top of forms when they are opened in the Viewer, but when the form is printed, the toolbar is omitted. The toolbar is not part of the printed area of the form, and can therefore be used for items which do not need to be printed, such as control buttons.
You can add a toolbar to any page of your form. This toolbar creates an area at the top of the page that will not scroll with the rest of the form, and will always be visible to the user. This is useful if you have a number of buttons that you always want the user to have access to, such as save or submit buttons, or if you have a title that you always want to be visible.
Tips on setting up your Toolbar:
Parent topic: Laying out pages
- Create a Toolbar with all the necessary buttons, images and text you need then duplicate this toolbar to paste onto each of the additional pages.
- Make sure your buttons are set up properly before you start working with them. Decide which buttons you will need, such as a Print button, a Save button, a Submit button, and so on. Then use one button as the basis for aligning all the others relative to one another on the form.
Adding a toolbar to a page
The instructions below describe how to add a toolbar to a page.
Adding items to a toolbar
The toolbar is empty when it is first added to a page. Items from the Palette are added to the toolbar to provide the user with functionality.
Copying a toolbar from one page to another
You can copy a toolbar, including all of the items in the toolbar, to another page. This is useful if you want to use the same toolbar on each page of your form.
Resizing a toolbar
The Designer automatically resizes the toolbar to fit the items you place in the toolbar.
