The component features a collection based object model designed to fit in with
the Windows Forms controls supplied with .NET - if you have used the Windows
Forms ListView or Toolbar, you will feel at home with the Button Bar. The main
objects in the control are Items (shown as buttons such as "Inbox" in
the picture), which are contained within Groups (shown as buttons such
as "My Shortcuts").
Button Bar .NET lets you tailor the user experience - you have complete control
over colors, font and cursors at both design and run time. The control has
predefined styles that achieve the looks of todays popular applications by
adjusting the control properties for you if required - Outlook XP™, Outlook
98™, Visual Studio™ toolbox, with Office XP™ and Office 2000™ coming in version
1.2.0. See examples of styles...
Item buttons can be static (Oulook style), movable (like clicking a toolbar
button), or stay pressed (like a check button), you can choose sound files to
be played when a user clicks on a Group or Item and you can enable or disable
smooth sliding. Single Group header buttons can be hidden to achieve the look
used in Microsoft® Project™. Groups and Items can be navigated by using a Mouse
Wheel, enabled or disabled, set to be visible or invisible, or renamed by the
user at run time.
