View Full Version : Interface Builder 2.5 toolbars???

Dec 13, 2011, 04:04 PM
Hello- I'd like to know how to add a toolbar to a window in interface builder 2.5. For some reason, there is no NS toolbar in version 2.5, and I'd like to know how to get a toolbar in a window. In the item inspector, there is a unify toolbar option, but no toolbar. Help!??

I tried that, but I can't get it to work, or maybe I don't know how... Can someone help!?

If kainjow's suggestion didn't work, you'll have to create the toolbar in your code. Apple didn't add toolbar support to Interface Builder until Xcode 3.

I have never created a toolbar programmatically, but I guess you would add the code to the awakeFromNib: method or to the window's initialization code. The following article may help you:

I'm new to programming, and I'd like to know where I need to put the code to create a toolbar

The article I linked to in my last post tells you where to put the code. If you're new to programming, I recommend starting with something simpler than programming a toolbar. The following article should help you:

Read Learning Objective-C: A Primer (https://developer.apple.com/library/mac/#referencelibrary/GettingStarted/Learning_Objective-C_A_Primer/_index.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP40007594)

Then Read Your First Mac App (https://developer.apple.com/library/mac/#documentation/General/Conceptual/Mac101/Articles/00_Introduction.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP40010611)

Then the NSToolbar Guide might make more sense
