    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!??

    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:

    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:
