Is it possible to place a custom control on a toolbar or menu? Specifically, I would like to have a slider control on a toolbar or a tear-off menu.

Thanks
Tom

Yes, our TextBox and ComboBox implementations use those particular controls on each link. It's a bit tricky to do because you have to ensure that all control instances on the links are synced up with the command. But anyhow if you'd like some sample code, send us an email and we can send you an implementation that you can use as a base to modify and make your own.

I'm assuming that a new "slider" would be created for each command link. So that multiple links can be created. Is this a correct assumption?

I'm currently evaluating the UIStudio as a possible replacement for Infragistics toolbars. I like the ability to save/load differential changes to toolbars. Infra only allows all or nothing, which makes me wipe out the user's customizations when upgrading. Also, the key chords are nice and the merging would solve another problem I'm having.

Thanks

Hi Tom,

Yes that's exactly right. Each link needs its own "slider" control instantiated. Then you have to keep their values all in sync with the core command.

Hi,

I need to do something similar to this as well. I want to have dockable toolbar with a grid control on it.

I would like to see a sample snippet as well. It sounds like many people would like to know how this can be done - have you posted the code snippet anywhere?

Thanks.
Miriam
