Does anyone have an example showing how to add text to the buttons within a toolbar? I have tried sending the TB_ADDSTRING message and setting the iString field of TBBUTTON structure with the correct text index number, but the text never appears on the buttons? Any help would be appreciated, Will

make sure you used the TBSTYLE_LIST style.

Hmm, already tried TBSTYLE_LIST and it had no effect. Also tried BTNS_SHOWTEXT and TBSTYLE_EX_MIXEDBUTTONS (the style TBSTYLE_EX_MIXEDBUTTONS is required for BTNS_SHOWTEXT to function, according to the Commctrl.h file) and still the text fails to appear. Does anyone have sample code where they have managed to get text to show up? I have tried just about everything I can think of to get this to work, all without success. Thanks for any help provided, Will

If its a 'tool-tip' your looking for i posted the walk thru code for it on the board a few months ago... Tool tips are the little messages you get when you hover you mouse over the button for a second. You can find the discussion here: Tool Tips Hope this Helps NaN

after you set your BTNS_SHOWTEXT, TBSTYLE_EX_MIXEDBUTTONS, TBSTYLE_EX_MIXEDBUTTONS and TBSTYLE_LIST how you want it you need to send a message to your toolbar. invoke SendMessage,hToolBar,TB_ADDSTRING,ADDR TextOfString i believe the your TextOfString can be and array so that you can set each button separately. if you use the list style the text will appear to the right of the bitmap and if you use just mixbuttons the text appears to the bottom. if you figure a way to center the text on the button when u have no bitmap let me know. smurf

Here is a clearer explanation of what I'm trying to accomplish, along with the relevant code I have so far. First off, I am trying to create a menu bar (like the one in internet explorer) which is in fact just a toolbar with text only buttons placed into a rebar band. Heres what I have so far... .data

       szMenuFile          DB "&File",0   ; File Menu String
       szMenuView          DB "&View",0   ; View Menu String

                                          ; Double Null Terminated For TB_ADDSTRING)

Almost got it... Almost.... Changed the TBBUTTON structure members fsState & fsStyle from BYTE to DWORD in so style can accept the styles greater than one byte. This is probably not the correct way to do this but it does seem to work. The buttons appear with text only and the accelerator key is underlined (it acctually looks like a menu). I also un-commented the SendMessage TB_SETIMAGELIST to remove the space in front of the text where the bitmap would normally appear (see my code above). The only problem now is all three menu items are set to &File. I don't know if changing the TBBUTTON structure or something else has changed the iString member for all three menu items to index value of zero causing all three to point to the same string. Also, the call SendMessage TB_SETSTYLE is required. Just setting the same values in the fsStyle member of the TBBUTTON structure does not work for some reason?? Anyhow here are the styles I used to get text to display in the SendMessage TB_SETSTYLE call. TBSTYLE_BUTTON - Standard button TBSTYLE_FLAT - This one highlights the button when mouse is over the button as a normal menu does TBSTYLE_AUTOSIZE - This is supposed to size the button based on the width of the text, but until I get the other strings to display, I don't really know if this is working or not. TBSTYLE_CHECKGROUP - This one is not working, when you click on a normal menu item, it stays depressed which this style should produce??? TBSTYLE_LIST - Will not work at all unless this style is set. Anyhow, if someone has better luck with this let me know, Will

On my Web Page If you would download the AsmEdit package and then in the Code Generator routine you can generate many different types of Toolbars. Or you could look at the Buttons example. Below is a little sample of a Toolbar with text:

      .model flat, stdcall
      option casemap :none   ; case sensitive

You might want to make sure that File, View, and Help are not being treated as macro variables by replacing & with &&.
