    I have Killer Toolbar which has served me well for some time.
    My version isn't compatible with Xojo2018 , and I am looking for a replacement, since I cannot buy an upgrade (without paying full price for a bundle of other things I don't want or need)
    What are other people using for toolbars and are any of them DarkMode friendly?

    I created an "IconButton" class that replaces "BevelButton" and use a series of those in lieu of a toolbar

    It is Darkmode and Retina compatible, allows for 4 sizes of icons, that can be placed either Above, left, right or below a caption. or it can have only a caption or only an icon-image-

    with all respect

    Actually:
    a/ I quite like it
    b/ The Xojo toolbar isn't good enough for me
    c/ That's far from respectful.

    @SubSonics ;.. !@#$% and with all respect, that looks awful and in no way how a macOS toolbar should look unless you want your app to look like a 20-year-old app. Don't do that, even for Windows it would be shameful.

    I would instead use the default Xojo toolbar and enable the darkmode support when compiling. That'll do.

    That is your opinion and you are certainly entitled, but I STRONGLY recommend you take a look at your candor. It is not respectful, professional, and its honestly mean.

    Perhaps you should read the Forum Etiquette post.

    @Dave Sizemore. Is your bevel btn class available to the community?

    The macOS toolbar.

    With the built-in functions and some declares from my own Retina Kit, I am able to create a toolbar that suits my needs, however I don't target Windows (yet) and so that may change.

    Also for some applications, I use declares to bring the window contents up into the titlebar area and there use regular controls.

  8. Personally, I am using Christian's NSToolbarMBS https://www.monkeybreadsoftware.net/class-nstoolbarmbs.shtml for this

    Thats not bad, but its not cross platform.
    Which is my big issue. I cant see a way to do NSToolbar for mac and (say) Ribbon toolbar for Windows, using the same Window.

    Please realize that what I offered was an "IconButton" a replacement for BevelButton, not a direct replacement for Toolbar, although it can be used to build such a substitute.
