This code works fine
Select Case Item.Name
winWizard.PagePanel1.SelectedPanelIndex = 1
winWizard.PagePanel1.SelectedPanelIndex = 2
//messageBox(“Next Step clicked”)
winWizard.PagePanel1.SelectedPanelIndex = 3
//messageBox “One Off”
winWizard.PagePanel1.SelectedPanelIndex = 4
I would like to determine if the first button of the toolbar whose button name is tbarDream, a toggle button, has been pressed , and is now down or has been pressed and is now up
You cannot test for it. You cannot write
If toolbarWinstart1.ToolbarButton.Pressed = true Then
winwizard.PagePanel1.SelectedPanelIndex = 1
MessageBox “Dream down”
It doesn’t autocomplete - see feedback://showreport?report_id=48116 - but it does work.
Insert a Toolbar (= Toolbar1), and add a ToolbarButton, set the ToolbarButton to Toggle.
Notice that the name of the Toolbutton is ToolItem1 and it IS a Toolbutton - that is imposrtant!
Put a Toolbar1 on the window and rename it to MyToolbar
Add a PushButton to the Window
Put this in the PushButton
Sub Action() Handles Action
If MyToolBar.ToolItem1.pressed Then
If you are using a Xojo version < 2019 R2 then the code is
Sub Action() Handles Action
If MyToolBar.ToolItem1.pushed Then
Btw you have to use the name of the button (eg “ToolItem1”, not the name of the super class “ToolbarButton”. After all YOU might know which button you mean, but the computer doesn’t (it’s like shouting “Human” instead of “Tom” and expecting Tom to come).
P.S. @Anthony_Cyphers: maybe YOU could have helped Lawrence? Just an idea …
Thank you. I think my issue is that the type of toolbar button I’m trying to test is the togglebutton. To me the word toggle means to go from one state to another. So in my mind if the togglebutton is in the up position and is then clicked it will then be in the down position. So then I would like to at some point programatically ascertain the postion/state of the toggle button. I want to find out is it up or down. I don’t want to necessarily trigger the button I just want to know its state. That does not seem to be acceptable to the compiler.
What version of Xojo are you using ?
Add a module and name it “ToolbarExtensions”
Add this method to it
Public Function IsToggleButtonPushed(extends tb as toolbar, toggleNButtonname as string) as boolean
If tb Is Nil Then
For i As Integer = 0 To tb.Count - 1
If tb.Item(i) IsA ToolItem Then
Dim item As ToolItem = tb.Item(i)
If item.Name <> toggleNButtonname Then
If item IsA ToolButton Then
Dim button As ToolButton = toolbutton(item)
Return (button.Style = ToolButton.ToolStyleToggleButton) And (button.Pushed)
Then in your code you can do something like
If Toolbar11.IsToggleButtonPushed("tbarDream") Then
MsgBox "not pushed"
No, it isn’t. I use a toggle button in my code and test its state from a PushButton.
Which is exactly what my code is doing. So I’m frankly baffled by your response. Did you actually try it?
Thank you, that worked. A very nice solution that taught me about extends and enumerations. I did have to update it for 2019r3.2. which helped me learn some more about the debugger messages. By the way how did you post the code?
Thank you for your suggestions. You suggested the link feedback://showreport?report_id=48116 . How do I access that, as I cannot click on it.
You need to put ``` before and after the code on empty lines
