Vala #5: Toolbars


A toolbar provides a neatly arranged set of icons/buttons for executing various commands or actions. Unlike a menu which is also used for executing actions, toolbars are always visible to the user and readily accessible.

Toolbars can be used when there are multiple actions that need to be presented to the user. Instead of providing a button for each action, a toolbar can be used instead.
