Creating the toolbar manually with DOM

Toolbars can be created at runtime by creating the corresponding XML representation in the AUI tree.

This example shows how to create a toolbar in all forms by using the default initialization function and the om.DomNode class:
CALL ui.Form.setDefaultInitializer("myinit")
OPEN FORM f1 FROM "form1"
FUNCTION myinit(form)
  DEFINE form ui.Form 
  DEFINE f om.DomNode 
  LET f = form.getNode()
After getting the DOM node of the form, create a node with the "ToolBar" tag name:
DEFINE tb om.DomNode 
LET tb = f.createChild("ToolBar")
For each toolbar button, create a sub-node with the "ToolBarItem" tag name and set the attributes to define the button:
DEFINE tbi om.DomNode 
LET tbi = tb.createChild("ToolBarItem")
CALL tbi.setAttribute("name","update")
CALL tbi.setAttribute("text","Modify")
CALL tbi.setAttribute("comment","Modify the current record")
CALL tbi.setAttribute("image","change")
If needed, you can create a "ToolBarSeparator" node to separate toolbar buttons:
DEFINE tbs om.DomNode 
LET tbs = tb.createChild("ToolBarSeparator")
