Creating your own toolbar in GeoMedia

You can create your own toolbar in GeoMedia. In fact, it is even necessary to create your own toolbar sometimes - for instance, when debugging your custom command there is a useful Unload Command that you can use to unload your custom command from the GeoMedia application process so that you can recompile and overwrite your dll. This command is not exposed out on the GeoMedia menus or toolbars.

Here are the steps to create your own toolbar.
  1. Open up a workspace in GeoMedia.
  2. Select Tools > Customize.

    The Customize dialog box appears.

  3. In the Categories list box, click on a category, e.g. Development Tools.

    The icons for the selected category appear in the Buttons group box.

  4. In the Buttons group box, click and drag out a command icon as shown in the figure below.

  5. Repeat steps 3 to 4 for additional command buttons you want to add to your toolbar. The additional buttons will have to be dropped onto your toolbar as shown in the figure below.

  6. When you are done adding, click Close to exit.
Removing Buttons from your toolbar

Sometimes you want to remove a few buttons or even remove the toolbar entirely. Here are the steps to do that.
  1. On the keyboard, press the ALT key and hold it down.
  2. With the mouse, left click on the button you want to remove and drag out from the toolbar as shown in the figure below.

    The resultant toolbar looks like this.

Thank you for simple to do but I was having a hard time remember how to do it. I used the instructions to make a fast launch toolbar.
