Detailed Description

The QMacToolBar class wraps the native NSToolbar class.

QMacToolBar provides a Qt-based API for NSToolBar. The toolbar displays one or more items. Each toolbar item has an icon and a text label.

The toolbar must be attached to a QWindow using the attachToWindow() method in order to be visible. The toolbar is attached to the native NSWindow and is displayed above the QWindow. QMacToolBar visibility follows window visibility.

Add items by calling addItem(). The toolbar has a customization menu which is available to the user from the toolbar context menu. Use addAllowedItem() to add items to the customization menu.

Usage: (QtWidgets)

QMacToolBar *toolBar = new QMacToolBar(this);
QMacToolBarItem *toolBarItem = toolBar->addItem(QIcon(), QStringLiteral("foo"));
connect(toolBarItem, SIGNAL(activated()), this, SLOT(fooClicked()));

this->window()->winId(); // create window->windowhandle()
