Detailed Description

The QWinThumbnailToolBar class allows manipulating the thumbnail toolbar of a window.

Applications can embed a toolbar in the thumbnail of a window, which is shown when hovering over its taskbar icon. A thumbnail toolbar may provide quick access to the commands of a window without requiring the user to restore or activate the window.

Media player thumbnail toolbar

The following example code illustrates how to use the functions in the QWinThumbnailToolBar and QWinThumbnailToolButton class to implement a thumbnail toolbar:

    QWinThumbnailToolBar *thumbbar = new QWinThumbnailToolBar(widget);
    thumbbar->setWindow(widget->windowHandle());

    QWinThumbnailToolButton *settings = new QWinThumbnailToolButton(thumbbar);
    settings->setToolTip("Settings");
    settings->setIcon(":/settings.png");
    settings->setDismissOnClick(true);
    connect(settings, SIGNAL(clicked()), settingsPage, SLOT(show()));

    QWinThumbnailToolButton *playPause = new QWinThumbnailToolButton(thumbbar);
    playPause->setToolTip("Play/Pause");
    playPause->setIcon(":/play.png");
    connect(playPause, SIGNAL(clicked()), mediaPlayer, SLOT(play()));

    thumbbar->addButton(settings);
    thumbbar->addButton(playPause);
