Hello,

How is it possible to distribute a custom toolbar as an add-on, including its icons ?

I have thus far copied the custom toolbar's .xml file to the target directory user/config/soffice.cfg/modules/swriter/toolbar, but there are several problems :

1. first, the icons are not copied on the target machine. The icons for the custom toolbar items are not specified anywhere in the .xml file either. I don't know where to find them.

2. what if the installation path changes. Is there a way to retrieve the correct location where to copy the toolbars?

Thanks for your help.
Maxime.

On my Windows ME system the icons are stored in bitmap files in:

C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\OpenOffice.org2\user\config\soffice.cfg\modules\swriter\images\Bitmaps

That's all I can help with.

All right,

For the time being, my installation procedure involves copying the corresponding XML and PNG files to the correct location. But I would rather have a package like ones you can install automatically from unopkg.

If anyone knows how to do that, I'll be grateful.

Cheers.
Maxime.
