Create toolbar on figure

Use this function only with GUIDE, or with figures created using the figure function.


t = uitoolbar
t = uitoolbar(Name,Value,...)
t = uitoolbar(parent)
t = uitoolbar(parent,Name,Value,...)


t = uitoolbar creates a toolbar in an existing figure and returns the Toolbar object, t. If a figure does not exist, then MATLAB® calls the figure function to create one.

t = uitoolbar(Name,Value,...) creates a toolbar and specifies one or more Toolbar property name-value pair arguments. Use this syntax to override the default toolbar properties.

t = uitoolbar(parent) creates a toolbar in the specified parent figure.

t = uitoolbar(parent,Name,Value,...) specifies a parent figure for the toolbar and one or more name-value pair arguments.


This example creates a figure containing an empty toolbar.

f = figure('ToolBar','none')
t = uitoolbar(f)


Toolbar objects do not appear in figures whose WindowStyle property is set to 'Modal'. If a figure containing a toolbar child is changed to 'Modal', the toolbar child still exists in the Children property of the figure. However, the toolbar does not display while WindowStyle is set to 'Modal'.
