Hello,

in my toolbar I've added an editstring. In it I want to show the filename currently in use. I know the status bar is better place for this but I want save space in my page.
First I engaged a terrible struggle with the editstring that appeared microscopic. When I lost the hope I've found a hint on the forum:

bar.Add(edts, edts.AddFrameSize(200,15));

and I won the battle.
index.php?t=getfile&id=146&private=0
But then I lost the war because it refused to adjourn its content. I mean it is unsensitive to the command <<= like in this snippet:
void  VegaTab4::Load(const String& name)
{
	editor.Set(LoadFile(name));
	//edts <<= name;     //doesn't work  
	//edts.SetText(name); //doesn't work
	edts <<= "prova";    //doesn't work
	editor.ClearModify();
}

So, is it possible to send a string in the editstring embeded in a toolbar?
Luigi

PS: the editstring is seteditable to false, but it doesn't work even it it set to true.

This works:

#include <CtrlLib/CtrlLib.h>

struct MyApp : TopWindow {
	EditDate date;
	ToolBar  toolbar;

	void Set() {
		date <<= GetSysDate();
	}

	void Tool(Bar& bar) {
		bar.Add("Test1", CtrlImg::paste(), THISBACK(Set));
		bar.Separator();
		bar.Add(date, 300);
	}
	
	typedef MyApp CLASSNAME;
	
	MyApp() {
		AddFrame(toolbar);
		toolbar.Set(THISBACK(Tool));
		Sizeable();
	}
};

GUI_APP_MAIN
{
	MyApp().Run();
}
