XLL+ Class Library (7.0)

Simple Toolbar Sample - Toolbar1

Uses the CXlToolbar class to add a toolbar to Excel's application window


This project demonstrates how to use the CXlToolbar class to add a toolbar to Excel's main window, and how to remove it again. The bitmaps for the toolbar's buttons are held in BMP files at run-time.

As part of the build, each of the bitmap files is copied to the target directory (alongside Toolbar1.xll).
