Now that we have the JWord application framework and menu in place, the next article discusses toolbars and status bars. We will be able to make use of the same graphics in the toolbar as we did in the menu items, and it will be surprisingly easy to wire it into the existing event handling strategy.
In the meantime, experiment with tools I have presented to you, and improve them in any way that you can. If you come up with some good ideas, forward them to me at email@example.com; I am always interested in receiving your input!
Until next month, happy coding!
