About the Toolbar

When you open a QST Weather frame in the current workspace, you will observe that a specific toolbar will be added to the right side of the Application Toolbar. The main and the frame-specific toolbars are delimited by a double-line separator.

It is also possible that your screen size doesn't accomodate all the icons belonging to the QST Weather toolbar at the same time. In order to have access to the hidden icons, you just need to press the button.

If you hide the main Application Toolbar, your frame-specific toolbar will be also hidden. In order to read about how to hide or unhide these toolbars, please click here.

In order to customize the QST Weather Toolbar you need to right-click on it, select Customize and the QST Weather Toolbar Properties dialog will be shown.
