Details and Options

  • Multiple toggler buttons in a TogglerBar can be depressed at the same time. The values associated with all depressed buttons are given in a list.
  • The vali and lbli can be strings, boxes, graphics or any other expressions, including dynamic expressions. »
  • The following options can be given:
  • Appearance Automaticthe overall appearance of the toggler bar
    BaselinePosition Automaticalignment relative to surrounding text
    BaseStyle{}base style specifications for the toggler bar
    Enabled Automaticwhether the toggler bar is enabled, or grayed out
  • Possible settings for the Appearance option include:
  • "Horizontal"equally spaced horizontally
    "Vertical"equally spaced vertically
    "Row"laid out like text, allowing linewrapping
  • Appearance->"Vertical"->{h,w} will display the controls in a grid with the specified number of columns and rows, vertically filling each column in turn. Appearance->"Horizontal"->{h,w} horizontally fills the rows instead.
  • If one of h or w is Automatic, it is taken to be the smallest number so that all the controls will fit in the resulting grid. If both h and w are Automatic, they are calculated so the grid has roughly the same number of rows as columns.
  • The settings for BaseStyle are appended to the default style typically given by the "TogglerBar" style in the current stylesheet.
