Custom toolbars and mini applications with Action Bar
The Action Bar ImageJ plugin facilitates creation of additional custom toolbars, using simple macro-like toolbar description file. Readers will learn how to setup a basic action bar, and how to use the latest features of this plugin. Button actions are basically macro programs, so action bars can interact with all standard ImageJ components. Primary use of these custom toolbars is to keep at hand often used commands, plugins and macros, but toolbars sets can be turned into mini applications with minimal effort. With these highly task-oriented applications, end users can focus on just using a simple system with absolutely no prior knowledge of ImageJ. This paper is aimed at ImageJ users with some previous experience with the macro language.
This is the support material for a workshop I gave at the 2008 ImageJ conference in Luxembourg.
