New Toolbars in ChemFinder 7
Jim Dill, 11 Nov 00
Cfw.exe version 7.0136
ChemFinder 7 incorporates the same third-party toolbar / menu package which was introduced in ChemFinder for Word. The code is from Business Components Gallery (BCG). New features visible in ChemFinder include the list below. There are other features available which we would like to use, if time permits (see loose ends below).
This feature makes ChemFinder 7 more like Microsoft Office 2000 applications, and permits greater customizability. The scheme is so similar to MS Office 2000 that we probably don't need to document it in detail.

Loose Ends and Bugs
There are several features available in BCG which we have not hooked up, but would like to. These include:
ability to create new custom toolbars
bitmap editor for creating own icons
ability to customize right-click context menus
personalized menus --- most recent items shown first, then all items after hovering
Outlook-style shortcuts bar
Entry screen at program startup
Because some features are not hooked up, there are dimmed items on some of the customization property pages
It would be nice if we could provide icons for items on the Scripts menu
Reset All on the Customize Toolbars tab causes asserts
Toolbar info is now stored in the Registry, in the following location:
It may be necessary to delete this folder as new versions of ChemFinder are installed. Note that all the ChemFinder settings are now in the Registry --- CFW.ini is no longer used.
