The Trees The Fork Hemlock The Map Traffic Control

Popup Tool Bar




A popup toolbar for easy access to one off utilities.


Frequently I find myself wanting an omnipresent way to activate small one shot utilities similar to the mac task bar. I could do this in windows directly, but I would like a clean way for the tools to have completion information and documentation which isn't easy to do in the start menu. My solution is to build a command bar which is summonable via a key combination globally. The tool will then have a mechanism for automatically adding elements to the completion list at any time.


This project is actually one that I have worked on in the past (pre daily blog posts) but my old version was a single c# app with the tools built in. I am going to adapt that project to be more extensible and allow for any application with the correct format and registration to show up in the command list.
