      Name: diC59631 Date: 07/29/98


      The best implementation of dockable tool bars
      that I've seen on Windows is the one used by
      Office.

      The specific differeces:

      Multiple toolbars/edge are supported transparently.

      The toolbar's docking behaviour is transparent
      and realtime. When the floating window is dragged
      to a "toolbar acceptor" location (the frame edges
      would work well in java, I think) the tool bar
      is simply added. If the drag operation continues,
      the toolbar will undock.

      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.3.0-C, mixed mode)

      Applications having a large number of commands end up with a large number of toolbar buttons, combos and text fields. These toolbar widgets can be grouped logically into toolbar groups.

      An application should be able to show or hide a toolbar group (and not only the whole toolbar), to undock a toolbar groups one at the time and to dock different groups on the four edges of the user area, as in applications like MS-word or Autocad.
