Toolbar button toggle?

Toolbar button toggle?

I've added a toolbar button by customising $APTCUSTOM/dialogs/editwindow.xml as suggested in previous Adepters answers. That's working fine.

My button calls a remote service that may or may not be available, and I'd like to change the state of the button to indicate this. It looks as if I can poll the remote service occasionally with timer_add_callback, but I can't see how to change the button to make it "disabled". Is this possible?

Hi Jonathan--

Sure, you can do this using dlgitem_set() to toggle the "ACTIVE"
attribute, like this:

function updateToolbar() {
local button_id = "Toolbar_AccessService"; # modify as necessary
for your toolbar button ID
if (serviceIsAvailable()) {
# good to go, make the button available
dlgitem_set(current_window(),$button_id ,"ACTIVE",1);
}
else {
# something's wrong, so disable the button
dlgitem_set(current_window(),$button_id ,"ACTIVE",0)
}
}
