Topic: How to create a toolbar button?
Conf: (P-PDF) Beginners, Msg: 150214

Hey I am a beginner in plug-in development. I am trying to create a button on the toolbar. I am using the plug-in wizard from the Acrobat SDK, however the code still doesn't work. I was wondering does anybody know where I am going wrong, the toolbar is not full so it should fit. Here is the code I am using:

AVToolBar toolBar = AVAppGetToolBar ();
AVToolButton toolButton, toolsSeparator;

// Set up our toolbutton
toolsSeparator = AVToolBarGetButtonByName (toolBar, ASAtomFromString("endToolsGroup"));
toolButton = AVToolButtonNew (ASAtomFromString("ADBE:Trailblazer"), GetButtonIcon(), true, false);

// Toolbutton internal by default.
//AVToolButtonSetExternal (toolButton, TOOLBUTTON_EXTERNAL);

AVToolBarAddButton(toolBar, toolButton, false, toolsSeparator);
AVToolButtonSetExecuteProc (toolButton,
ASCallbackCreateProto(AVExecuteProc, &TrailblazerCommand), NULL);
AVToolButtonSetComputeEnabledProc (toolButton,
ASCallbackCreateProto(AVComputeEnabledProc, &TrailblazerIsEnabled), NULL);
AVToolButtonSetHelpText (toolButton, "Activates Trailblazer command");
return true;

Would be grateful for any help.
