This navigation toolbar is implemented in JavaScript by DHTML.


This is the first time I make a Toolbar control for Internet-Explore-based web applications. This toolbar acts as a menu for the visitor to navigate to the right page, by a user-friendly way.

Sample image

The features are as follows:

  • Two-level navigation toolbar.
  • Customizable title, image and onclick script.
  • Style sheet is used to define presentation.
  • Supports multiple controls on the same page.


To use the control, simply include webToolbar.js and webToolbar.css in your HTML file. Then, inside the element (body tag, div tag, etc.), place a script tag and build the control via an array. E.g.:

document.all["placeHolder"].innerHTML = 
   new ToolbarControl(myTools, 400, 100, 80, 300);

A demo of how to do this is inside the included zip file.

Implementation issues

  • a ToolbarControlHandler is used to maintain multiple controls.
  • the tag IDs are coded with ControlID (see makeTabID and makeToolsID)
