Yet another demonstration of a technique that you could use to produce dockable/undockable toolbars using FLTK. Tested on OSX, linux and WinXP. Should work anywhere that FLTK works!

There is already an attempt to do dockable components for FLTK2. And the author has done amazing job. Check http://fltkdock.sourceforge.net/news.html .

Yes - I saw that, and it is very neat indeed. There were a couple of issues for me though:

  • I wanted it to work with fltk-1.1

  • (IIRC - I'm not sure about this bit, it was ages ago I did this...) His toolbars are derived from Group, and are constrained to the parent window. I wanted mine to float fully, free of the parent window, so I needed an alternate method deriving from Window (and Group!) instead.
