    Those little buttons at the bottom of illustrator panels...

    TheDollarBill Level 1

      You know... like the little trash can.  Or the "new layer" button.

      What the heck are they called?!

      I tried to look them up but I don't know where to start because I don't know the official name for them.  When I created my panel I made it a CSXSWindowedApplication for resizing reasons.  When I did that I was automatically given the little "tray" at the bottom where the trash can button would reside if this were the layers panel.  I'd like to move the buttons that I currently use into that little tray but I don't know how or even what to look up to attempt that.  Any hints?  Thanks,

      Bill

          The "tray" is called a status bar, and you can add text to it to show some "status" (i.e. status = "Some status")

           

          If you want to put buttons at the bottom of your panel you'll probably  want to hide the status bar:

          showStatusBar="false"

           

          The buttons should be regular buttons at the bottom of your swf. If your panel is resizable, you'll need to leave about 20 pixels for the resize handle.
