How To Design an XML-based Toolbar for SlimBrowser
If you own a website, you can easily design a toolbar for your website. The toolbar is based on an XML file which defines all the buttons and drop-down menus on the toolbar. You can also put a search box on the toolbar which allows user to search your website or any specified search engine. Other than that, you need also provide an bitmap file which includes the images for the website logo and all the icons.
If you have already created such a toolbar, feel free to submit it to us. If we think it is useful for our users, we could list it in the plugins download page.
Please refer to the following documentation to learn the working mechanism of XML-based toolbar. If you have trouble with the implementation, feel free to ask us for support.
SlimBrowser Installation Root Folder
SlimBrowser installation folder will be represented as $instdir. All the toolbars will be installed under $instdir\toolbars. Each toolbar will have a name and all the configuration files belonging to that particular toolbar will be put under the folder $instdir\toolbars\ToolbarName. For example, if the toolbar has the name "Google Toolbar", all its files will be put under the folder $instdir\toolbars\Google Toolbar
XML Configuration File
SlimBrowser Toolbar is based-on an XML configuration file named toolbar.xml. You can see the sample XML file for FlashPeak website toolbar. Please make sure the XML file is free of syntax errors. Special characters like &"><' must be properly encoded based on XML file standard. Otherwise, you won't be able to get it to show up inside SlimBrowser.
All XML tags and attributes are case sensitive. All tags must be properly closed to ensure the XML file is correct in syntax. If you want to use the symbol '&' as part of an attribute value, you need write it as '&' as the same conventioned used in HTML source code. You can't use the symbol '\' as part of an attribute value.
Currently there are two bitmaps to be used by the toolbar.
You can use any of the following macros as part of any URL used throughout the XML file. The macro will be substituted with its actual content when the URL is actually referenced during user interaction. The actual content will be automatically converted into safe escape sequences.
You can execute a built-in function as the action of a URL. The URL should be written in this format:
