Image Editor Toolbar and the Option Selector

The Image Editor toolbar was called the Graphics toolbar in Visual C++ 6.0. While the buttons on the toolbar are essentially the same (tools for drawing, painting, entering text, erasing, and manipulating views), the behavior and presentation of the toolbar has changed slightly.

In Visual C++ 6.0, the Graphics toolbar was initially a docked window on the left side of the workspace and the Options selector appeared as a box within the toolbar. In Visual C++ .NET, the Image Editor toolbar appears at the top of the workspace. The Option selector now appears on the far right in the Image Editor toolbar as a button with a drop-down arrow. The icon on the Option selector button changes depending on the tool you have selected. For more information, see Image Editor Toolbar.

The Text Tool Dialog Box on the Image Editor Toolbar

The behavior of the Text Tool dialog box has changed from Visual C++ 6.0 to Visual Studio .NET.
