AlternaTIFF toolbar customization

Starting with version 1.5.1, administrators can customize the toolbar by deleting or rearranging buttons. This is done by creating a string value in the Windows registry at HKLM\Software\MIE\AlternaTIFF\toolbaritems or HKCU\Software\MIE\AlternaTIFF\toolbaritems. (If both values exist, the one from HKCU (HKEY_CURRENT_USER) will be used.) The registry value can be set manually, or by using a configuration file.

The toolbar can also be defined by the web page, using the toolbaritems parameter (v1.5.2+).

Each available button has a designated two-letter identifier (listed below). To define a toolbar configuration, list the buttons you want to be available, from left to right, separated by commas. Do not use any spaces. To leave a small space between buttons, use an underscore ("_") as the identifier.

The available buttons are listed below. The shaded items do not appear in the default toolbar.

For example, the default toolbar would be defined as follows:


Here's a definition for a fully-populated toolbar:


Additionally, version 1.5.2+ supports some special toolbar names, which begin with periods. Note that these special names are not button names, and cannot be combined with other buttons.
