Creating simple toolbar using RichFaces tag library

rich:toolBar, rich:dropDownMenu and rich:menuItem

This example demonstrates how to create simple toolbar using RichFaces tag library. RichFaces provides predefined tags like rich:toolBar which will be easily plugged into our webpages to display the toolbar component. Apart from rich:toolBar, to create menus we have to use other tags rich:dropDownMenu and rich:menuItem.

rich:dropDownMenu is used for creating the group of menus and inside that use rich:menuItem to add a single menu. You can view the image in this article bottom to know how it looks like.
