Easiest way is to use CSS, make a block level div (id instead of class) that is "position: fixed;" but you'll need to defines it's coordinates with top and left.
Is there a technical name for this bar? Thank for the pointer
I would just cal it a toolbar, and a google for "css toolbar" brings up this link which looks like it might be what you're after.
Thank you very much. That is a lot fancier then I was thinking but is the idea I was after :)
Don't know why the original thread was locked.
Found a toolbar script on my computer I had downloaded from some forum a while back.
I remembered that someone had asked about such a toolbar here.
Since I have bothered to upload the file to my hosting, and came here looking to reply to that thread, I'm going to post a link to it anyway.
Might be an idea to PM the original poster of that other thread and let them know
Just for reference, so this thread makes sense, the original thread was Please tell me what this is called and was started by Mr.Bill.
Here at NB, members can close their own threads. I think Mr.Bill closed the thread because he found what he was looking for.
I'm tempted to merge the threads, but it might be impolite of me to merge messages into a thread someone else has closed.
First thank you for finding a solution. I only closed the thread because the issue was resolved. I have opened it back up so Will can merge them :) I wouldnt have found it impolite at all. Keeping it all in one location is great for anyone looking for one in the future.
