Chen spent some time working on some Toolbar effects such as the rich title areas made popular by social network apps such as G+ & Twitter. The new Flickr demo in SVN now shows a really cool ability to fold the title bar as we scroll down and expand it when we scroll up. It also shows an image based title area that can fade out of view during scrolling. Check out the video below to get a taste of the possibilities.
We hope to make an update to the plugin this week or the next, it will include the new Toolbar functionality and other fixes.
On the new VM front we closed multiple open bugs in the new VM and are considering it a solid beta. We are starting to look into new features that we can enable thanks to its architecture.

That’s an interesting demo. I notice that there is no back behaviour (i.e. on Android the hardware back key exits the application, irrespective of which form you are on).
Is it possible to mix SideMenuBar with native android action bar in the same app now? For example one form i might want to use the SideMenuBar, but the next form, I might want to use the android action bar?
Yes, should be possible with the Toolbar
Thanks Chen, very good work!
What a great feature. Will this be available on iOS too? And is it possible to zoom in the cat image when you tensileDrag the container down?
This feature is available to all supported platforms.
Zoom in should be possible, I suggest you to check out the new Flickr Demo from the project svn and have a look at the code.
I hear Windows Port in general is still flimsy, not sure what that status is on that but I do notice more Windows Phone support in my country.
This toolbar is available now ?, I’m downloaded the netbeans plugin updated in 13-01-2015 and Toolbar class and form.setToolbar not exists… Why ?
Right click the project. Click “Preference” select the Codename One section and click “Update Client Libraries”.
Im very interested in this functionality.
Is this being done via the gui? Or is this something that is hardcoded?
This is handcoded although you could use a Toolbar in a GUI builder application as well but you would have to handcode that portion in the before form call.
Where can I find the sourcecode of this exampe?
