cWebCommandbar is a special wrapper object for your web application's global menu and toolbars. The command bar object is designed to position your menus and toolbars outside and above the area occupied by your web views (cWebView). The command bar also manages notification events that need to be sent to menu items (for example OnChangeRights).
A web application can contain, at most, one command bar object. This should be located inside your application's cWebApp object.
A command bar is normally only used in a desktop style web application. If your web application uses the mobile/tablet style and drill down navigation interface, you would normally use a cWebMenuButton control as a menu container.
A command bar will contain, at most, one menu bar object (cWebMenuBar) and any number of toolbars (cWebToolBar). Menu bars and toolbars are, in turn, constructed from nested menu item objects (cWebMenuItem).

The above sample demonstrates a cWebApp containing a typical command bar structure with a menu bar and one toolbar. Notice that some of the menu item objects use specialized classes that are designed for a specific purpose e.g. cWebMenuFindFirst.
The Web Framework uniquely identifies each web object via a combination of the object hierarchy (object nesting), and object name. This means that web object names must be unique within their parent (i.e. each sibling web object must have a unique name).
Your cWebCommandBar object must be placed within the main web application object (cWebApp).
By default, a cWebCommandBar spans the entire width of the screen (the amount of space it gets in HTML). the height stretches to fit its contents and its basic height is defined by the theme (psTheme).
