How to Customize the toolbar in Thinfinity® Remote Desktop v5.0

Thinfinity® Remote Desktop v5.0 Enterprise edition comes with great new features and one of them is the Toolbar customization. You can customize the toolbar parameters and restrict partially or totally the user’s options by eliminating buttons from the Thinfinity® Remote Desktop toolbar’s defaults.

In this guide we will show you how to do it and give you a list of the different features.

Originally the way that the toolbar is shown will be something like this:

Customizing your Toolbar

In order to start customizing the Toolbar we will have to open the file web.settings.js.rdp.js located in:

C:\Program Files\Thinfinity\Remote Desktop Server\web\web.settings.js.rdp.js on a text editor.

Once the file is open we will see something like this:

Observe on the code above that for the toolbarRestrictions parameter all the options are included for visibility purposes.  

To customize your Toolbar the only thing you will have to do, is to add the restriction after :  “toolbarRestrictions: [

In this example I will show you how to hide the ‘Actions’ button in the menu:

 

var web.settings.jsvm = {

        createToolbar: true,

        toolbarVisible: true,

        toolbarRestrictions: [

                “actionsMenuBtn”,

        ]

        

On the text editor after you set the parameter it should look like this:
