I installed the Customize ToolBars plugin and created a few custom toolbars. However, I saw they only get a label name instead of the actual toolbar name. I checked customization and also printed all toolbars via Python:

from PyQt4.QtGui import QToolBar

for x in iface.mainWindow().findChildren(QToolBar): 
    if x:
        print x.objectName()

This results in the following outputs. The plugins I want to find names for are showing up blank or empty.

Is there a way to just add some name to these unnamed toolbars?

When loading the stored custom toolbars, the plugin doesn't give them names, as far as I can tell it rather works with window titles. So you'd have to do it by yourself - it probably won't do no harm to the plugin.

What you have to do is to change function MyToolBars(self) in CustomToolbar.py by searching for line:

self.bar = self.iface.mainWindow().addToolBar(item.text(0))

and adding another line:


Maybe the author would agree to add it to his plugin, if you ask him(?)

  • Probably fix it in a Qgis 3 version plugin.
