I want to create a button and add it to the QGIS toolbar or alternatively create my own toolbar and add the button here.

A plugin should be started when the user clicks the button.


You can add icons to the toolbar or menus. For more info check the pyqgis Cookbook http://www.qgis.org/pyqgis-cookbook/plugins.html

def initGui(self):
    # create action that will start plugin configuration
    self.action = QAction(QIcon(":/plugins/testplug/icon.png"), "Test plugin", self.iface.mainWindow())
    self.action.setWhatsThis("Configuration for test plugin")
    self.action.setStatusTip("This is status tip")
    QObject.connect(self.action, SIGNAL("triggered()"), self.run)

    # add toolbar button and menu item
    self.iface.addPluginToMenu("&Test plugins", self.action)
