It is very difficult to hide and display multiple Toolbars in a Host session.  Reflection 14 made it very easy to hide and display toolbars.


If using Reflection Desktop 16.0:
        Upgrade to Reflection Desktop 16.0 SP1 HF17 or higher (16.0.478)
If using Reflection Desktop 16.1:
        Upgrade to Reflection Desktop 16.1 SP1 or higher

When running these updated versions of Reflection Desktop in “Classic” or “Classic MDI” User Interface mode, a new dialog has been added to display all available toolbars.  Select Setup / Toolbar or View / Toolbars and each toolbar will have a check box next to it, where a check mark indicates to display the toolbar and the removal of the check mark indicates to hide the toolbar.

A HotFix (HF) for Reflection Desktop is a cumulatively built product update, intended for limited distribution, which addresses specific customer issues and enhancement requests; outside the regular Development release cycle. It is only available to Micro Focus customers with current software support and maintenance contracts, and only after contacting Micro Focus Customer Support directly.  A HotFix undergoes limited stability and quality testing and is intended for quick release to address specific product issues and should not be deployed to production environments without thorough testing.  It is recommended to upgrade to a full-release or a Service Pack version of Reflection Desktop when it becomes available.
