The Add Script to Toolbar command opens a new dialog (shown below)
which allows you to select an existing script which will be linked to a toolbar
icon on the Script toolbar.
The Add Script dialog provides script browsing and selection,
as well as icon choice to be used on the Script toolbar.
There are several script related details that must be specified before a script
may be added to the toolbar. These details are described below:
The filename of the script that is to be saved to the toolbar. You may use the
Browse button to search for a script. Importantly, only the script's
path is stored by Pointwise — not the script itself. Therefore, any
changes made to the script after adding it to the toolbar will be reflected
when the script is activated via the Script Toolbar.
The name associated with the script. This name will appear as a tooltip.
The script type will most commonly be Glyph. Other scripting languages can be
supported via Script, Glyph server if you've configured other scripting
languages to work with Pointwise's Glyph Server.
At the bottom of the dialog, select an icon from Pointwise's extensive
palette of icons to use for your script on the Script toolbar. The
chosen icon will appear on the toolbar with an overlaid paper scroll (an
example is shown below) to indicate it is linked to a script.

By default, the script toolbar is snapped to the right of the
Display window beneath the Show Commands Toolbar.
