No return value.

Permission denied (0x80070005) The current page is not a pinned site.

This method completes the process of creating a Thumbnail Toolbar. You must add buttons to the Thumbnail Toolbar by using msSiteModeAddThumbBarButton before the Thumbnail Toolbar can be displayed.

Buttons cannot be added after the Thumbnail Toolbar is visible, but you can:

Note  To view the Thumbnail Toolbar, hover over the pinned site button in the Windows taskbar.


The following example adds two buttons and displays the Thumbnail Toolbar. The script stores the button ID values so that it can tell which button is clicked. For more information, see msSiteModeAddThumbBarButton.

btn1 = window.external.msSiteModeAddThumbBarButton('Images/play.ico', 'Play');
btn2 = window.external.msSiteModeAddThumbBarButton('Images/stop.ico', 'Stop');
