Workbench toolbar

The Workbench toolbar is displayed at the top of the Workbench window, directly underneath the menu bar.  The contents of the toolbar change based on the active editor.  Actions in the toolbar may apply to particular views, so these actions may be enabled or disabled based on the state of the currently active view or editor.
