The IDLitToolbase class is a subclass of the IDLitTool class that registers all of the features (menu items, operations, manipulators, etc.) of a standard iTool provided by RSI. If your aim is to create a new iTool that shares the common features of the iTools included with IDL, you should base your new iTool on the IDLitToolbase class. Since IDLitToolbase is a subclass of IDLitTool, it inherits all of IDLitTool's methods and properties. Additional features included in the IDLitToolbase class are described in Subclassing from the IDLitToolbase Class.
This class is written in the IDL language. Its source code can be found in the file
idlittoolbase__define.pro in the
lib/itools/framework subdirectory of the IDL distribution.
Objects of this class have no properties of their own, but do have properties inherited from any superclasses.
