Add A Second Row Of Actions Buttons To The Top Of A Form

I added a second row of Action Buttons that are only available during edit
mode, but you can make them available all the time or use other hide when
Create a long, narrow layout region up at the very top of your page and add
graphical buttons.

The cool thing is that you can use whatever icons you want and are not limited
to the ones Louts allows you. I created the buttons in Paint, then pasted them
into the layout region using the Create Graphic Button SmartIcon. Then, just
give the graphical buttons formulas using @Functions or @Commands.

I hid the layout region when in read mode, but any hide when can be used, or
none at all.
