A collection of commonly used function buttons or controls represented in compact visual form.

The toolbar is often a subset of functions found in a menubar, designed to reduce user effort in using these functions. Authors must supply an aria-label property on each toolbar when the application contains more than one toolbar.

Authors may manage focus of descendants for all instances of this role.
