I can add new panels in RViz very easily by inheriting the rviz::Panel class and adding the correct macros in CMake + a plugin.xml file.Then I can add my panels with the Panels > Add New Panel menu.

I would like to add a new tool bar in RViz like this one: image description

What is the easiest way?

There is a tutorial for creating new tools here.

The source code for that tutorial is well commented and is probably an easier resource to use when creating your own tool IMO. It can be found here. The question and the tutorial are a little dated, but hopefully these resources will help the people still using Kinetic like me.

I don't want to create a new tool, I want to create a new tool bar!
