Create Personalize Application toolbar in SharePoint 2010

In this article I am going to explain about the application toolbar which will display the applications based on the current login users.

To achieve the requirement we need to create two custom lists i.e. "All Apps" and "User App".

The "All Apps" list will have the columns shown below:


The "User Apps" list will have the columns shown below:


  • Title: column contains the Users Name
  • Application: column will be the lookup column from "All Apps" with multiple option selection.

In this article I am not going to explain the process of adding users with applications. For your reference I am just adding the user manually and the final list will look as shown below.

The "All Apps" list after filling data will look like:


The "User Apps" will look like below:


I have created a user control which contains the UI for the Application bar.

For User: TSTMOS30


For User: TSTMOS36


You can find the code attached with this article.

Hope it will support you while creating an Application toolbar with personalization.
