Welcome to the forums.
First thing to note that on non touch screen devices, tool bars are actually not that useful. - menus provide an easier to use way of providing 'actions' that users can initiate, and they do it without taking up screen space.
However you should be able to create a useful toolbar by putting together some Buttons, an EquallySpaced manager from here:
and putting these in the title area of a MainScreen, see
I recommend that you actually just cut and paste the classes you need from the Advanced UI source, rather than trying to treat it as a library.
You will find this challenging I expect, but give it a go, and remember to do it step at a time, don't try to code it all at once, because it break in loads of places and you won't know where.
