for iOS there is the UITabbar and UIToolbar controls, where the UIToolbar is either Icon or text, and the UITabbar is either/and … Technically there go along the bottom of the device screen, but in fact can be place anywhere desired.
Xcode uses something similar in Interface Builder (just a strip of “icon” only buttons)
I have searched, but cannot seem to find a macOS version of such a control.
I could create a custom one, but would prefer to use a native one if such exists?
Another example would be the control strip above the main IDE window in Xojo
