No, since this is not really feasible using wxWidgets currently. However, I am going to provide an option to assign shortcut keys for each external tool

I actually managed to implement this, so the new plugin (which will be available in next release) will allow adding custom toolbar buttons for the external buttons

You are fantastic, thats awesome. I have seen that feature in Editplus,
it allows user to add his/her own toolbars to call external apps. However
its project management, parsing, lexer etc was not anywhere near
what codelite can do. Keep up the good work and have a great weekend.

I have been using the external buttons for the last 3 days and its fantastic.
Everything works perfect. The buttons are not project specific, but I can live
with that. The only thing I noticed is that if you have the button toolbar
floating and if you edit/update the button tool bar, it does not remember its
old settings, it jumps back to the top and you have to pull it back down
again...but otherwise, it does everything I need to do.
I was also curious about the button ordering? How are they sorted?

Great job Eran.

This is because in order to create a dynamic toolbar, I am destroying the old toolbar and creating new one instead, so its state position and other information are erased from the docking manager

They are sorted by name
