Setting/getting value

You can use the setState() and getState() methods of Toolbar to change and access the value of Input.

To fill in Input with some text, call setState() with a key-value pair as a parameter, where the key is the ID of the input and the value is the text:

{
    type: "input",
    id:"search",
    value: ""
}
...
toolbar.setState({search:"Summer"});

To get the text that is currently inside the Input control, call getState():

toolbar.getState(); //-> {search:"Summer"}
