Installs a background for the toolbar.
There is currently only one style for all FileMaker windows on macOS.
We draw an image below the toolbar buttons. Either we stretch it to full width we align it to left and fill the space on the right with last pixel colors.
There are little redraw issues, especially when resizing window.

Currently doesn't work in FileMaker 14 and newer. If you need that to work, please contact us.
