[GSoC] Improve Toolbars: Weekly Updates

The work this week also continued with the conversion of sidebar panels to
.ui. One more panel [LinePropertyPanel] after conversion to .ui got pushed.
With time moving ahead, I found the difficulty level of the codes (while
conversion to .ui) that I faced increased gradually with subsequent panels.
Currently three patches [1], [2], [3] are still open and they'll be pushed
after getting perfect next week.

For the past week, since Kendy was on a vacation, I concentrated on making
the patches better (the-that-time-open-ones: AreaPropertyPanel and
+ debugged some code around toolbarmanager.cxx to start with the next task.

+ After the above three mentioned panels are completed and pushed
successfully, I'll be starting with the next task- 'Individual setting of
visibility of text-descriptions of toolbar buttons'.

Time permitting, I'll be reading some code around it this weekend and start
with the actual next task from upcoming Monday.
Not to forget, thanks Kendy for all the help and guidance!

[1] AreaPropertyPanel :      https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/4402/
[2] PosSizePropertyPanel: https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/4837/
[3] InsertPropertyPanel :    https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/4881/

Thanks and Regards,
Prashant Pandey
