Custom Toolbox Components

Hello all,

 

     Just learned that it is in fact possible to add custom parts to the SolidWorks Toolbox. See video here if you are curious how to do it: SOLIDWORKS - Adding Custom Hardware to Toolbox - YouTube . I am planning on building out a hex standoff part based on the McMaster Carr hex standoffs, and I was wondering if there is any way to maintain the same functionality where you can click on a toolbox component and use the green arrow to change length when creating a toolbox component from scratch? I know you can edit the toolbox component and change properties, but I would like to maintain the ability to easily change length without having to go into that menu.
