menu items

out of curiosity, would it be possible to make a menu item in ass?

How do you mean? dynamically?

Well, I don’t know the term, but I have, for example, a menu bar extra in my menu bar that displays my IP address. I was wondering if a similar application could be reproduced in ASS.

Is there a way to make one dynamically?


Close, the proper name is Menu Extra. :slight_smile:
See this tutorial at Cocoa Dev Central on making a NSMenuExtra using Objective-C. Since the API used is private, it seems unlikely that Apple will ever add it to AppleScript Studio.
