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.
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.
