Type: New Feature
Affects Version/s: current
Fix Version/s: None
Component/s: JDIC API (package org.jdesktop.jdic.tray)
Operating System: Mac OS X
I'm using Mac OS X 10.5.7 and in this version the NSStatusItem that have their
menu set have a special look and feel where the top of the menu is square
connecting with the status bar and the bottom is rounded. We cannot easily
replicate this in swing code or SWT so it would be nice if the Mac
implementation of system tray allowed you to setup menu items natively to get
the nice look and feel.
I'm already using JDIC but I'm trying to do this with my own JNI tests and it
seems fairly easy. But it would be best if everyone could benefit from this.
I think the API could be a generic interface for configuring the
menus/menu-items so it could be useful for other platforms if they have similar
issues. Hopefully someone is still working on this project Thanks!
