    Hello Guys,

    I have no idea how to call this, but there is a way to have those apps showing in the Menubar top of Mac ? I need to have an app that would work in background and have like an admin menu or something like this similar to Dropbox or whatever .

    Any idea from where to start and how that works and what type of app should I create for this.

    Thanks in advance.

    The correct name might help you in searching. Items up there are called StatusItems, it's called the StatusBar, and if you have MBS there's a plugin for that: http://www.mbsplugins.com/NSStatusItem.shtml

    And the MBS mechanism also handles recognition of the current Dark Mode to provide cues concerning the color of your icons and text represented in the StatusBar.
