    You will either need to use the "Monkey Bread Software" plugins (the easiest way) or use the macoslib toolkit from github. There is no way to create a status item entry directly within Xojo.

    @rose B but github source have there years.

    Last I checked, Github maintains a high level of refrigeration, so most (not all) of the code stays reasonable fresh.

    The NextStep/Cocoa code for these hasn't changed in may years. However, if you are not comfortable with managing the declares yourself, then I urge you to consider the MBS plugins.

    Here are Christian's original videos on YouTube. They are over 7 years old and he's using the older REAlbasic IDE, but the logic is still the same with today's Xojo.
