I want to be able to click an NSStatusItem and instead of a menu appearing, I want to get a native NSPopover to show. Lots of apps do this. http://dayoneapp.com springs to mind. I can make the NSStatusItem using declares, dtPlugins, MBS, whatever.
I’m almost certain I played with this NSStatusItem + NSPopover years ago with the MBS plugins and I’m equally (almost) certain there was a thread discussing it but I’ve searched and can’t find anything relevant. If I remember correctly, the problem was getting the positioning of the NSStatusItem so that the NSPopover is displayed in the right place. I’d also like the NSStatusItem to be remain highlighted until the popover is dismissed but I’m sure that’s the simple part.
I’ve avoided buying MBS for years but I’ll buy it tonight if it can be done natively and someone can give me a working example, it would save me faffing around for another hour or two! Thanks for any pointers or better yet, that example!
