Can someone please tell me the correct name for the bar on OS X, where the time, date, spotlight etc. are located.
I call it the Menubar, but the control is called a NSStatusItem, inferring it is a Status bar?
What is the correct name for this?
The whole bar is properly called the “menu bar”. Within the menu bar, you have a NSStatusBar - this holds the NSStatusItems. So you can think of the Status Bar as the area to the right of the menu bar. And the icons on the Status Bar are the StatusItems. Phew!
