(Flash Builder 4 beta)
I'm developing a flex/air application for mac os x exclusivley. The application should be very unobtrusive to the user, and as such, I want to eliminate the dock icon for the application and have it run exclusivley in the os x menu bar. Similar to a twitterific app. I've scoured the documentation for a way to do this, but only come up with methods for a system tray in windows, and dock icon function on a mac.
Does AIR really lack the ability to have a menu bar icon?
Thanks in advance!
WindowedApplication has a menu property which puts a menu up in the menu bar. Does that work?
I've made menu's already for the application. They are native os x menu's but they are used create contextual menus (file, edit, view...etc...) and are only visible when the application is open. Unless their is a feauture I missed I don't think I can do it with those. I'm looking for the ability to create a menubar icon application similar to twitter, or the default apple spotlight.
