I’ve just started using the system tray component for my application on Windows, and that works great. It was easy to program, and works like a dream. Now, I’d like the Mac side to do something similar.
Idea #1: The dock is a bit like the system tray. It’s a handy place for users to find my application’s icon, and a right click shows a menu of things they could do with the application. Is there a way to modifiy this menu in juce so other functionality could be added, as the system tray does on windows, or iTunes does on the mac?
Idea #2: If I can’t change the menu in the dock, how about a global application menu (rather than a menu at the top of each window) that would allow the user to open one of two types of windows, or handle global settings without opening a window.
I’m simply trying to separate out device settings from the main GUI, so the user has quick access to changing sample rate, for instance, without having to open a full GUI window. Any other ideas?
