Thanks, Alex. You are correct. It does work, just not in the way I was
looking for. Actually, I have come to expect apps to have an icon on
the right of the menu bar if they are meant to run in the
background…like Skype, GMail notifier, etc. I never knew that Apple
considered that incorrect. I’ve never used a menu from the dock icon
either, but now that I’m checking some of my favorite apps out they
have some pretty useful features in there. Very good to know!
I don’t know if this is a issue better taken up with the wxWidgets
developers, but you may consider (even though the Apple HIG guidelines
frown on it) that developers will want to be able to put icons on the
right side of the menu bar.
