Description: This project is a translation of the MenuApp AppleScript Studio project to the new AppleScriptObjC framework introduced in Mac OS X 10.6. This project can be used as a template of sorts demonstrating the following features:
  1. An example of the new AppleScriptObjC framework (this supersedes AppleScript Studio in Mac OS X 10.6).
  2. A status menu (similar to a menu extra) with a dynamic submenu.
  3. Options to update the menu title & icon.
  4. Using a timer to animate the menu icon.
  5. Using a view to show a spinning progress indicator in the menu bar (the menu won’t display when this is active though you could add code to respond to a click and display the menu).
If you incorporate some (or all) of the code from this project into your own (which you are free to do), we’d love to hear about it and a little credit would be nice...
