@property (retain) IBOutlet NSMenu *statusMenu; //Created in MainMenu.nib 

//create the status item
NSStatusItem *statusItem = [[NSStatusBar systemStatusBar] statusItemWithLength:24];
[statusItem setHighlightMode:YES];

//create our custom view to be hosted inside the status item
RHStatusItemView *statusView = [[[RHStatusItemView alloc] initWithStatusBarItem:statusItem] autorelease];

[statusItem setView:statusView];

[statusView setToolTip:@"AppName"];
