BCStatusItem is a view & NSStatusItem category to let you easily expand the functionality of NSStatusItem. One issue with NSStatusItem is getting it's location/frame on the screen. You can do this if it has a custom view, so one of the features of BCStatusItem is to by default have a custom view that behaves like NSStatusItem does by default.

Current features

  • Adds - [NSStatusItem frame] via custom view's window frame (lets you easily position a window near it)
  • Makes it easy to enable drag & drop on the status item


  • Title drawing
  • Action/doubleAction support
  • Possible convenient way of adding an 'accessory view'
  • See issues for more
