Re: Mac OS X native menubar

Thanx for your responses. Actually such an api wouldn't be bad at all. If some one wants to write one, be free. But I think the first thing we got to do is get these menus up there. Afterwards we can discuss the further possibilities.

Hi guys

Now that Anders is not actively coding on the port anymore,  I guess
nobody really is. Well I would love a nice and complete gtk port on the mac so I'm trying to contribute where I can. The next thing I want to give a try is the menubar. I'm aware of the long discussion about this particular case but as far as I know nobody came with a final solution. It was more like a discussion about creating a special api or not. Well in my opinion the first menubar should be mapped to the top. This way a
lot of gtk apps would compile out of the box. If it doesn't work he
developer or the porter needs a way to fix the menubar the way it should be.
That's just wrong.
Gtk+ must be able to solve the case when you have multiple menubars.
Evolution for instance has at least two: one in the shell
and one in the composer.

Well, those are in separate toplevel windows, so it's not really a problem in that way.

However, in most cases you will want to tweak the menu layout anyway to follow the standard way of OSX applications, so if there is a small additional API for handling the top menu in OSX, that wouldn't be that bad.
