Description Ariel Constenla-Haile 2012-12-06 02:18:16 UTC
It is impossible to extend the status bar with extensions, other UI elements like toolbars and menus can be extended in different ways.

There is no way to add a new control to the status bar. For menus and toolbar it is possible to extend them using the Addons.xcu configuration file.

There is an API to implement a component that controls a status bar item, a, but it is impossible to implement in UNO: a StatusbarController needs to access the status bar item it controls, in order to reflect the state of the feature it represents, but there is no way to access the status bar with the current API. The internal StatusbarControllers access directly the underlying VCL StatusBar to reflect status updates, this shows a gap in the API design.
