NAME ^

Gtk2::AppIndicator - Perl extension for libappindicator

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Gtk2 '-init';
  use Gtk2::AppIndicator;
  use Cwd;

  # Initialize the status icon. an_icon_name must be present 
  # at the icon theme path location, with an image extension like
  # .jpg, .png or .svg, etc.
  $status_icon=Gtk2::AppIndicator->new("AnAppName","an_icon_name");
 
  # If you want to be in control over your icon location, you 
  # can set it manually. It must be an absolute path, in order
  # to work. 
  my $absolute_current_working_directory=getcwd();
  my $acwd=$absolute_current_working_directory;
  $status_icon->set_icon_theme_path($acwd);

  # Optionally set different icons 
  # $status_icon->set_icon_name_active("an_icon_name");
  # $status_icon->set_icon_name_attention("an_other_icon_name");
  # $status_icon->set_icon_name_passive("an_other_icon_name");
 
  # Add a menu to the indicator
  my $menu=Gtk2::Menu->new();
  my $showcp=Gtk2::CheckMenuItem->new_with_mnemonic("_Show My App");
  $showcp->set_active(1);
  $showcp->signal_connect("toggled",sub { hide_show($window,$showcp); });
  my $quit=Gtk2::MenuItem->new_with_mnemonic("_Quit");
  $quit->signal_connect("activate",sub { Gtk->main_quit(); });
  
  $menu->append($showcp);
  $menu->append(Gtk2::SeparatorMenuItem->new());
  $menu->append($quit);
  $status_icon->set_menu($menu);

  # Show our icon and set the state
  $menu->show_all();
  $status_icon->set_active();
