Mac Catalyst + Menu Bar Extras

Anyone come across reliable resources around Menu Bar Extras?

  • I am working on a “no window” menu bar extra
  • I set a custom view with a text field as the menu of the NSStatusItem
  • This custom view has a text field and is not editable :confused:
  • I think it has something do with something being active or the key window


  • Xcode Version 13.3 (13E113)
  • macOS 12.3 (21E230)

Workaround I am using for now: NSPasteboard.general.string(forType: .string) to “pre-fill” (works for my use case)
