StatusLine in menu bar

With a simple NetBeans startup parameter the StatusLine can be placed in the menu bar: add the property


to the NetBeans configuration file installRoot/etc/netbeans.conf:

# Options used by NetBeans launcher by default, can be overridden by explicit
# command line switches:
netbeans_default_options="-J-client -J-Xss2m -J-Xms32m -J-Xmx1500m -J-XX:PermSize=32m -J-XX:MaxPermSize=400m -J-Dapple.laf.useScreenMenuBar=true -J-Dsun.java2d.noddraw=true -J-Dnetbeans.winsys.statusLine.in.menuBar=true"

Don’t forget to add -J-D before the property name!
