Application Indicators

Bug Description

Application Indicators should support having a label similar to the system indicators. This could be set by using a GtkLabel() in the API. It would be useful for giving textual or changing information that isn't always iconic in nature.

It would be nice if this supported Pango markup as well.

This is infact not a Python vs. C thing it is a system indicators vs. app indicators thing. So I'm going to change the bug to reflect the wishlist item that the application indicators should support setting a label on the menu.

Changed in indicator-application:
importance: Undecided → Wishlist
status: New → Confirmed
summary: - python bindings for libappindicator don't provide method to set [custom]
- label
+ App Indicators should be able to set a label on the panel
description: updated
