Enhanced Application question

I’m using enhanced applet to create menubar app and had 2 questions:

  1. Whats the difference between the checkbox run applet in background only and setting the info.plist Application is agent (UIElement) to true?

  2. In the app if I want to call the about window I call current application’s NSApp’s orderFrontStandardAboutPanel:(null) can you suggest how I could call the check for updates… in a similar fashion since I am using sparkle?


The checkbox set the value for LSBackgroundOnly in Info.plist to true. I suspect that’s what you really want.

Something like:

current application's NSApp's delegate()'s checkForUpdates:me
