Status icon


Hey, so how do we want to present a status icon to a user? I’ve got the
Dropbox connection and synch working now (still doesn’t backup or restore a
DB, but I’m close), and what I need to do is present some visual cue that
indicates that there is a valid connection, and then what state that
connection might be in. There is no status bar at the bottom, but is that a
valid idea? Or, should I add a new icon that pops open a new dialog or
window that provides details? Right now, I’m leaning toward the second
idea, which allows for some flexibility. However, it’s not generally done
this way. An icon that presents status is generally at the bottom.

Thoughts? I’m going to start with the icon, but am willing do discuss this.
