statusbarpanel

Firefox 4 note

The status bar has been removed. Refer to The add-on bar.

An individual element of a statusbar. This is a special type of button which is drawn differently. Unlike normal buttons, a statusbarpanel can only have a label or an image but not both. This element is often used with a short label or icon to indicate status, for instance whether the user is online or whether there are new messages.

Attributes

crop
Type: one of the values below
If the label of the element is too big to fit in its given space, the text will be cropped on the side specified by the crop attribute. An ellipsis will be used in place of the cropped text. If the box direction is reversed, the cropping is reversed.
start
The text will be cropped on its left side in left-to-right text locales, and the right side in right-to-left locales.
end
The text will be cropped on its right side in left-to-right text locales, and the right side in right-to-left locales.
left
The text will be cropped on its left side.
right
The text will be cropped on its right side.
center
The text will be cropped in the middle, showing both the start and end of the text normally.
none
The text will be not be cropped using an ellipsis. However, the text will simply be cut off if it is too large. The side depends on the CSS text alignment.
Depending on the platform and theme being used, some elements will have set a maximum width so they will always appear cropped. If you wish to use the value none and the displayed text is larger than this maximum width, you may be able to use the max-width CSS property (or the maxwidth attribute) to override this size. For example, for a menuitem in a menu you can add the following CSS rule when you want to use the value none:
menupopup > menuitem, menupopup > menu { max-width: none; }
image
Type: URI
The URI of the image to appear on the element. If this attribute is empty or left out, no image appears. The position of the image is determined by the dir and orient attributes.
label
Type: string
The label that will appear on the element. If this is left out, no text appears. For an editable menuitem element the value of this attribute is copied to the menulist.value property upon user selection of the menuitem.

 

Properties

Style classes

The following classes may be used to style the element. These classes should be used instead of changing the style of the element directly since they will fit more naturally with the user's selected theme.

statusbarpanel-iconic
Use this class to have an image appear on the statusbarpanel. Specify the image using the src attribute. The image will appear instead of the label.

statusbarpanel-iconic-text
Use this class to have an image appear on the statusbarpanel as well as a text label. Specify the image using the src attribute. Specify the text using the label attribute. The image will appear before the label.
statusbarpanel-menu-iconic
Use this class to have an image appear on the statusbarpanel, and also allow a popup menu. Specify the image using the src attribute, and place a menupopup element inside the statusbarpanel. The image will appear instead of the label.
