Chapter 12. Conducting Live Chats and Vi... > Using the iChat Status Menu

Using the iChat Status Menu

If you turn on the iChat Status menu, you can still receive instant messages, view online buddies, and change your status when you quit the iChat program. The iChat Status menu appears as a chat balloon icon on the right side of the menu bar for all applications. When the ballon icon is empty, you're online; when there is a line in the middle, you're away or offline. If you don't see the Status menu, you need to turn it on in the General pane of iChat Preferences. When the Status menu is turned off and you quit iChat, you're logged out of AIM and rendezvous messaging.

Turn On the iChat Status Menu

Click the iChat menu, and then click Preferences.

Click General.

Select the Show Status In Menu Bar check box.

Click the Close button.
