As the user moves over your application menus, a short
description of each menu item should appear in the
statusbar. Gnome makes this very easy; just call the gnome_app_install_menu_hints() (Figure 11) after
you create your menus and statusbar. The GnomeUIInfo struct passed to this
function must have its
widget fields filled in by one of the
menu-creation functions, and the GnomeApp must have a GnomeAppBar or GtkStatusbar in its statusbar slot.
