Application Menu Name

  • I am using XCode and Panther.
    I create a new project called "myProject.xcode".
    I open the MainMenu.nib with Interface Builder and I modify the Application
    Menu Name in the menu bar to "myApplication". I mean that I modify the name
    of the first menu, that should report the name of the Application. In other
    words it is the menu that contains the "About myApplication" menu item.
    Well, any time I launch my app, I see that menu name is "myProject".
    The autoenables item of this first menu is not checked.
    More, I tried to change the filename "myProject.xcode" to
    "myApplication.xcode" but this didn't fix the problem.
    In ProjectBuilder my app worked fine.

    What did I forget?

    Best Regards

  • The name of the application is not governed by the name of the project
    that builds it, nor by the title of the application name menu item of
    the main menu as stored in the nib file.
    While you can set a title for the application name menu item in IB, it
    will always be replaced by the "real" name of the application at
    runtime.

    The real name of the application is a Info.plist setting that you set
    in the target that builds the application. Double-click the target, and
    check Info.plist Entries > Simple View > Basic Information >
    Executable.
