Thanks Jarek, I will investigate and see what comes up. It seems like what I need. The status bar message I know about, but that is not what I wanted.

Hi, to write something in the status bar it is:

view.getStatus().setMessage("hello");

You may need a new Runnable class runned by for example
ThreadUtilities.runInBackground that will be given the note and will
sleep and switch it off.
