I would like write my own application indicator via guide in (in python)

My question - Is there any chance add next to icon indicator entry widget (see below) on top panel?

  window = gtk.Window(gtk.WINDOW_TOPLEVEL)
  vbox = gtk.VBox(False, 0)
  entry = gtk.Entry()
  vbox.pack_start(entry, True, True, 0)

AppIndicators currently do not support this kind of complexity. They might support complex widgets in the future, but for now you can only use simple textual items.
