Is this possible at all?
Try the following, which I've used for other utilities which don't really require a place in the Dock (eg. HardwareGrowler)...
- Add OmniDazzle to your account's login items using the Accounts prefpane, and mark it to start hidden.
- Add a 'LSUIElement' key to its 'Info.plist' file as follows, substituting for the parent directory of the application in if you installed it anywhere other than /Applications:
defaults write /Applications/OmniDazzle.app/Contents/Info LSUIElement true
- Restart OmniDazzle and close its config window (or hide the app).
To show the icon in the dock again...
- Remove the key:
defaults delete /Applications/OmniDazzle.app/Contents/Info LSUIElement
- Quit OmniDazzle from its status bar icon, and restart it.
