Bevelbutton / Bevel

  1. 7 months ago

    Why can't I see any difference by changing the Bevel property of a BevelButton ?
    Neither which I select it does not change anything to the button.

    On Mac, there aren't any additional styles anymore. BevelButton is so old Apple recommends not using it.

    Ah well that's what I get for being a Windows dude ;)

  5. I'm using Windows.
    If I select 'No Bevel' the button has no outlines (correct).
    But between Small, Normal, Large I can't see no difference.

    What is ironic..... If you write a macOS app using Swift or ObjC.... most all of those "styles" work

    Ah, that's because Xojo's BevelButton isn't the Cocoa one :)

    Oh I know that... the irony is that Apple says not to use them... when in fact checkbox etc are subclasses of NSButton
