My application is nearly complete. It's a Windows 64 bit app. It uses no extra plugins. I'm at the point where I'm having thoughts of compiling for Linux and Mac too.
It's perfect on Windows. On Linux, I have one tab where controls have gone mad. They overlap and do crazy stuff. it is a train wreck on Mac. It's all of the sudden black background and form elements (container based, and on a tab panel) bleeding through.
Clearly I don't know how to use the transparent settings! It's seems Windows is way more forgiving in that respect, leading me to some bad choices. Also, controls in Linux and Mac can't be spaced as closely as in Windows. Many of them clip each other.
Long story short. I'm seeking threads where this sort of discussion has occurred. I'll be searching here, but if you have any pointers, I could use them.
