Above the Navigator in the OS X version of Xojo, there is an elongated TextField type control with a magnifying glass inside it - which is used as a search control.
Does anyone know if there is a 3rd party class which provides this kind of control, as I would like to have one in my app but there is not a control for this in the IDE.
Thank you all in advance.
MacOSLib provides access to the native Cocoa search control for OS X. This should cover your needs.
For the Mac, there is one in MacOSLib. (As Eduardo beats me to it.) Look for NSSearchField.
Also, it’s important to point out that MacOSLib is not really “third-party” in that it’s not creating a custom solution. It just gives you easy access to native functions and controls in the OS X toolbox so there is never a worry about stuff needing updates for something like Retina display. There is, however, a need to make sure that the function or control is available in your target MacOS version.
Thank you both so much!
Any OS X software which I make will be Mavericks only.
