Following the discussion in https://forum.xojo.com/7804-struggling-with-retina-mac-os-x-menu-icons . How do I apply this to a menu item?
What tools do you have at your disposal?
MBS, no RetinaKit.
As far as I understood, there will be Retina support at the end of 2015.
It looks like you can use NSImageMBS to get a NSImage (which is retina friendly) and use it with NSMenuItemMBS.
I don’t have MBS, but that’s what I gather from the posts there, and the docs:
Where are you stuck?
Some may not wait because they have to release
Some may not wait since end of 2015 is tomorrow. If I had a need of that, I would be thinking Retina support at the start of 2016 (anticipating a possible slip).
I understand. And some may just mention it in an attempt to be helpful.
@Marco: I’m waiting for Retina support. But until then I’ve try to handle this myself.
@Tim Parnell : how do I create a NSMenuItemMBS from a plain vanilla menu item?
I couldn’t wait either! After several attempts I finally looked at how it’s done in Apple’s own tools and then bought it across to Xojo, hence the Retina Kit.
@Christian Schmitz may be the man to answer this question.
It was announced Retina support is for 2016. Most certainly not in 2015r4
Hmm… I thought it was scheduled for 2015. And I assumed it was still going on from Joe’s message here: https://forum.xojo.com/27911-feedback-ranking/p2#p231038
