I ran into a weird problem/observation today and need some help with a declare.
In one of my projects, my TextAreas are transparent using this declare in the open method:
[code]Declare Sub setDrawBack Lib “Cocoa” selector “setDrawsBackground:”(id As Integer, b As Boolean)
Declare Function docView Lib “Cocoa” selector “documentView”(id As Integer) As Integer
That works great and looks awesome. Also, the vertical scrollbar goes away/hides and all has a more OSX native look.
I use an iMac with both a mouse and a trackpad. Because the batteries of my trackpad died this morning, I use the mouse only. But now, the scrollbar is the old fashioned way and has a white background. It also stopped the automatic hiding.
As soon as I turn the trackpad back on and restart the App (or run the App on my MBP) all works fine.
Is there any way I can modify the declare so that it always looks as if the trackpad is on?
EDIT: Oh, darn. I now see that it has nothing to do with the declare.
Without trackpad, a TextArea scrollbar doesn’t hide and has the ‘old-fashioned’ -look. With trackpad the scrollbar hides and has the native -look. Guess it’s a Xojo thing.
Is there any way I can force it so it aways looks like with a trackpad?
