Retro button style in OSX cocoa
While developing a 'breadcrumb' or NSPathControl type class, I created some buttons programmatically - initially very quick and dirty; [[NSButton alloc] initWithFrame] and not bothering to set anything.
This may be the first time I've ever done that because I wasn't prepared for what happened:
It makes sense; I haven't set any button type or border style. But I would have thought I'd get the basic push button (the ones you get for OK and Cancel in alerts etc).
This isn't a complaint at all, I'm just bemused to see OSX drawing these retro-looking buttons.
[Update] it's not looking bad...
