I am trying to create a NSTextField in a blank NSView but am having trouble. I do not want to use IB to do this. So, this means I need to figure out the code to creating and displaying the NSTextField. I have tried the following:
NSTextField *thetestfield; //in header file
int x; x = 6478; thetextfield = [[NSTextField alloc] initWithFrame:NSMakeRect(10,10,20,80)]; [thetextfield setIntValue:x]; [theWindow display];
this does not work. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks
You need to add it to the window’s view hierarchy in order to see it. something on the lines of [[theWindow contentView] addSubview:thetextfield]; should be enough to get you started.
