Those interested in how user interface elements specific to NewsFire were accomplished may want to see the following pages:
VisualEffectsInCocoaApps - *For a discussion of some of the latest trends in visual effects. NSTableViewRollover - *How to make a table view highlight a row during mouse over. [ Note - NewsFire uses a WebView with CSS for this effect. ] ITunesStyleGradient - *How to make a ‘source list’ type table view whose selected rows use a gradient effect. NSTableViewBezeledBorder - *How to make the metal bezel view found in NewsFire, iTunes, and other apps. NewsFireClone - *A proposal for a free alternative to NewsFire, incorporating all its effects.
This page has a contentious history that has gone on a long time. Please don’t prove yourself an ass by rekindling flame wars without proof. Let it drop already. - Impartial Cocoadev Member
