I want to make an NSOpenPanel show hidden files.
So far, it looks like it was possible under 10.2 with
but not under 10.3. All the threads I’ve found end there. Has anyone figured this one out?
[[BBEdit shows hidden files/folders but that might be because the capability still exists in Carbon.
EDIT: some people have been accessing _navView and calling setShowsHiddenFiles:YES on it. DO NOT do this. Instead, use this method on NSSavePanel (available in 10.4 and later): [savePanel setShowsHiddenFiles:YES/NO]. See NSSavePanel.h for more information.
cmd-shift-period is a user feature to show/hide the hidden files state.
