Custom Window Frame in Carbon

by Ed on August 6, 2006

I wrote this example ages ago, but it never saw the light of day. Today I decided to clean it up a bit and put it out there for others to play with. It’s a simple piece of code that shows how simple it is to put up a window with a custom frame that replaces the standard frame you’d see in a Mac OS X Window.

This is written in Carbon, not Cocoa. It’s fairly straightforward in Cocoa as well. I think the same basic principles apply, only there’s more of @ and[] and sometimes $#%!#(.

It uses the HIFramework stuff that’s part of the Apple Developer examples.

Enjoy.
