Constants

NSAcceleratorButton

On pressure-sensitive systems, such as systems with the Force Touch trackpad, an accelerator button sends repeating actions as pressure changes occur. It stops sending actions when the user releases pressure entirely. A media player app, for example, might implement an accelerator button in order to allow a user to adjust the speed of fast forward or rewind with variable pressure. In this case, actions are sent to the app to indicate when pressure on the button has changed. The app would then determine the amount of pressure currently applied, and adjust playback speed accordingly.

NSCircularBezelStyle

A round button with room for a small icon or a single character.

NSDisclosureBezelStyle

A bezel style for use with a disclosure triangle.

NSHelpButtonBezelStyle

A round button with a question mark providing the standard help button look.

The inline bezel style contains a solid round-rect border background. It can be used to create an "unread" indicator in an outline view, or another inline button in a tableview, such as a stop progress button in a download panel. Use text for an unread indicator, and a template image for other buttons.

NSMomentaryChangeButton

When the button is clicked, the alternate (on state) image and alternate title are displayed.

NSMomentaryPushInButton

When the user clicks the button (on state), the button appears illuminated.

NSMultiLevelAcceleratorButton
