Instance Method

func drawBorderAndBackground(withFrame cellFrame: NSRect, in controlView: NSView)

Parameters

cellFrame

A rectangle defining the receiver's frame area.

controlView

The view object that contains this cell (usually an NSControl object).

Discussion

This method invokes the NSCell method imageRect(forBounds:), passing it cellFrame, to calculate the rectangle in which to draw the image. The cell invokes this method before invoking the methods to draw the other menu item components.
