Instance Method

setContentBorderThickness:forEdge:

Specifies the thickness of a given border of the window.

Declaration

- (void)setContentBorderThickness:(CGFloat)thickness forEdge:(NSRectEdge)edge;

Parameters

thickness

The thickness for edge, in points.

edge

The border whose thickness to set:

  • NSMaxYEdge: Top border.

  • NSMinYEdge: Bottom border.

Discussion

In a nontextured window calling setContentBorderThickness:forEdge: passing NSMaxYEdge will raise an exception (in a nontextured window, it’s only valid to set the content border thickness of the bottom edge). It is only valid to set the content border thickness of the top edge in a textured window.

Typically, if you call setContentBorderThickness:forEdge:, you should also call setAutorecalculatesContentBorderThickness:NO forEdge:.

The contentBorder does not include the title bar or toolbar, so a textured window that just wants the gradient in the title bar and toolbar should have a thickness of 0 for NSMaxYEdge.
