Custom Views (NSTextField) in NSToolbar Items?

    I would like to get an NSTextField into an NSToolbar, sort of like the Address Bar in Safari. How could I do this? (I've considering layering a view over it but that defeats the purpose of having a customisable toolbar)

    I know that there's the Search Field item, but thats already used for another function.

    EDIT: Never mind, I found some Apple sample code.

    For people who stumble on this topic looking for answers, you need to look at the setView: method in NSToolbarItem.

    Well now I'm thoroughly pissed. I spent hours finding and writing code and this morning I find a way to drag views into the toolbar using IB. :/
