    all my googling using the word orientation returns iphone results, but i'm referring to programmatic creation of controls being placed at the bottom of the window when y is set to 0. i want the opposite of that. i want the y value to be the offset from the top.

    sample code:
    Code:
    	NSView *superview = [window contentView]; 
    	NSRect frame = NSMakeRect(10, 0, 100, 20); //<-- puts button on bottom
    	NSButton *button = [[NSButton alloc] initWithFrame:frame]; 
    	[button setTitle:@"OK"]; 
    	[superview addSubview:button]; 
    	[button release];	
    
    i know with carbon i had to flip the orientation for cgcontext, is there something similar i can do here? preferably a property i'll only have to set once. thx

    Apparently if you want the whole view flipped the NSView Class Reference has this...
