    Hi,

    New to Mac programming (and Macs in general!). How can I make a tall toolbar such as the one used in iTunes, Aquisition, iPhoto etc?

    Is this done in the Interface Builder or coded? Cannot find a name or reference to it on the net at the moment.

    See photo for the bit I mean.

    Thanks,

    You cant do it in IB (yet, apparently you can with Xcode 3), you use NSToolbar search the documentation for more, it looks fairly straightforward (though I haven't used it myself yet).

    Yes, and no (depending on what the question was really asking, I am not sure). :p

    You need to write the toolbar in code with XCode 2... There are plenty of samples floating around and with the tools.

    You just set a checkbox in IB's inspector window (it is an attribute of the window) to get the 'unified' toolbar + titlebar look, even with XCode 2.
