    Is it possible to have an NSCollectionView with a transparent background?

    I've had a look and a play, but I can't get it to work :(

    Have you tried setBackgroundColors: with an [NSColor clearColor]? Have you tried subclassing and overriding isOpaque?

    Found the problem. It's embedded in a NSScrollView, and while the NSCollectionView background was clear, the NSScrollView background wasn't!

    Thanks for your help!
