Text fields are the primary mechanism for displaying and collecting text in an OS X application. This makes them one of the most common, versatile UI components in Cocoa. In this chapter, we’ll be discussing the three main components for working with text:
- Labels – For displaying text.
- Text Fields – For collecting small amounts of unformatted text input.
- Text Views – For managing large amounts of formatted text.
We’ll also be discussing Apple’s design guidelines for text fields, which will help you create professional, consistent user interfaces. By the end of this chapter, you should be able to meet all of your app’s text needs.
Sorry, this is the end of the preview. To read the rest of this chapter, you’ll need to purchase Ry’s Cocoa Tutorial.
