Pop-Fade-Out Window-Toggle (Don't know the official name) Question????

sorry for being so unclear with the question here - but i just have no clue how to name what i am trying to find out.

okay, imagine any normal app. if you hit save you get a little save window pop out of the top bar. same goes for publishing in iweb. its shown in a window that pops out of the top bar.

no clue? here you go (ive pasted a screenshot of such a window fading out of the bar):


how do i set a window to open that way? is there some applescript command that says like “show window pop out of bar” :stuck_out_tongue: - but you get the idea?

i guess you can use a normal window (panel) to pop out as ive searched iwebs nib files for any clues. but i only figured that they used a plain old panel which contains this progress bar. ive looked at some cocoa apps that are opensoure and thus i can look at its source - but i have absolutely no idea how to read c++ or whatever language that is :smiley:

any ideas on how to do that?

great thanks

Hi Max,

this is called save panel

Take a look at the sample project in /Developer/Examples/AppleScript Studio/Save Panel/
and the documentation

You can use the [url=http://developer.apple.com/documentation/AppleScript/Reference/StudioReference/sr10_panel_suite/sr_panel.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/20011224-ASKPanelSuite.Commands.Display]display[/url] command to attach a window (or dialog, alert, open panel, save panel, etc.) to another window as a “sheet”.
