Hodwy,

I'm trying to get a bottom bar painted in the Mac OS X Lion style. Shown in the Apple HIG <developer.apple.com/library/mac/#documentation/userexperience/conceptual/applehiguidelines/Windows/Windows.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/20000961-SW6> (I'm not allowed to post links).

How do I get that suble texture effect that the title/toolbars employ since Lion?

I'm not familiar with Mac OS X programming, but it seems that one gets this style using an NSWindow with the NSTexturedBackgroundWindowMask and then simply paints over the bottom area. SWT does not expose this style bit, but as the title/toolbars are correctly painted, it might use this style anyway? Is the bottom area simply obscured and can be revealed somehow? Or is there some other means to get a natively looking bottom bar?

I would appreciate any information you can provide. Thanks much in advance.

Cheers,
Marco
