The Textfield is a Control subclass that represents Cocoa’s NSTextField.
A string that represents the text field’s text. Equivalent to [self stringValue].
A string representing the “placeholder text”, that is, a text displayed in light shade of grey when the text field contains no text. Equivalent to [[self cell] placeholderString].
Boolean. Whether the text field is allowed to have more than one line. Same as “Uses Single Line Mode” in XCode’s IB.
The Label is a TextField subclass that mimics the presentation of the label in XCode, that is, uneditable, unselectable, borderless and backgroundless.
A subclass of TextField that wraps NSSearchField. Note the slightly different initialization signature: instead of text, the second argument is placeholder because it’s very rare that we initalize a search field with text. We usually do so with a placeholder string.
Boolean. Whether the search action is triggered after each keystroke or when the user presses return. In Cocoa: cell.sendsWholeSearchString.
Boolean. Whether there’s a small delay between the keystroke and the search field action triggering. In Cocoa: cell.sendsSearchStringImmediately.
The Combobox is a TextField subclass that represents Cocoa’s NSComboBox.
A list of strings determining the items that will be present in the combobox’s dropdown.
A boolean telling whether the combobox autocompletes. Equivalent to [self completes].
