What else would he be talking about? That's the only checkbox that, well, hides the window when it's deactivated.
Also, I found the lines in the NIB's files that determine the class and the style mask. Let the automation begin.

Just so you're aware, if I make a tool like this, it will only work on certain NIBs that meet the requirements and don't have anything too fancy going on.

Okay Cocoa ninjas, here's a question:

Once a window is set as NSPanel class, it's always on top (which is annoying). I read in the docs that you can setFloatingPanel:NO to make it behave like a normal window, not just "hide on deactivate" ...how do I do this?

Also, I'm currently altering Xbench to make it HUD:
@Cabron that GUI kit is ridiculously nice, it's really going to come in handy with this mod. I can't believe it's res indepedent!

But since it's not kosher to make your primary window HUD, I start to see a strange behavior. For example, when I launch my Xbench HUD, the TestResults.nib pops up with the MainMenu.nib ("visible on launch" is not ticked). But when I turn HUD off, only the MainMenu.nib launches on start (which is what should really happen). Try it yourself, it's really frustrating. I suspect that that it's looking for an NSWindow class and isn't finding one. Any ideas for a work around?

I found this: made by gnome
Posted Image

It requires SIMBL to install, because this doesn't modify the NIB files of the application--it edits the code. (Safely, I promise.)

Please report any bugs.

Download: http://www.gnomepi.c...andom/AUHUD.zip

Install Instructions:
1. Install SIMBL, if you haven't already.
2. Drop the downloaded file into /Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins/, creating that folder if it does not already exist.

Note: If you try to compress a file by right-clicking in the Finder, you won't get HUD windows. That's because the Finder, a Carbon program, is responsible for that compression *. Decompression will work, however.

These are all great, and the installer works wonders. I almost have all of them working, except I can't figure out why the log out screen, and quicktime mods won't take. They didn't work from the installer and I tried a few times manually doing it so I know the files are replaced, but it won't switch to HUD.

Any ideas what is causing this? I'd love to get these last two working. Its weird that shutdown and restart would show HUD but log off, won't seem to take no matter what.

EDIT: Alright, figured out the logout issue, the file does not go in the English.Iproj folder like the others ;)

EDIT2: Yep same thing on the other one...LOL Now I can sleep :P

Thanks to everyone who worked on this, this is really a great mod!

OK I realized if I don't put it in the english.iproj file the buttons don't match the other windows. So why is it just the Logout Screen HUD that is giving me trouble. :rolleyes:

What with the new version of transmission the current HUD does not work. When I have time I'll update it but don't count on it any time soon.

Did anyone else have problems getting the logout window to change to HUD?

I've got the Shutdown and Restart HUD, but the Logout won't change after replacing the English.Iproj folder located in loginwindow.

Click the title of the window in Interface Builder and in the Attribute Inspector (first tab), under behavior check the "Hide on Deactivate" box.

If Interface Builder says ".. cannot open nib, because it's compiled...", is there any way to HUD the application anyways?

I would really like to HUD "ForkLift" - my Finder replacement :P

Oh, and could someone please upload the iCal HUD mod again, the link doesn't work.

Thanks :)
