Excerpt of article text...

In the last edition, I talked about some tricks for adapting your interfaces in preparation of Yosemite. For this edition, I'll be extending it further and showing some more tricks that I've used in Backup To Go to make the interface look consistent on both Mavericks and Yosemite.

The great thing about what I'm going to explain, is that with very little work, you can persuade the OS to do cool things for you.

Let's start by taking a look at Backup To Go on Yosemite & Mavericks (Figures 1 and 2).

You can see that most of the layout is identical throughout the different versions of Aqua, so what has changed?

  • SourceList; It's translucent on Yosemite and a gradient on Mavericks.

  • Titlebar; The controls are inline with the window buttons on Yosemite, while on Mavericks they're positioned under the window buttons and window title. (This was discussed in the last edition of xDev Magazine.)
