Chapter 7. Changing Interface Elements > Changing Window Styles

7.4. Changing Window Styles

The Attributes pane of the Info window lets you inspect and customize each element in an application's interface. In the following steps, you'll discover how to change a window's style. Changing styles demonstrates how to find and use the items within the Attributes pane to change the way an interface item acts.

This example walks you through the process of changing the Terminal's window style from its traditional look to the metal theme used by iMovie, iTunes, and other iApps that ship with Mac OS X. As you'll see, it takes just a few steps to find, open, and customize the NIB file for the Terminal's main window.
