Slider appearance on Macs in a cross platform GUI
1 view (last 30 days)
UICONTROLs appear very differently on PCs and Macs. In particular, sliders have a much larger vertical extend on Macs. Thus, GUIs that I create (in a space-efficient way) on a PC will look horrible on a Mac and closely spaced sliders will overlap and hide each other.
Is there a way to adjust the appearance of the sliders (and possibly other uicontrols) on a Mac?
Or any other ideas to (automatically) adjust the GUI appearance on the OS?

This page gives a whole range of tips for making GUIs that look good on multiple operating systems:
It suggests using characters units for your uicontrols, as long as your GUI is non-resizable. If it is resizable, it recommends using normalized units.
