alert dialog icons

Postby Lisa » Sun Nov 06, 2011 9:38 am

I saw in the SC 4.7 docs that support was added for the note, caution and stop variants of alert dialogs. But I just recently noticed that there now doesn't seem to be a way to get the application icon in an alert message, and the caution icon is no longer badged with the application icon. :(

Shouldn't omitting the note|caution|stop keyword produce a dialog with the application icon? Am I missing something, or is this an oversight?

More of a workaround. We ended up drawing these ourselves when we came to the conclusion that the rumors that Apple would address the broken API for the badged icons in carbon were false. Because of this we don't get the app's badges.

Ugh. I was afraid it was an Apple-induced situation. It's a step away from interface guidelines, and SC doesn't usually go in that direction. Anyway, thanks for responding.
