Defines 1 Classes
Extends 4 Classes

This package contains some overrides of class MacOSXProgressWidgetView, which prevents the survival of stale/dead processes of the named widget after they have been closed (or rather the window containing them). Currently, this can only be traced if VisualWorks is actualy running on MacOSX, using the look-and-feel on another platform did not have the same effect.

In addition, the original functionality of changing the color of the MacOSX widgets can be used again (thanks to code I borrowed from Travis).
MacOSXLookPolicy switchColorScheme
and choose a base color from the menu. Afterwards all scrollbars and buttons will be adapted to this new base color, sometimes ComboBoxes refuse to do so (at least the one in the top right corner of my RB)!

Have fun!
