Overview

CNBackstageController was a proof of concept and never found a place in a real application. Therefore it's no longer supported and development will be discontinued!

CNBackstageController is an derivative of NSWindowController and a special impelementation to show you the content you would like to see. The goal of CNBackstageController is to provide the developer a slightly different interface for presenting an application.

It mimics the behavior you’ve just seen in Notification Center of Mountain Lion. Instead of showing a normal window and menu bar an application build with CNBackstageController offer you a behind the Finder-like desktop and will be shown with smooth animations. The common use is an application nested as a statusbar item that is not visible in the Dock.

Here is a shot of the included example application:

This screenshot is the result of the horizontal screen split animation effect:

Requirements

CNBackstageController was written using ARC and should run on 10.7 and above. Also you have to add the QuartzCore Framework to your project.
