I need a bordered window for my app. But when I am using either B_BORDERED_WINDOW or B_BORDERED_WINDOW_LOOK and B_NORMAL_WINDOW_FEEL I always have a borderless window.
I was expecting something like a B_TITLED_WINDOW but without the Title gadget.
Maybe this is a wrong understanding on my side.
Try “B_MODAL_WINDOW_LOOK, B_NORMAL_WINDOW_FEEL”.
Think that’s probably what you want – though I’m not sure why it’s the answer… (:-/)
Your proposal is exactly the rendering I want. But I do not want a modal window.
Normally B_BORDERED_WINDOW should provide exactly what I need.
I just do not know why this is not working.
The “bordered” look has just an 1px border around the contents. The “modal” look has a thick border and no title bar. Don’t worry about the name: it is only the look (and you set a “normal” feel), so the window will not be modal, it will just look like a modal window.
As said in the be book: https://www.haiku-os.org/legacy-docs/bebook/BWindow.html#BWindow_window_look
The bordered look has a “thin” border. The modal look has a “thick” border.
I’m also not sure why the constants are named that way, but it’s one of the many quirks we inherit from BeOS.
