Cocoa (Obj-C flavor)


Original Dicksman
I couldn't find any Cocoa threads, so there is one now!

I've written a few C++ programs for Windows and know the basics of Win32 API's. Now I'm working on my first Cocoa app in Objective-C and C++. Win32 API have Dialog classes for temporary/auxillery windows as children of the the main app's window, in which you can add buttons, menu's, textfields, etc... I'm trying to figure out Cocoa's equivalent. I have a basic understanding of the NSAlert class, but they don't seem to allow anything other than button inputs. Does anyone know how to spawn a child window with an NSTextField and "done" button, that closes after "done" is pressed and stores the user's input into NSTextField into a local var by the calling method?
