Well currently GSToolbarView supports custom colors but this
not documented because it may change a bit. Initially I asked on

about possibility to add toolbar colors support in system colors
I didn't obtain a positive answer, that's why I decided to

a separate color list called "System
Hm, well did you get a negative answer? I don't see why you
couldn't add it,
although I think I forgot or didn't see your original proposal.
I don't recall seeing it either ... not that it proves anything ...
it could easily have got on to the list perfectly well and still
been missed in the quantity of email I get.
Sorry, you are right, I didn't post such proposal on the list. I
probably discussed it in a private mail or on irc. I don't remember
who gave me the negative answer (I would say Fred or Alexander or
Gregory… that's pretty vague :-)
I guess that it should use the same colors that MacOS-X does...
perhaps controlColor and controlBackgroundColor?
Mac OS X doesn't use a color provided through NSColor (like

Does a toolbar do anything not already covered by the system colors
implemented for GNUstep ... I thought we had a pretty complete list.
Theoretically controlBackgroundColor would the right choice because
NSToolbar isn't a precisely bounded clickable area like a button, but
a clickable area which varies with displayed content like a table
view or a browser column. However controlBackgroundColor is currently
white in GNUstep and that's the problem because a completely white
toolbar would be ugly.
For this reason I wanted to introduce another color value for toolbar
background which would be available in GNUstep NSColor implementation
For the border color, I may try NSBox color… but I remember to have
tried various shades of gray available with NSColor before deciding
to use a custom gray for the border too.
