Summary:  NSButtonCell does not show selected state

Original Submission:  Selected cells in a matrix of NSButtonCells are displayed
the same way as not selected ones.

To test, create a matrix of buttons in Gorm, in radio mode,
and test the interface. the last clicked cell shoud be
displayed differently from the others, but it is not.
In previous versions (one month ago), selected cells
were displayed on a white background.

Again and again people seem to make the assumption that somehow the objects in 
Gorm are "simulated" or "not real".  The objects are the ones from AppKit, or 
any palettes which are linked in, nothing more or less.  They are the real 

I'm not sure what to say here except to reiterate that the behavior of widgets 
in Gorm's Test Interface mode is dictated by the implementation AppKit/gui.   
This means that, however they would behave in a running app is how they will 
behave in Gorm's test mode.

Attached (onoffbuttons.gorm.tgz) is a file which does what you want.  Basically 
I changed the button to "Push On/Off" instead of "Momentary Push" in the button 

This bug is user/developer error.  Invalid.

No, it is not a new behaviour!
Button cells used to show their selected state by changing
their background color. Maybe this should not always
be the case, depending on the type of button, but it
was the way buttons worked before, and it is how they worked
in Openstep 4.1.

With your example, it will not work, because you forget to change the prototype 
button type to NSOnOffButton or NSPushOnPushOffButton which are needed to have 
a radio behavior with a matrix of NSButton (when the prototype isn't set to the 
NSRadioButton type)…
This needed adjustement matches the InterfaceBuilder behavior, even if I'm not 
sure that the right choice… 
Anyway, you are saying this behavior is new, then I will said it is probably 
related to Gorm changes which I'm not aware of.

I still can reproduce it.
I've just upgraded from cvs (both core and gorm).
Attached is a gorm file (just a matrix of buttons
in a window). To reproduce the problem,
just download it in gorm, click on 'test interface',
click on a button. It should highlight and remain 
highlighted (that's what it used to do, and I think
is the correct way to show the 'selected' state of
a button), but it does not, at least here. Does
it highlight in your installation?

I'm unable to reproduce it with 2004/11/07 cvs version… In the case you are 
able to reproduce it with this recent cvs version, let me know.
