#14042 closed enhancement (fixed)

wxGridCellTextEditor unusable in wxOSX/Cocoa

wxGrid cell text editors look rather bad under OS X. Just run the grid sample and type in any cell: the editor is too large, much larger than the grid cell. Moreover it has that blue line that surrounds the active control that makes it look strange and even larger. This is not what a spreadsheet user would expect. It would be nice to avoid at least the blue highlight.

Moreover in the Cocoa port the editor shows something like a grey scrollbar at the right of the control, even if it is not multiline. It would be nice to avoid it too.

This is a great enhancement, thank you!

The Carbon version works perfectly.
The Cocoa one does not have the focus ring any more but it still has the grey rectangle (a scroll bar?) at the right and the border is slightly different from the one of the other cells.

Anyway, this is definitely a great enhancement.

Apparently this is bad enough to make wxGrid unusable under wxOSX/Cocoa in practice.
