Additional Comments
Expander triangle

Use the metal property to give OS X windows a distinctive appearance suitable for applications such as calculators, oscilliscopes, video camera controllers, and other uses that emulate or control a physical device

Value:

The metal property of a stack is true or false. By default, the metal of a newly created stack is set to false.

Comments:

Before using the metal property, consult Apple's Aqua user-interface guidelines to determine whether the use is appropriate. In general, metal windows should be used to represent physical devices or interfaces to such devices, and should be used only for the application's main window (not for palettes and dialog boxes).

On Mac OS, Unix, and Windows systems, the metal property has no effect.

Note: The setting of this property determines whether the stack'sdecorationsproperty includes "metal".
