CPLAT_MacOS is a modern framework for developing C++ applications that run under MacOS. If you want to develop cross-platform applications, you can upgrade to the CPLAT framework which is the full cross-platform version of the CPLAT_MacOS framework.

Unlike other frameworks that emulate the appearance of the underlying OS, CPLAT_MacOS uses the native UI controls of the underlying platform.

As you can see from the diagram below, this means that under MacOSX, CPLAT_MacOS will use HIViews in composited windows, and regular controls when not using a composited window.


In addition to using the native OS controls, CPLAT_MacOS provides accessors to allow you to get the underlying OS object and make direct calls as necessary to add features that you might want for a particular platform.
