Hi René,

Revolution doesn't offer support for the various
MacOSX specific 'sizes' of controls. In Java you can
set user properties on JComponents, that the Aqua
lokAndFeel picks up when laying out and rendering your
window - but Rev doesn't offer such a mechanism.
Naturally, if you roll your own controls, you can make
them any size you like and they will look consistent
accross platforms.
