The NSTextFieldCell class adds to the text display capabilities of the NSCell class by allowing you to set the color of both the text and its background. You can also specify whether the cell draws its background at all.

All of the methods declared by this class are also declared by the NSTextField class, which uses NSTextFieldCell objects to draw and edit text. These NSTextField cover methods call the corresponding NSTextFieldCell methods.

Placeholder strings, set using PlaceholderString or PlaceholderAttributedString, now appear in the text field cell if the actual string is "". They are drawn in grey on the cell.
Subclass of the NSActionCellMBS class.
