QTMovieView IB PlugIn on Snow Leopard problem

Recently I found a weird problem with QTMovieView IB Plug-In on Snow Leopard.

If you create an XIB or NIB file on a Snow Leopard and add a QTMovieView to a Window, its movie controller is not displayed even though you check “Show controller” check box.

As you can see, they are exactly same as far as their nature is concerned. Also, whether it is XIB or NIB doesn’t matter.

ADDED : It doesn’t display the movie controller either with IB 3.1.4, the latest IB for Leopard.

    The “behavior controls” have visual feedback within IB only once you assign a movie to the movie view using the Choose… button. This is indeed a difference from previous versions of the IB plug-in but it was a change we felt we had good reasons to make. It is not a “weird problem” but a reasonable change in behavior.

      Hello, Tim.

      Thank you very much for leaving a message.
      Yes. I know that the movie controller is displayed only when a movie is set on Snow Leopard. It was not that I didn’t know about it.
      The thing is that the IB property window has “Show Controller”. Then it looks like that the movie controller is displayed if you check it just like it did with previous version of the OS. If Apple is to change that behaviour, the IB should provide a kind of tooltip or guidance that a movie controller is not displayed when the “Show controller” is checked. However, it doesn’t.

    Probably are they making a new QTKit and QTMovieView with QuickTime X style movie controller? Currently it is still pre-QuickTime-Xish.
