CALayer “floating” within NSScrollView?


This Content is from Stack Overflow. Question asked by jeanlain

I’d like to have a CALayer “float” over my scroll view’s documentView. That is, it shouldn’t move during scrolling.

If I add a CALayer to my NSSCrollView‘s layer, the added layer is masked by the clipview: in only shows where the scrollers are.
Adding the layer to the clipview doesn’t work either. It’s masked.

I could add the layer to the document view and compensate the scrolling so that it stays in place, but that would be inelegant.
