inspector panel/window

Hello,
according Apple's guide: Modern OS X apps often present inspector information within a main window instead of a separate inspector window.
How can I write code to show such inline inspector panel in xamarin.mac?

    Hi @AlexanderJakhua,

    Apple hasn't really built in any specific "inspector" UI widget (which shocks me) but more relies on using the split view and swapping out panels based on the context of the selected item in the UI. For example, displaying text formatting controls if a word is selected in a NSTextView.

    It's an example that I'd planned to write in the future but I'll see if I can't hack together a quick example for you.

    Thanks,

    Kevin
