Browsing Developer Documentation
Click the Browse button in the navigator selector bar of the documentation organizer.
Click disclosure triangles to open a library and navigate into it.
Click a category or document to display it in the content area.
Use the jump bar in the content area to browse within a document.
Use the browse navigator () in the documentation organizer to explore installed documentation sets and find documents relevant to your development needs.
Apple developer documentation is provided in documentation sets (doc sets) and organized hierarchically into categories by technology. A category can contain any or all documentation resource types—guides, references, and sample code, for example. Each item in the navigation hierarchy is identified by a helpful icon. Some of these icons are as follows:
Library (doc set)
Category or conceptual document
API reference document
Sample code project
Document page or section
You can choose an item at any level of the hierarchy (library, category, document, or section) to view the corresponding page in the content area. Choose a category, for example, to browse a topic page with details about each document in that category, including a content description, change summary, and publication date.
The video shows using the browse navigator to display the document Apple Human Interface Guidelines, then using the jump bar to open to the chapter “Using OS X Technologies.”
