Performing Undo and Redo
Performing undo and redo is usually as simple as sending
redo messages to an
NSUndoManager object. The
undo message closes the last open undo group and then applies all the undo operations in that group (recording any undo operations as redo operations instead). The
redo message likewise applies all the redo operations on the top redo group.
undo method is intended for undoing top-level groups, and should not be used for nested undo groups. If any unclosed, nested undo groups are on the stack when
undo is invoked, it raises an exception. To undo nested groups, you must explicitly close the group with an
endUndoGrouping message, then use
undoNestedGroup to undo it. Note also that if you turn off automatic grouping by event with
setGroupsByEvent:, you must explicitly close the current undo group with
endUndoGrouping before invoking either undo method.
