NSCoder Application Kit Additions Reference
NXColor, a type that dates from pre-OpenStep versions of NEXTSTEP, was a
struct. Its replacement,
NSColor, is a class. The difficulties of converting from a
struct to a class require a special method like
decodeNXColor method becomes part of the
NSCoder class only for applications that use the Application Kit.
Decoding NXColor Structures
Decodes a color structure from NEXTSTEP Release 3 or earlier and returns an
NSColor object. Returns
nil if the archived color is invalid.
This method does not have a matching method for encoding an
NXColor structure. Encode an
NSColor object instead.
- Available in OS X v10.0 and later.
