Instance Property


A Boolean showing whether the tile is badged with the application’s icon


@property BOOL showsApplicationBadge;


Miniaturized windows include the application badge by default to convey the associated application to the user. In macOS 10.5 and later, application tiles do not support the application badge. A miniaturized window with a custom view does not draw the application badge.

The application icon is positioned automatically in the tile by the NSDockTile object.
