@property(readonly, strong) NSPathComponentCell *clickedPathComponentCell;



The new path value to display.


When setting, an array of NSPathComponentCell objects is automatically set, based on the path in url. The type of NSPathComponentCell objects created can be controlled by subclassing NSPathCell and overriding pathComponentCellClass.

If url is a file URL (returns YES from fileURL), the images are automatically filled with file icons, if the path exists. The URL value itself is stored in the objectValue property of the cell.
