Instance Method

quickLook(with:)

Performs a Quick Look on the content at the location specified by the supplied event.

Declaration

func quickLook(with event: NSEvent)

Parameters

event

An event object containing the location of the Quick Look content.

Discussion

The NSEvent.EventType.quickLook event type supports this method. The only valid properties of an NSEvent.EventType.quickLook event are locationInWindow and modifierFlags. A Quick Look event does not come in through the normal event mechanism; therefore, there is no corresponding event mask for it, nor should you attempt to look for it in a sendEvent(_:) message or with the nextEvent(matching:) methods.

If there are no Quick Look items at the location, call super.

NSResponder declares but doesn’t implement this method.
