Discussion

The NSEventTypeQuickLook event type supports this method. The only valid properties of an NSEventTypeQuickLook 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 nextEventMatchingMask: methods.

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

NSResponder declares but doesn’t implement this method.
