Instance Property


A Boolean that indicates if the ruler view's coordinate system is flipped.


var isFlipped: Bool { get }


true if the receiver’s coordinate system is flipped, false otherwise.

A vertical ruler takes into account whether the coordinate system of the NSScrollView’s document view—not the receiver’s client view—is flipped. A horizontal ruler is always flipped.
