Instance Method

tableView(_:sortDescriptorsDidChange:)

Called by aTableView to indicate that sorting may need to be done.

Declaration

optional func tableView(_ tableView: NSTableView, sortDescriptorsDidChange oldDescriptors: [NSSortDescriptor])

Parameters

aTableView

The table view that sent the message.

oldDescriptors

An array that contains the previous descriptors.

Discussion

The data source typically sorts and reloads the data, and adjusts the selections accordingly. If you need to know the current sort descriptors and the data source doesn’t manage them itself, you can get the current sort descriptors by sending aTableView a sortDescriptors message.
