Instance Property

viewsNeedDisplay

A Boolean value that indicates whether any of the window’s views need to be displayed.

Declaration

var viewsNeedDisplay: Bool { get set }

Discussion

The value of this property is true when any of the window’s views need to be displayed; otherwise, false. You should rarely need to set this property; the NSView method needsDisplay and similar methods set it automatically.
