Instance Method

noteFileSystemChanged

Informs the NSWorkspace object that the file system has changed.

Declaration

- (void)noteFileSystemChanged;

Discussion

The NSWorkspace object then gets the status of all the files and directories it is interested in and updates itself appropriately. This method is used by many objects that write or delete files.

The NSDocument and NSSavePanel objects use this method when saving a file. If you create a file directly, you should call noteFileSystemChanged so that the Finder can update the folder if it is open.
