Function

CFNotificationCenterPostNotification(_:_:_:_:_:)

Posts a notification for an object.

Declaration

func CFNotificationCenterPostNotification(_ center: CFNotificationCenter!, _ name: CFNotificationName!, _ object: UnsafeRawPointer!, _ userInfo: CFDictionary!, _ deliverImmediately: Bool)

Parameters

center

The notification center to post the notification.

name

The name of the notification to post. This value must not be NULL.

object

The object posting the notification. If NULL, the notification is sent only to observers that are observing all objects. In other words, only observers that registered for the notification with a NULL value for object will receive the notification.

If you want to allow your clients to register for notifications using Cocoa APIs (see NotificationCenter), then object must be a Core Foundation or Cocoa object.

For distributed notifications, object must be a CFString object.

If center is a Darwin notification center, this value is ignored.

userInfo

A dictionary passed to observers. You populate this dictionary with additional information describing the notification. For distributed notifications, the dictionary must contain only property list objects. This value may be NULL.

If center is a Darwin notification center, this value is ignored.

deliverImmediately

If true, the notification is delivered to all observers immediately, even if some observers are in suspended (background) applications and they requested different suspension behavior when registering for the notification. If false, each observer’s requested suspension behavior is respected.

If center is a Darwin notification center, this value is ignored.
