Instance Method


Returns the object at the specified index.


- (ObjectType)objectAtIndexedSubscript:(NSUInteger)idx;



An index within the bounds of the array.

Return Value

The object located at index.


This method has the same behavior as the objectAtIndex: method.

If index is beyond the end of the array (that is, if index is greater than or equal to the value returned by count), an NSRangeException is raised.

You shouldn’t need to call this method directly. Instead, this method is called when accessing an object by index using subscripting.

id value = array[3]; // equivalent to [array objectAtIndex:3]
