Instance Property


Specify the units that can be used in the output.


@property NSByteCountFormatterUnits allowedUnits;


If the value is NSByteCountFormatterUseDefault, the formatter uses platform-appropriate settings; otherwise will only the specified units are used.

NSByteCountFormatterUnits values can be combined using the C OR operator to specify complex formatting strings. The NSByteCountFormatterUseDefault or NSByteCountFormatterUseAll constants can be used with the C AND or the C NOT operators to create custom formats as well.

This is the default value if NSByteCountFormatterUseDefault.
