Instance Property


Determines whether to include the count in the resulting formatted string.


@property BOOL includesCount;


If set to YES and includesUnit is set to NO, no unit is displayed. For example, a value of 723 KB is formatted as 723.

You can get the set this property to YES and the includesUnit to YES individually to get both parts, separately. Note that putting them together yourself via string concatenation may be incorrect for some locales.

The default value is YES.
