Instance Property

rootObject

The object that the receiver (or its parent) makes available to other applications or threads.

Declaration

@property(retain) id rootObject;

Discussion

The object that the receiver (or its parent) makes available to other applications or threads, or nil if there is no root object.

To get a proxy to this object in another application or thread, invoke the rootProxyForConnectionWithRegisteredName:host: class method with the appropriate arguments.

Changing the root object only affects new connection requests and rootProxy messages to established NSConnection objects—applications that have proxies to the old root object can still send messages through it.
