Instance Method


Asynchronously opens a file in place, if doing so is possible, returning an NSProgress object.


- (NSProgress *)loadInPlaceFileRepresentationForTypeIdentifier:(NSString *)typeIdentifier completionHandler:(void (^)(NSURL *url, BOOL isInPlace, NSError *error))completionHandler;


The system sets the isInPlace parameter to YES if the system successfully opened the file in place, or NO if it made a local copy. In either case, you must access the returned NSURL using an NSFileCoordinator object.

If the system created a local copy of a file, it will be automatically deleted after your file coordinator relinquishes its read access to the file.
