A command that moves one or more scriptable objects.
- macOS 10.0+
An instance of
NSMove moves the specified scriptable object or objects; for example, it may move words to a new location in a document or a file to a new directory.
NSMove is part of Cocoa’s built-in scripting support. It works automatically to support the
move AppleScript command through key-value coding. Most applications don’t need to subclass
NSMove or invoke its methods. However, for circumstances where you might choose to subclass this command, see "Modifying a Standard Command" in Script Commands in Cocoa Scripting Guide.
When an instance of
NSMove is executed, it does not make copies of moved objects. It removes objects from the source container or containers, then inserts them into the destination container.
