Instance Method

insertString:atIndex:

Inserts into the receiver the characters of a given string at a given location.

Declaration

- (void)insertString:(NSString *)aString atIndex:(NSUInteger)loc;

Parameters

aString

The string to insert into the receiver. aString must not be nil.

anIndex

The location at which aString is inserted. The location must not exceed the bounds of the receiver.

Discussion

The new characters begin at anIndex and the existing characters from anIndex to the end are shifted by the length of aString.

This method treats the length of the string as a valid index value that returns an empty string.
