Instance Method

isLocationRequiredToCreate(forKey:)

Returns a Boolean value indicating whether an insertion location must be specified when creating a new object in the specified to-many relationship of the receiver.

Declaration

func isLocationRequiredToCreate(forKey toManyRelationshipKey: String) -> Bool

Parameters

toManyRelationshipKey

The key for the to-many relationship that may require an insertion location.

Return Value

true if an insertion location must be specified; otherwise, false.

Discussion

A script command object that creates a new object in a to-many relationship needs to know whether an explicitly specified insertion location is required. It can get this information from an instance of NSScriptClassDescription. For example, NSMakeCommand uses this method to determine whether or not a specific make AppleScript command must have an at parameter.
