Class

NSSetCommand

A command that sets one or more attributes or relationships to one or more values.

Declaration

@interface NSSetCommand : NSScriptCommand

Overview

An instance of NSSetCommand sets one or more attributes or relationships to one or more values; for example, it may set the (x, y) coordinates for a window’s position or set the name of a document.

NSSetCommand is part of Cocoa’s built-in scripting support. It works automatically to support the set command through key-value coding. Most applications don’t need to subclass NSSetCommand or call its methods.

NSSetCommand uses available scripting class descriptions to determine whether it should set a value for an attribute (or property), or set a value for all elements (to-many objects). For the latter, it invokes replaceValueAtIndex:inPropertyWithKey:withValue:; for the former, it invokes setValue:forKey: (or, if the receiver overrides takeValue:forKey:, it invokes that method, to support backward binary compatibility.)

For information on working with set commands, see Getting and Setting Properties and Elements in Cocoa Scripting Guide.
