Global Variable


An identifier for a transform that converts characters to Unicode names.


const NSStringTransform NSStringTransformToUnicodeName;


For example, the string “🐶🐮” transforms to "\N{DOG FACE}\N{COW FACE}" .

Passing this constant to the applyTransform:reverse:range:updatedRange: method is equivalent to passing kCFStringTransformToUnicodeName to CFStringTransform.
