Instance Method


Sets a temporary resource value on the URL object.


- (void)setTemporaryResourceValue:(id)value forKey:(NSURLResourceKey)key;



The value to store.


The key where the value should be stored. This key must be unique and must not conflict with any system-defined keys. Reverse-domain-name notation is recommended.


Your app can use a temporary resource value to temporarily store a value for an app-defined resource value key in memory without modifying the actual resource that the URL represents. Once set, you can copy the temporary resource value from the URL object just as you would copy system-defined keys—by calling getResourceValue:forKey:error: or resourceValuesForKeys:error:.

Your app can remove a temporary resource value from the URL object by calling removeCachedResourceValueForKey: or removeAllCachedResourceValues (to remove all temporary values).

This method is applicable only to URLs for file system resources.
