Initializer

init(_:withObjCType:)

Creates a value object containing the specified value, interpreted with the specified Objective-C type.

Declaration

init(_ value: UnsafeRawPointer, withObjCType type: UnsafePointer<Int8>)

Parameters

value

A pointer to data to be stored in the new value object.

type

The Objective-C type of value, as provided by the @encode() compiler directive. Do not hard-code this parameter as a C string.

Return Value

Discussion

This method has the same effect as valueWithBytes:objCType: and may be deprecated in a future release. You should use valueWithBytes:objCType: instead.
