Instance Method

hostID

Returns the host ID string.

Declaration

- (NSString *)hostID;

Return Value

A string that defines the host application.

Discussion

The host ID string is the application identifier string, for example “com.apple.motion” or “com.apple.FinalCutPro”.

Typically a plug-in should not call this method. Instead it should use one of the specific feature check methods, if available. If no feature check method is available, the plug-in should determine the host application using the methods FxHostCapabilities, FxHostCapabilities, or FxHostCapabilities.
