Type Method

predicateForObjects(withMetadataKey:allowedValues:)

Returns a predicate that matches objects based on the provided metadata key and an array of target values.

Declaration

class func predicateForObjects(withMetadataKey key: String, allowedValues: [Any]) -> NSPredicate

Parameters

key

The metadata key for the value to be matched. For a list of preset keys, see Metadata Keys. You may also search using custom keys.

allowedValues

An array of valid values. These values must be NSString, NSNumber, or NSDate instances.

Return Value

A predicate that matches objects based on the provided metadata key and an array of target values..

Discussion

Use this convenience method to create a predicate that matches objects based on their metadata. When this predicate is evaluated, it gets the metadata’s value for the provided key. Then the predicate checks that value against the allowedValues array. If the array contains a matching value, the predicate returns true; otherwise, it returns false.

The following sample uses both the convenience method and a predicate format string to create equivalent predicates.

let metadataValues =
    HKQuery.predicateForObjectsWithMetadataKey(HKMetadataKeyFoodType,
                                               allowedValues: ["Pizza", "Tofu"])
 
 
let explicitMetadataKey = NSPredicate(format: "%K.%K IN %@",
                                      HKPredicateKeyPathMetadata, HKMetadataKeyFoodType, ["Pizza", "Tofu"])
