Instance Method

isCaseInsensitiveLike:

Returns a Boolean value that indicates whether receiver is considered to be “like” a given string when the case of characters in the receiver is ignored.

Declaration

- (BOOL)isCaseInsensitiveLike:(NSString *)object;

Parameters

aString

The string with which to compare the receiver.

Return Value

YES if the receiver is considered to be “like” aString when the case of characters in the receiver is ignored, otherwise NO.

Discussion

Currently, isCaseInsensitiveLike: messages are never sent to any object from within Cocoa itself.

The default implementation for this method provided by NSObject returns NO. NSString also provides an implementation of this method, which returns YES if the receiver matches a pattern described by aString, ignoring the case of the characters in the receiver.
