Instance Method

setNilValueForKey:

Invoked by setValue:forKey: when it’s given a nil value for a scalar value (such as an int or float).

Declaration

- (void)setNilValueForKey:(NSString *)key;

Parameters

key

The name of one of the receiver's properties.

Discussion

Subclasses can override this method to handle the request in some other way, such as by substituting 0 or a sentinel value for nil and invoking setValue:forKey: again or setting the variable directly. The default implementation raises an NSInvalidArgumentException.
