Instance Method

method(for:)

Locates and returns the address of the receiver’s implementation of a method so it can be called as a function.

Declaration

func method(for aSelector: Selector!) -> IMP!

Parameters

aSelector

A Selector that identifies the method for which to return the implementation address. The selector must be a valid and non-NULL. If in doubt, use the responds(to:) method to check before passing the selector to method(for:).

Return Value

The address of the receiver’s implementation of the aSelector.

Discussion

If the receiver is an instance, aSelector should refer to an instance method; if the receiver is a class, it should refer to a class method.
