Instance Method

accessibilityActionDescription:

Returns a localized description of the specified action.

Declaration

- (NSString *)accessibilityActionDescription:(NSAccessibilityActionName)action;

Parameters

action

The action attribute.

Return Value

The description of the specified action, in a localized string.

Discussion

User interface classes must implement this method to return descriptions for all actions returned from accessibilityActionNames. A button, for example, might return the string "press” for the NSAccessibilityPressAction action. Subclasses should invoke the superclass's implementation, if it exists, to obtain the descriptions of any inherited actions.
