Instance Property


A placeholder object for the asset collection that the change request creates.


@property(nonatomic, strong, readonly) PHObjectPlaceholder *placeholderForCreatedAssetCollection;


Use this property if you need to reference the asset collection created by a change request within the same change block. For example, the following code, when included in a photo library change block, creates an asset collection and then adds it to a collection list:

PHAssetChangeRequest *createAlbumRequest = [PHAssetCollectionChangeRequest creationRequestForAssetCollectionWithTitle:@"New Album"];
PHObjectPlaceholder *albumPlaceholder = createAlbumRequest.placeholderForCreatedAssetCollection;
PHCollectionListChangeRequest *folderChangeRequest =
    [PHCollectionListChangeRequest changeRequestForCollectionList:folder];
[folderChangeRequest addChildCollections:@[ albumPlaceholder ]];

For details on change blocks, see PHPhotoLibrary.
