Instance Method


The index into the array at the specified portion of the key path.


- (NSUInteger)indexForSubKeyPath:(NSString *)subKeyPath;



The key path to a property containing an array or ordered set. For example, when retrieving a message from a set of search results, specify the string messages.

Return Value

The index of the item in the array.


For intents or responses that contain an array of values, use this method to determine which object in the array was specified. For example, if a parameter represented the first object in an array of messages returned by a search, specifying the string messages would return the value 0.
