Instance Method


Returns the bounding rectangle for the glyphs in the specified text container.


iOS, Mac Catalyst, tvOS
func usedRect(for container: NSTextContainer) -> CGRect
func usedRect(for container: NSTextContainer) -> NSRect


Returns the text container's currently used area, which determines the size that the view would need to be in order to display all the glyphs that are currently laid out in the container. This causes neither glyph generation nor layout.

Used rectangles are always in container coordinates.
