Return Value

A localized string to used as the title of the delete-confirmation button.


By default, the delete-confirmation button, which appears on the right side of the cell, has the title of “Delete”. The table view displays this button when the user attempts to delete a row, either by swiping the row or tapping the red minus icon in editing mode. You can implement this method to return an alternative title, which should be localized.
