NSAppleScript

The Application Kit adds a method to the Foundation framework’s NSAppleScript class to handle rich text source. This method becomes part of the NSAppleScript class only for those applications that use the Application Kit.

For more information, see NSAppleScript in the Foundation Framework API Reference.

  • Returns the syntax-highlighted source code of the receiver if the receiver has been compiled and its source code is available.

    Declaration

    Swift

    var richTextSource: NSAttributedString? { get }

    Objective-C

    @property(readonly, strong) NSAttributedString *richTextSource

    Discussion

    Returns nil otherwise. It is possible for an instance of NSAppleScript that has been instantiated with initWithContentsOfURL:error: to be a script for which the source code is not available, but is nonetheless executable.

    Availability

    Available in OS X v10.2 and later.
