Parameters
size

The size of the image, measured in points.

depth

The bit depth of the image. Specify 0 if you want the image to be the same depth as the deepest screen on the current system.

flag

YES if the receiver should use a separate offscreen window to store the image; otherwise, NO if the receiver should use a shared window.

alpha

initWithWindow:rect:

Returns an NSCachedImageRep object initialized for drawing in the specified window. (Deprecated in OS X v10.6.)

- (id)initWithWindow:(NSWindow *)aWindow rect:(NSRect)aRect
Parameters
aWindow

The window (typically offscreen) in which the image is to be rendered. The window is retained by the receiver.

aRect

The position and size of the image in the specified window. This rectangle should be specified in the base coordinate system of the window.
