The NSTableCellView class is a reusable container view shown for a particular cell in an NSTableView instance that uses rows for content. The imageView and textField properties are connected in Interface Builder. Additional properties can be added by subclassing NSTableCellView and adding the required properties and connecting them programmatically or in Interface Builder.


The objectValue is used when setting the value of the view cell by the tableView(_:objectValueFor:row:) method in the NSTableViewDataSource. If you use your own custom view cells that are not based on NSTableCellView you should implement this property in order to be able to receive changes to cell values.
