Declares the most general programmatic interface for objects that manage text.
- macOS 10.0+
NSText draws text for user interface objects, provides text editing capabilities, and controls text attributes such as type size, font, and color.
NSText initialization creates an instance of a concrete subclass, such as
NSText (generically called a text object). In general, you're more likely to use the
NSText subclass, because it extends the interface declared by
NSText and provides much more sophisticated functionality than that declared in
AppKit uses text objects wherever text appears in interface objects. For example, a text object draws the title of a window, the commands in a menu, the title of a button, and the items in a browser. Your app can also create text objects for its own purposes.
