An instance of NSDeleteCommand deletes the specified scriptable object or objects (such as words, paragraphs, and so on).


Suppose, for example, a user executes a script that sends the command delete the third rectangle in the first document to the Sketch sample application (located in /Developer/Examples/AppKit). Cocoa creates an NSDeleteCommand object to perform the operation. When the command is executed, it uses the key-value coding mechanism (by invoking removeValueAtIndex:fromPropertyWithKey:) to remove the specified object or objects from their container. See the description for removeValue(at:fromPropertyWithKey:) for related information.

NSDeleteCommand is part of Cocoa’s built-in scripting support. Most applications don’t need to subclass NSDeleteCommand or call its methods.

var keySpecifier: NSScriptObjectSpecifier

Returns a specifier for the object or objects to be deleted.
