Get Ready for macOS Mojave

Here are the new protcols: Each SDK is made up of individual libraries usually referred to as “Frameworks”. Many NSView Controller methods for managing and presenting child controllers are likewise renamed for greater conciseness in Swift by removing redundant occurrences of View Controller. Semantic materials are like semantic colors: This eliminates the need for you to explicitly wrap String constants in cases like:. The default typesetter behavior has changed for apps that are compiled with the macOS You use the asset catalog editor to specialize the color definition for the Dark and Increased Contrast modes.

NSDragging Info NSDragging Info APIs that were previously declared as getter methods are now declared as read-only properties, which means they can now be accessed as properties in Swift, without needing the parenthesized function call syntax. Starting in Xcode 9, you use frameqork from Objective-C:.

AppKit Versions | Apple Developer Documentation

API Collection Menus, Cursors, and the Dock Implement menus and cursors to facilitate interactions with your app, and use your app’s Dock tile to convey updated information. In previous releases, it was possible for an NSCollection View Layout to be asked for its collection View Content Size before it received a apppkit message. The changes include formalizing informal protocols; moving enumerations to a common-prefix identifier convention; hoisting Swift declarations into appropriate local namespaces; renaming some ffamework for Swift; replacing functions with computed properties; adding setters for some previously read-only array-valued properties; and similar enhancements that are discussed in these release notes.

Implement menus and cursors to facilitate interactions with your app, and use your app’s Dock tile to convey updated information. Safari and Webkit Safari now automatically creates, autofills, and stores strong passwords when users create new online accounts, and flags reused passwords so users can change them.


Views that depend on drawing in the same backing store as their ancestors or lower-ordered siblings may find that they are instead drawing in separate layers. There is also ClockKit for building watch face Complications. They were used to force the window server to avoid redrawing certain parts of the screen. API Collection Animation Animate your views and other content to create a more engaging experience for users.

This satisfies most needs for visual atomicity without any extra code. Provide a simple interface for displaying and editing text, including support for password fields and secure forms of text entry.

If your app sets its background or fill colors according to one of the following conditions, AppKit now instead adds the corresponding NSVisual Effect View material:. Swift value types provided as items to an NSOutline View instance using methods such as insert Items at: This change was made for types with values that pass through the API to drive things like named asset lookup.

If you don’t specify a value, a default color is used instead. As a result, centering is broken first by pushing the item off center to the left or right as necessary. The child View Controllers property is renamed children in Swift.

The name of an icon for display when the extension appears in the Finder Preview pane and Quick Actions menu. You may not be able to opt out of supporting Dark mode in future versions of macOS. In these cases, because fra,ework app is being rebuilt, you should address these issues at the same time. API Collection Gestures Encapsulate your app’s event-handling logic in gesture recognizers so that you can reuse that code throughout your app.

Introduction to the Frameworks

API Collection Menus, Cursors, and the Dock Implement menus and cursors to facilitate interactions with your app, and use your app’s Dock tile to convey updated information. Other topics on this docs site, such as the Working with XIB Files article discuss these concepts in more detail. API Collection Toolbar Provide a space for controls under a window’s title bar and above your custom fraamework.

If you want the emphasized appkig background style, override interior Background Style on the text field’s cell to return NSView.


This is fixed in macOS To support simpler and framewor concise usage in Swift, some AppKit string enumeration types now import to Swift as type aliases of String, instead of as structures. The scrollable Document Content Text View and scrollable Plain Document Content Text View methods display document contents configured for user documents, like the plain text and rich text modes in TextEdit.

SpriteKit, new in both iOS 7. API Collection Sound, Speech, and Haptics Play frameork and haptic feedback, and incorporate speech recognition and synthesis into your interface. Use the following keys to enable this new behavior: API Collection Animation Animate your views and other content fframework create a more framewrok experience for users. Mac App Store The reimagined Mac App Store arrives with a new look and new editorial content that inspires and informs. If you have an extra-strong need for guaranteed visual atomicity—for example, to ensure atomicity while running the run loop or calling out to client code—use NSAnimation Context instead.

But a lot of the concepts behind the frameworks are similar, and you will find that learning to create applications on one will in many cases translate easily to the other.

For apps linked on macOS Read more at about AppKit. It is not to be confused with our general use of the term “Cocoa” to refer to the entire platform.

Your app’s user interface provides visual, audible, and tactile feedback to the user about what your app is doing. When the window shrinks, or more items are added by the user, the highest priority is to frameworkk the most items visible. When you add custom appkif and color sets to an asset catalog, you can define appearance-sensitive variants to be used when an image is shown in a context with that appearance.
