NSResponderMBS.beginGestureWithEvent(e as NSEventMBS)
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
method Cocoa MBS MacBase Plugin 9.6 Yes No No Yes, macOS only No
Function: Informs the receiver that the user has begun a touch gesture.
Notes:
The event will be sent to the view under the touch in the key window.
Available in Mac OS X v10.6 and later.

NSResponderMBS.cancelOperation
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
method Cocoa MBS MacBase Plugin 8.4 Yes No No Yes, macOS only No
Function: Implemented by subclasses to cancel the current operation.
Notes:
This method is bound to the Escape and Command-. (period) keys. The key window first searches the view hierarchy for a view whose key equivalent is Escape or Command-., whichever was entered. If none of these views handles the key equivalent, the window sends a default action message of cancelOperation: to the first responder and from there the message travels up the responder chain.

If no responder in the responder chain implements cancelOperation:, the key window searches the view hierarchy for a view whose key equivalent is Escape (note that this may be redundant if the original key equivalent was Escape). If no such responder is found, then a cancel: action message is sent to the first responder in the responder chain that implements it.

NSResponder declares but does not implement this method.

NSResponderMBS.capitalizeWord
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
method Cocoa MBS MacBase Plugin 8.4 Yes No No Yes, macOS only No
Function: Implemented by subclasses to capitalize the word or words surrounding the insertion point or selection, expanding the selection if necessary.
Notes: If either end of the selection partially covers a word, that entire word is made lowercase. The sender argument is typically the object that invoked this method. NSResponder declares but doesn't implement this method.

Feedback, Comments & Corrections

NSResponderMBS.centerSelectionInVisibleArea
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
method Cocoa MBS MacBase Plugin 8.4 Yes No No Yes, macOS only No
Function: Implemented by subclasses to scroll the selection, whatever it is, inside its visible area.
Notes: NSResponder declares but doesn't implement this method.

Feedback, Comments & Corrections

NSResponderMBS.changeCaseOfLetter
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
method Cocoa MBS MacBase Plugin 8.4 Yes No No Yes, macOS only No
Function: Implemented by subclasses to change the case of a letter or letters in the selection, perhaps by opening a panel with capitalization options or by cycling through possible case combinations.
Notes: NSResponder declares but doesn't implement this method.

Feedback, Comments & Corrections

NSResponderMBS.complete
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
method Cocoa MBS MacBase Plugin 8.4 Yes No No Yes, macOS only No
Function: Implemented by subclasses to complete an operation in progress or a partially constructed element.
Notes: This method can be interpreted, for example, as a request to attempt expansion of a partial word, such as for expanding a glossary shortcut, or to close a graphics item being drawn. NSResponder declares but doesn't implement this method.

NSResponderMBS.Constructor
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
method Cocoa MBS MacBase Plugin 13.1 Yes No No Yes, macOS only No
Function: The private constructor.

Feedback, Comments & Corrections

NSResponderMBS.cursorUpdate(e as NSEventMBS)
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
method Cocoa MBS MacBase Plugin 9.6 Yes No No Yes, macOS only No
Function: Informs the receiver that the mouse cursor has moved into a cursor rectangle.
Notes:
Override this method to set the cursor image. The default implementation uses cursor rectangles, if cursor rectangles are currently valid. If they are not, it calls super to send the message up the responder chain.

If the responder implements this method, but decides not to handle a particular event, it should invoke the superclass implementation of this method.
Available in Mac OS X v10.5 and later.

NSResponderMBS.deleteBackward
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
method Cocoa MBS MacBase Plugin 8.4 Yes No No Yes, macOS only No
Function: Implemented by subclasses to delete the selection, if there is one, or a single element backward from the insertion point (a letter or character in text, for example).
Notes: NSResponder declares but doesn't implement this method.

NSResponderMBS.deleteBackwardByDecomposingPreviousCharacter
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
method Cocoa MBS MacBase Plugin 8.4 Yes No No Yes, macOS only No
Function: Implemented by subclasses to delete the selection, if there is one, or a single character backward from the insertion point.
Notes: If the previous character is canonically decomposable, this method should try to delete only the last character in the grapheme cluster (for example, deleting "a"+ "'" results in "a"). NSResponder declares but does not implement this method.

Function: Displays context-sensitive help for the receiver if such exists; otherwise passes this message to the next responder.
Notes: NSWindow invokes this method automatically when the user clicks for help—while processing theEvent. Subclasses need not override this method, and application code shouldn't directly invoke it.
