Sample text

The declaration and implementation of a protocol provides a way at runtime and at compile time to determine whether a given object (even when its class is unknown) does implement a known set of functionality. Implementation Lastly, we come to the implementation of an object’s code. The definition of an object’s class and instance methods is placed within an @implementation ... @end block. CHAPTER 2: Object-Oriented Programming 39 Additionally, an object’s instance variables can also be declared within this block in a manner similar to that used within the @interface block seen earlier.

The compiler will helpfully alert you if you declare a statically allocated object rather than a pointer, as shown in Listing 2-2. Listing 2-2. " // Correct. Allocation and Initialization In Objective-C on the Mac and iOS, all objects1 descend from the NSObject class2. This root class implements the basic allocation and initialization methods, which are inherited by all other 1 Well, almost all; you will meet the (very few) exceptions later on. If you’re using “pure” Objective-C without the major frameworks, there is an equivalent (but much older, and not really maintained) Object class defined by the runtime headers.

Figure 2-2 shows how these two paradigms map to one another, with Objective-C’s messaging syntax on top, and the C-style method calls below. Figure 2-2. Messaging (top) vs. method-calling (bottom) Unlike function names in C-style languages, the Objective-C message name is broken up with its arguments interspersed, each preceded by a colon character. It is important to note that no subparts of an Objective-C message name are optional, nor can their order be changed. While some languages implement a concept known as named parameters or keyword parameters, which might look similar, those concepts suggest that certain arguments can be reordered or omitted at runtime and that some arguments might have predefined default values.
