Xcode's documentation is built right into the app itself. Through a simple menu command, you can open the documentation and learn about any Xcode, Swift, or API-related topic quickly and easily. See how it works in this video.
- [Instructor] Let's say you're working…on a project in Xcode…and you notice a class you're unfamiliar with…and you want to know maybe it's other methods…that you can implement and how to use it more effectively.…For example, my main class view controller…is a subclass of NSViewController.…Well, what can I learn about NSViewController?…Xcode actually provides excellent documentation…that's easy to access.…You can grab it through the menu at help,…developer documentation, or through the keyboard shortcut,…shift command zero.…
When you open up the documentation,…you can then search for the appropriate class.…So let's look for NSViewController.…As I start typing it out you'll see that it shows up…in the menu here.…I'll click on that and I'm instantly taken…to the NSViewController documentation…where I can read about the view life cycle…and how the view controller class works.…On the left side you're also going…to see the app frameworks organized…so if you have any questions about those,…you can expand them and see the documentation and guides…
