Definition

Overloads

CreateNative(String) CreateNative(String)

Creates an Objective-C NSString from the C# string and returns a pointer to it.

CreateNative(String, Boolean) CreateNative(String, Boolean)

CreateNative(String) CreateNative(String)

Creates an Objective-C NSString from the C# string and returns a pointer to it.

public static IntPtr CreateNative (string str);
static member CreateNative : string -> nativeint

Parameters

str
String String

C# String to wrap

Returns

Pointer to the NSString object, must be released with ReleaseNative.

Remarks

This method creates an Objective-C NSString and returns an IntPtr that points to it. This does not create the managed NSString object that points to it, which is ideal for transient strings that must be passed to Objectiv-C as it is not necessary for Mono's Garbage collector or the MonoTouch/Xamarin.Mac Framework engines to track this object.

The memory associated with this object should be released by calling the ReleaseNative(IntPtr) method.


IntPtr objcString = NSString.CreateNative ("Hello");
// You can pass objcString to any methods that expect an Objective-C NSString pointer
NSString.ReleaseNative (objcString);

CreateNative(String, Boolean) CreateNative(String, Boolean)
