How can I set the default values for "NSUserDefaults"

Post by Wolfram »

How can I detect if the program is running the first time an I have to initialize the default values?

In this example here I can see how to use the "NSUserDefaults standardUserDefaults", but how can I set the standard value if the Preferences file is generated.

In PB it is simple

Code: Select all

ReadPreferenceString("myParameter", "standardValue")

The NSUserDefaults class has a method called registerDefaults: that allows you to set default values.
Most examples use a plist file where you put the default values, parse that file and use the resulting dictionary for the registerDefaults: method.
