Exploring the Foundation Framework in iPhone- NS Notification Center

NSNotification Center

An NSNotificationCenter object (or simply, notification center) provides a mechanism for broadcasting information within a program. An NSNotificationCenter object is essentially a notification dispatch table.

Inclined to build a profession as IOS Developer? Then here is the blog post on iPhone Development Certification Training.

OBJECTS register with a notification center to receive notifications (NSNotification objects) using the addObserver:selector:name:object: or addObserverForName:object:queue:usingBlock: methods. Each invocation of this method specifies a set of notifications. Therefore, objects may register as observers of different notification sets by calling these methods several times.

Each running Cocoa program has a default notification center. You typically don’t create your own. An NSNotificationCenter object can deliver notifications only within a single program. If you want to post a notification to other processes or receive notifications from other processes, use an instance of NSDistributedNotificationCenter.

         Initially create the file name (b8 notification view controller)

B8 notification view controller .h:

# import  
#import     “second .h”
@interface b8 notification view controller: UIviewController

B8 notification view controller .m:

-(void)viewDid load
[[NSNotificationCenter defaultCenter] add observe : selfSelector:@ selector :@ selector (addition) name :@ “ AlgebraNotification” Object
: nil];
[[NSNotificationCenter  defaultCenter ]
                                              addobserver : self
                                              Selector :@ selector (subtraction)
                                                  name :@ “algebra notification”
                                                   Object  : nil];
[[NSNotificationCenter defaultCenter
          PostNotificationName: @ “AlgebraNotification”
                                                             Object: nil];
     [ Super  viewDidLoad];
-(void) addition
NSLog(@ “ the addition is called”)
-(void) Subtraction
Ns log(@ “the subtraction is called);

Output:– the addition is called

                  The subtraction is called
