AppCode 2018.2 Help

Creating Imports

In this section:

Introduction

When you start using a class that is not yet imported, or a method from a library that is not yet included, AppCode will suggest to add the corresponding import automatically, or even add the import when you complete code.

The import statement is added to the imports section, but the cursor does not move from the current position, and your current editing session does not suspend. This feature is known as the Import Assistant.

The same possibility applies to the XML files. When you type a tag with an unbound namespace, the import assistant suggests to create a namespace and offers a list of appropriate choices.

Importing missing header files

If you know that a class or function exists in your project or in a standard C/C++/Objective-C library, use it in your code.

To import a header file, follow these steps:

  1. Type a reference to a non-imported class or function.
  2. Press ⌥⏎. If there are multiple choices, select the desired import from the list.
