Objective-c – In Objective-C, how to test the object type


I need to test whether the object is of type NSString or UIImageView. How can I accomplish this? Is there some type of "isoftype" method?

Best Solution

If your object is myObject, and you want to test to see if it is an NSString, the code would be:

[myObject isKindOfClass:[NSString class]]

Likewise, if you wanted to test myObject for a UIImageView:

[myObject isKindOfClass:[UIImageView class]]
