iOS NSUserDefaults Getting Default Values


Example

To get a value in NSUserDefaults you can use the following functions:

Swift

arrayForKey(_:)
boolForKey(_:)
dataForKey(_:)
dictionaryForKey(_:)
floatForKey(_:)
integerForKey(_:)
objectForKey(_:)
stringArrayForKey(_:)
stringForKey(_:)
doubleForKey(_:)
URLForKey(_:)

Objective-C

-(nullable NSArray *)arrayForKey:(nonnull NSString *)defaultName;
-(BOOL)boolForKey:(nonnull NSString *)defaultName;
-(nullable NSData *)dataForKey:(nonnull NSString *)defaultName;
-(nullable NSDictionary<NSString *, id> *)dictionaryForKey:(nonnull NSString *)defaultName;
-(float)floatForKey:(nonnull NSString *)defaultName;
-(NSInteger)integerForKey:(nonnull NSString *)defaultName;
-(nullable id)objectForKey:(nonnull NSString *)key;
-(nullable NSArray<NSString *> *)stringArrayForKey:(nonnull NSString *)defaultName;
-(nullable NSString *)stringForKey:(nonnull NSString *)defaultName;
-(double)doubleForKey:(nonnull NSString *)defaultName;
-(nullable NSURL *)URLForKey:(nonnull NSString *)defaultName;

Example usage would be:

Swift

let homeCountry = NSUserDefaults.standardUserDefaults().stringForKey("HomeCountry")

Objective-C

NSString *homeCountry = [[NSUserDefaults standardUserDefaults] stringForKey:@"HomeCountry"];
