    keys and allow you to add a new item to the dictionary using a key that you select Human readable keys Structure definitions can provide plain english names for property list keys making it easier to tell what a particular key is used for For example instead of seeing NSJavaPath displayed for that key in an Info plist file you d instead see Java classpaths which makes it a little more clear what exactly the purpose of that key is Choosing from a list of allowed values Some property list keys only allow certain values to be entered for that key or at least there may be some small set of values that are very commonly used for a particular key Structure definitions can provide a list of such values and provide a pop up list and autocompletion when editing such a key For example when editing the CFBundleTypeRoles key of a document type dictionary in an Info plist file the structure definition provides a list of commonly used values for this key which are Editor Viewer Shell and None so that you don t have to remember these values or look them up yourself Additionally for some keys which require non string values the structure definition will display textual representations of these values which are much easier to choose from For example the LSUIPresentationMode key in an Info plist file requires a number to be entered for its value This number corresponds to the SystemUIMode typedef declared in MacApplication h in the Carbon framework Normally you would need to figure out what numeric value to use for a given mode e g 0 gives you the normal UI mode 1 hides the menu bar but not the dock 2 hides both the menu bark and the dock etc and enter that yourself Using a structure definition you will instead see choices such as Normal Content hidden All hidden etc and selecting one of those choices will set the numeric value to the appropriate number behind the scenes Default values Structure definitions can provide default values for particular keys and object types When you create a new object in your property list it will automatically be populated with a sensible default value rather than just being blank and leaving you to guess what type of information you might need to enter Also newly created dictionaries will be automatically populated with keys that are either required or present by default so you don t accidentally forget to include a required key for that dictionary Display type A structure definition can also specify that a particular item or key be displayed as a different type using PlistEdit Pro s formatters the same as you can assign using the View As submenu in the Edit menu For example if a four character code is being stored in a Number object as a 32 bit integer value the structure definition can specify that that value should be display using the OSType formatter This will

    class then determines what classes should be used for its children The children s classes in turn specify what class should be used for their children and so on down the hierarchy When using a structure definition you ll notice that for many items instead of the basic types like Array Boolean etc you will instead see the name of the class that has been assigned to that item by the definition In the example above the Info plist structure definition s root class specifies that the object under the Document types key should be assigned the DocumentTypeArray class The DocumentTypeArray class specifies that all its children should be assigned the DocumentTypeDict class and then the DocumentTypeDict class specifies what should be used for its various child keys The most important piece of information for a class is what basic type should be used for property list objects that are assigned that clas This can be one of the seven basic property list types Array Boolean Data Date Dictionary Number or String as well as a Variant Dictionary type that will be explained a little later The root class is typically a dictionary though it can sometimes be an array
