SCT classes

  • Folks,

    I am playing with dynamic class loading... When my test apps starts, I
    am creating a list of all classes (about 1700 for my ultra simple
    example). After a while I am recreating the same list. This time the
    list is longer (about 1800 classes) and contains lasses with "STC"
    prefix - like SCTCarbonMenu, or SCTMenuWindow.

    I have never ever heard about such classes, and it seams Google too.
    Any idea what's going on?

    cheers

    All Mac OS X classes are not documented. There is a lots of private
    Classes that nobody outside Apple never heard about. Those STC classes
    are probably a subset of thoses classes.

    These classes are part of the Spotlight for Help feature, and are
    loaded on demand. Please don’t rely on their behavior or even their
    presence, as they will more likely than not be modified or removed in
    future versions of OS X.
