NSTextTab Mac OS X 10.0

This class is used by the class NSParagraphStyle to encapsulate information about a tab stop, such as alignment (left, right, center, etc.) and location of the stop relative to the alignment edge. To create a text tab object, use the method initWithType:location:. For more information on Cocoa's text handling infrastructure, see Chapter 5.
