DBFILESSearchArg

@interface DBFILESSearchArg : NSObject <DBSerializable, NSCopying>

The SearchArg struct.

This class implements the DBSerializable protocol (serialize and deserialize instance methods), which is required for all Obj-C SDK API route objects.

  • The path in the user’s Dropbox to search. Should probably be a folder.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    @property (readonly, copy, nonatomic) NSString *_Nonnull path;

    Swift

    var path: String { get }
  • The string to search for. The search string is split on spaces into multiple tokens. For file name searching, the last token is used for prefix matching (i.e. bat c matches bat cave but not batman car).

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    @property (readonly, copy, nonatomic) NSString *_Nonnull query;

    Swift

    var query: String { get }
  • The starting index within the search results (used for paging).

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    @property (readonly, nonatomic) NSNumber *_Nonnull start;

    Swift

    var start: NSNumber { get }
  • The maximum number of search results to return.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    @property (readonly, nonatomic) NSNumber *_Nonnull maxResults;

    Swift

    var maxResults: NSNumber { get }
  • The search mode (filename, filename_and_content, or deleted_filename). Note that searching file content is only available for Dropbox Business accounts.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    @property (readonly, nonatomic) DBFILESSearchMode *_Nonnull mode;

    Swift

    var mode: DBFILESSearchMode { get }
  • Full constructor for the struct (exposes all instance variables).

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (nonnull instancetype)initWithPath:(nonnull NSString *)path
                                   query:(nonnull NSString *)query
                                   start:(nullable NSNumber *)start
                              maxResults:(nullable NSNumber *)maxResults
                                    mode:(nullable DBFILESSearchMode *)mode;

    Swift

    init(path: String, query: String, start: NSNumber?, maxResults: NSNumber?, mode: DBFILESSearchMode?)

    Parameters

    path

    The path in the user’s Dropbox to search. Should probably be a folder.

    query

    The string to search for. The search string is split on spaces into multiple tokens. For file name searching, the last token is used for prefix matching (i.e. bat c matches bat cave but not batman car).

    start

    The starting index within the search results (used for paging).

    maxResults

    The maximum number of search results to return.

    mode

    The search mode (filename, filename_and_content, or deleted_filename). Note that searching file content is only available for Dropbox Business accounts.

    Return Value

    An initialized instance.

  • Convenience constructor (exposes only non-nullable instance variables with no default value).

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (nonnull instancetype)initWithPath:(nonnull NSString *)path
                                   query:(nonnull NSString *)query;

    Swift

    init(path: String, query: String)

    Parameters

    path

    The path in the user’s Dropbox to search. Should probably be a folder.

    query

    The string to search for. The search string is split on spaces into multiple tokens. For file name searching, the last token is used for prefix matching (i.e. bat c matches bat cave but not batman car).

    Return Value

    An initialized instance.
