NSTimer userInfo. How object is passing to the selector?

I have this code:

-(void)startRotation:(RDUtilitiesBarRotation)mode {
rotationTimer = [NSTimer scheduledTimerWithTimeInterval:0.1f target:self selector:@selector(rotateSelectedItem:) userInfo:[NSNumber numberWithInt:mode] repeats:YES];
}
-(void)rotateSelectedItem:(NSNumber*)sender {
float currAngle = [selectedItem currentRotation];
if ([sender intValue] == RDUtilitiesBarRotationLeft) {
[selectedItem rotateImage:currAngle - 1];
}
else {
[selectedItem rotateImage:currAngle + 1];
}
}
-(void)stopRotation {
[rotationTimer invalidate];
rotationTimer = nil;
}


The target is start rotating a view while user holds a button. When user releases it the timer will stop.

But I'm giving this:


-[__NSCFTimer intValue]: unrecognized selector sent to instance 0x4ae360


But if I'm paasing in userInfo a NSNumber class, why I'm receiving the timer?

Thanks.

Answer

Your timer action method should look like this

-(void)rotateSelectedItem:(NSTimer*)sender

You can get at the userInfo by doing

NSNumber *userInfo = sender.userInfo;
