Description Jeffrey Stedfast 2011-10-10 13:38:04 UTC
We should probably add 2 overloads for CADisplayLink.AddToRunLoop() (and RemoveFromMainLoop):

- an overload that takes an NSString argument (since the constants are NSStrings)

- an overload that takes an NSRunLoopMode enum argument (would probably translate to the appropriate NSString)

Possibly even deprecate the current 'string mode' version for the same reasons we are trying to encourage the NSString variants for other APIs that take string constants.

I added the overload and then documented the values, I am not sure I want to add enumeration values for this yet since users can create their own named runloops.
