Why is mock instance defined as id type?

Postby leonard117 » 05 Sep 2014, 12:48

Hello, I am a noob at objective-c and OCMOck. I see in all usage of ocmock the mock object is defined as id and all mockForClass functions return id. Some of Objective-C engineers prefer more meaningful class type instead of id. Why can it not be the type of OCMockObject*? Is there any special reasons?

Have you tried what happens when you declare the type of the mock to be OCMockObject* in your unit tests?
