How can i edit info.plist file present in my cocoa application at runtime.

i want to set LSUIElement key to True or YES at run time.

Thanks in advance.

You really shouldn't. You app might be launching from a read-only location (especially for the current user). Also altering that will break the code signature if you sign your app.

defaults write com.your_app.signature LSUIElement 0

is the command, but I don't know how to achieve this as I don't program in cocoa...yet.

I think....
