Sample text

This is a subclass of UIViewController, which is one of those generic controller classes we mentioned earlier. It is part of the UIKit and gives us a bunch of functionality for free. Xcode doesn’t know what our application-specific functionality is going to be, but it does know we’re going to have some, so it has created this class to hold that functionality. Take a look back at Figure 3-1. Our program consists of two buttons and a text label that reflects which button was tapped. We’ll create all three of these elements in Interface Builder.

If you feel like poking through the information here for a few minutes, by all means, go right ahead. When you’re done, close the window, and we’ll proceed. Figure 2-1. indd 14 6/23/09 10:27:34 AM CHAPTER 2: Appeasing the Tiki Gods 15 Note If you have an iPhone or iPod touch connected to your machine, you might see a message when you first launch Xcode asking whether you want to use that device for development. Alternatively, a window titled Organizer, designed to list the devices you’ll be working with, might appear.

Figure 2-6. indd 22 6/23/09 10:27:35 AM CHAPTER 2: Appeasing the Tiki Gods 23 UIKit fulfills the same role in Cocoa Touch as AppKit does in Cocoa. The two frameworks are similar conceptually, but because of differences in the platforms, there are obviously many differences between them. On the other hand, the Foundation framework classes, such as NSString and NSArray, are shared between Cocoa and Cocoa Touch. Scroll through the list of objects in the library until you find one called Label (see Figure 2-7).
