Misc questions

  • 1.  Does Apple print any official documents these days?  (like Inside
    Macintosh volumes in the past)
    I know I have the developer pdf's and know that there are some
    authored books but just curious if there's an official printed versions.

    2.  Interface builder - (I'm using the older one that runs on
    Tiger).  Is there an easy way to check relationships?  I can see the
    connection and actions but there doesn't seem to be an easy way to
    check to see how objects are linked (or to confirm the links) without
    having to click on every object and permutation/

    3. Cocoa third party class sources?  I've found a few things here and
    there but nothing like Codewarrior PowerPlant listings.  Are there any?

    Thanks,
    Scott
  • Re #2, in the main object window there are some tiny icons on the right side. One of them gives the default view, and the other one shows a tree view where all the objects and subobjects can be viewed at once along with their interrelationships. This is also useful for diagnosing the yellow "!" icon.

  • Thanks.  It bit obtuse but I see that clicking the ramps (in/outs?)
    shows the graphical links between the classes.
    I take it there's no way to get a text of all the links.

    Thanks,
    Scott

    Nope.  It isn't practical.  Every 4-6 weeks we push new content to
    the web and for download. Many times that includes bug fixes and
    enhancements to existing books.  They'd be out of date almost
    immediately.

    Sure, there are third party frameworks and classes out there.. but
    not a centralized collection or tracking site that I'm aware of
    anymore (sigh.. Softrak)

    Search for Objective-C on Google and you should find some.
