Subclassing in Interface Builder 3

  • I know that a common question among IB users that are starting to use
    IB 3 after migrating from IB 2 is: how to I subclass something? It was
    so easy in IB 2 with the class browser, and now I have no idea how to
    do it in IB 3?

    In order to answer peoples' inquiries on this, I wrote a blog post on
    my site that explains how to do this:

    Feel free to check it out.

  • Hi List,

    A couple of days ago I had written a request for help with getting IB
    3 to recognize a class I'd created in Xcode and make it available as a
    custom class for my File's Owner. Unfortunately, nobody was able to
    provide much help...

    Except that Kevin's blog suggested typing in the class name to the
    Identity Inspector. Sure enough, even though there was no
    autocompletion as I typed, IB 3 accepted the name and my new IBOutlet
    became available at last to File's Owner!

    So, thanks Kevin! and I hope this helps someone else.

    Best Regards,

    ScottB
