Learning xcode/ibuilder ... newb questions

  • Hi all,

    I've decided to get into mac development and picked up the Hillegass book
    Cocoa Programming for Mac OSX.  I'm just getting started and already running
    into issues given that I'm using leopard with xcode 3 tools.  I notice that
    in Interface Builder there is no "Classes" tab in the .nib document view, so
    I can't create classes and follow along with the text.

    What is the equivalent xcode/ib 3 way of doing things -- to create the
    class,  as Hillegass does on page 20?

    I feel that if I can get over a hurdle or two that I'll be in good shape to
    recognize and deal with other differences.  But I need to be able to get
    started first. :)

    Thanks!

    Kevin

  • Hi Kevin,

    You might want to start with some of Apple's documentation for getting
    started with Cocoa, much of which has been updated for IB3/Xcode 3
    (which were substantial overhauls in at least some areas). http://developer.apple.com/documentation/Cocoa/Conceptual/ObjCTutorial/01In
    troduction/chapter_1_section_1.html

      is a great place to start.

    To answer your question about the "Classes" tab, you can use the
    Identity inspector in IB3 to set a new class name for an object and
    add and remove outlets and actions. Then, go to the File menu and
    choose "Write Class" to create the files.
