Default Chapter 7 RootViewController didSelectRowAtIndexPath: not implemented

Unless I am missing something, didSelectRowAtIndexPath: is never implemented in RootViewController. So, at the bottom of page 179 when the book states, "You should also be able to select tasks in the Tasks screen and view them in the ViewTaskController screen.," I don't see how that's possible. It is implemented in the downloaded solution code, but the book never implements it.

Not really able to make sense out of your question, since I don't see how it relates to Chapter 7. Please clarify the chapter and project name. p 179 is not in Chapter 7, and there is no mention of a ViewTaskController screen on p. 179 Other than that, I have successfully gone through the entire book, so probably can provide feedback.

This is the forum for a different book.
"Professional iPhone and iPad Application Development"
not
"Professional iPhone and iPad Database Application Programming"
http://p2p.wrox.com/book-professiona...ogramming-603/
is the forum you are looking for.
I don't have the database-application text. So I can't compare how the downloads correlate with the text. Looking at the source download you are correct that the that -didSelectRow… method is implemented. Does the text contain complete implementations? The book that this forum is actually for does, and it is not uncommon to find a method implemented in the complete listing that was not explicitly discussed in the text. Since I don't have the other book I can't tell if it is the case there.
Sorry I can't be of more help.

Bob

Wow, I'm a doofenshmirtz. Thanks for not blatantly pointing that out Bob! I'll go post this on the actual book's forum. For what it's worth, except for his inadvertent omission, this has been an extraordinary book. Cheers

Glad you are finding the book valuable. I have planned on adding it to my study agenda. The reviews on Amazon are extremely positive. So much info to process… (and still try to get real work done!)

Hopefully, your questions will get answered. Some forums are definitely more active than others. When in doubt, if the downloads work as intended, and are error/warning free I would use them as my basis and assume that there are omissions in the text (or possibly assumptions, if a procedure has previously been demonstrated, that certain methods need to be implemented for certain functionality to take place)

Good luck with the rest of the book.

Bob

Dont feel bad about the mixup. The books look almost identical. Both have paintbrushes and the titles are extremely similar.

I had no control over the design.

You are not the first to make the mistake !

Thanks for stopping by :)

Take Care,
Gene
