Default Ch. 3 - Using the Web View - UsingViews2

New to mobile apps but not new to programming...ran into first significant problem as stated in the title.

Loading the project into the simulator
- app begins to appear (in other words the screen looks as I expect)
- no web page appears
- app disappears (without action by me) and the empty simulator 'desktop' appears with Safari and Photos icons, as well as the icon for UsingViews2

#import <UIKit/UIKit.h>
@interface UsingViews2ViewController : UIViewController {
	IBOutlet UIWebView *webView;
@property (nonatomic, retain) UIWebView *webView;
#import "UsingViews2ViewController.h"
@implementation UsingViews2ViewController
@synthesize webView;
- (void) viewDidLoad {
	NSURL *url = [NSURL URLWithString:@"http://www.apple.com"];
	NSURLRequest *req = [NSURLRequest requestWithURL:url];
	[webView loadRequest:req];
	[super viewDidLoad];
- (void)didReceiveMemoryWarning {
	// Releases the view if it doesn't have a superview.
    [super didReceiveMemoryWarning];
	// Release any cached data, images, etc that aren't in use.
- (void)viewDidUnload {
	// Release any retained subviews of the main view.
	// e.g. self.myOutlet = nil;
- (void)dealloc {
	[webView release];
    [super dealloc];
- UIWebView placed in the View
- webView connected to the UIWebView via ctrl-click and drag 'File's Owner' to View-UIWebView and selecting webView

Any ideas?

The error is not in your code, so it must be in the Interface. When the app crashes are you getting any messages in the console?

I would recheck the .xib . If you can't locate the problem, send the project to
[email protected]

and I should be able to spot it.

Thank you. Console output below - this makes sense because when I ctrl-drag from the File's Owner to the View, I get a popup with both 'Webview' (the name of the Web View in the interface) and 'view' (and I don't know what this is). I've been connected to 'Webview'. So the 'view' is not connected but I don't know what the 'view' is or where it came from.

There should be 2 outlets in the File's Owner in UsingViews2ViewController.xib, a 'view' outlet and a 'webView' outlet. The webView is embedded in a UIView. Make sure the view outlet is connected to the UIView and the webView is connected to the UIWebView. The first connection should have already been made when the template was loaded. (it is not something you should have had to connect) Maybe somehow it was disconnected.

That did it. Somehow the view outlet got disconnected from the UIView. I fixed it and this works perfectly now.

I'm not understanding outlets yet but making progress.

Thank you very much for pointing me in the right direction.
