Default CHAPTER 3 - Outlets and Actions TRY IT OUT program is not working

Hi All,

I have tried the TRY IT OUTsection in Chapter 3, to understand about outlets and actions. I have done all the steps given in that book(Beg. iPad App Dev.). After I compile I could see my app in the iPhone/Pad simulator. But when I click/touch on the app icon it just wriggles(something like opening & closing immediately).

How can I diagnose this? Is there any logs to find the exact issue?. Please help me.

This is my first experience with app development.

Thankyou all.

Hi I have fixed the issue.

In console it shows the following message
Loaded the ABCViewController nib but the view outlet was not set.

I googled this error and found the following:

View's outlet (which is named "view") was not set; by dragging the New Referencing Outlet over to the File's Owner icon view's outlet will be set.

And I did the same and it fixed the issue.

Actually in the Beginning iPad Application Development book in the outlet examples he did not mention this step. I am new to Apple native app programming. Hence I tried to follow exactly the steps given in the book. Hence this problem.

Anyhow thankyou for your help.
