IPhone Hello world – Getting started

Today I made my first IPhone app. It was only a Hello World app, but it always feels nice when you try something different. In this case Objective-C for the ios platform. I got my app to open a new view from a button click and change a label to display the current date and time also after a button click.

Some getting started tips.

To get going you need to download the IDE apple provides for ios and osx development: Xcode. Go to the iOS Dev Center, create an apple account. Download and install Xcode and iOS SDK. This website has tons of documentation and also a good Getting started section.

The Hello World app I made was completely programmatic. I used the following guidance:

You can also use the Interface Builder (which comes with Xcode) to create buttons, label and other interface components. To handle the IDE, you need to read to following user guide to understand how this works.

If you want to create your own Hello World, you will want to play arround with buttons and labels. It is wise to understand how views work. Check out the View Programming Guide.

    On that notion, a security alarm in conjunction to the cameras will
    really bring more peace of mind. Superintendent of Schools David Woodall said, “Our campus is just so unexposed to the streets that a person can come on campus at night and walk around without being seen from the street, we are hoping these cameras are going to help us catch some of the people breaking in and hopefully put an end to some of the costly damage. The DVR’s can be attached to an internet connection and accessed from any web browser or 3G phone device.

    Hi there! Quick question that’s completely off
    topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My blog looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this issue.

    If you have any recommendations, please share. Cheers!

    Vous avez oublié un point essentiel. Les fautes d’orthographe, les
    erreurs de syntaxes, les conversations alambiquées et,
    bien pires, les fautes de copie sont des défauts rédhibitoires.
    Toutes choses dont sont truffés vos articles. Pensez à bien relire voire même à faire relire chaque billet par quelques personnes de votre entourage avant sa publication.
    En général, un site internet qui présente ces défauts ne me constate pas revenir.
    Bon courage.
