Comment on "What Do People Find Challenging About Cocoa?"
by Todd — May 18
Coming from a swing and Visual Studio background, I am definitely having trouble with interface builder. It is not so much the "magic" of it, just that it works backwards to how I am used to. In all the other IDEs I have used to do GUI work, you create your screens and then use the screens / methods on the GUI items to "dive into" your code and set up what you want to occur for onClick() and the like.

In XCode/IB it seems that you do the exact opposite, in that you write the code that you want to happen first and then connect it back to the GUI.

I'm sure part of this is that I am rusty, in that I have been doing mostly SQL and scripting for the past few years, but it definitely takes some getting used to.
