Good to see the posts about Windows-Based application for Xcode 4.2 and iOS 5. I was working around the problem by using a Single View application without a storyboard. That works fine, but today while working through Chapter 7, I suddenly had a question.
On page 140 it is mentioned that the appDelegate (here: HypnoTimeAppDelegate) is connected to the File’s Owner of the MainWindow.xib and that that is the reason why the appDelegate is sent the application:didFinishLaunchingWithOptions: message. Of course I don’t have a MainWindow.xib, but I did have an automatically created HypnoTimeViewController.h, .m and .xib. Just before I read that page, I had deleted those files, since IMHO they were not used and I wanted to remove any confusion they might create. If I read the post correctly, it is now recommended to use the Empty Application, where you don’t have a XIB to begin with, so my action seems to be okay.
My question: my appDelegate works fine and is sent the message, so did I not understand that sentence in the book correctly? Or did they change this for iOS 5? Or is there another reason my appDelegate gets the message without having the connection to a XIB?
Thanks for helping me out!
