Hi, I don’t know where else to put this, so I’m just going to put it here, since this is what chapter I’m on.
When going through these books (I just read the Objective-C Programming: The Big Nerd Ranch Guide) i tend to take what I have just learned and take it as far as I can. So for instance, after making the random number generator app, I started creating another small app that would say something funny when you clicked on one of 8 buttons.
Now, what I am trying to do is have the user click on a button, and have that button display a timer in a text field next to it. So for instance, this button is named “Enemy Red:” and when you click on it, the textfield next to it starts a countdown from 8:00 (8 minutes) to 0 seconds. The only problem is that I have no idea how to do this, and even googling it hasn’t helped me. Can I get any help here? I apologize if this is covered later in the book by the way, but I searched through it and didn’t find anything that helped me.
