I’m similarly looking at my own challenge from Chap 25, have a question. Can anyone explain why an NSXMLParser would not engage when called, or start doing its job?
In a nutshell, i entered the code from Chap 25 “as is” using XCode 4.2 / iOS 5 conventions … like ARC … no need for releases yay, go apple! … making only such changes as Xcode demanded or i understood to be necessary (ie. close to nil)… and using a Storyboard. Simple. But for some reason nothing is being parsed … or the parser is never finding the element in self.xmlData. I’m stumped. The RSS feed is coming in fine prints fine, start to finish … but the parser does not appear to be engaging.
On page 419: “Build and run … you should see a log message that the channel was created.” (not here)
On page 421: “Build and run … you should see log statements with valid values …” (mine are Null)
everything runs fine up till that point … but values are null
