Sample Code fails - The application Delegate

I am following the sample code on page 183 under the section “The application Delegate”.

I getting a compiler error stating that the Control reaches the end of non-void function.

Here is the code I am using from the book - I can’t see a typo. It seems like this function should be returning a boolean and it doesn’t return anything? I am getting the error on the very last line of my pasted code with the closing curly bracket.

  • (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:(NSDictionary *)launchOptions
    //Attempt to load an existing to-do dataset from an array stored to disk.
    NSArray *plist = [NSArray arrayWithContentsOfFile:docPath()];
    if (plist) {
    //If there was a dataset available, copy it into our instance variable.
    tasks = [plist mutableCopy];
    } else {
    //Otherwise, just create an empty one to get us started.
    tasks = [[NSMutableArray alloc] init];

I appreciate anyone’s time in looking at my problem and giving me some help.

A return statement is required at the end of the function:

- (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application ...
    return YES;

Thanks - I thought that might be the problem as well but there is no return statement in the book so… Maybe something they can fix on the next printing.

Ack! Good catch. I’ve updated the materials and this’ll be fixed in the next printing. Thanks!
