Should I rename UIViewController after change of heart – DON’T

March 28, 2009 § Leave a comment

Interface Builder is one of the most undocumented and most important part of iPhone SDK development. You can search the latest developer books on iPhone SDK or books specific on Xcode and still find no practical guide in debugging problems.

I found many iphone SDK developers won’t share their debugging experience. I am sharing these hard-earned tips here.

Don’t ever think of renaming the project name, UIViewController, etc after you change your mind. If you are using Xcode template Utility application, you would mess up the connections from Interface Builder and couldn’t get the application to run properly.

If you want to keep the same project name, just copy entire project folder outside Xcode. Rename the backup folder with different name. Create a new project with proper name.
