Moon Travel Planner: Creating a Project

Let’s get some practice with Project Builder by creating a project from a Carbon application template, then building and running it. You’ll create a new project for the Moon Travel Planner application we specified in Chapter 2. When you’re done, you’ll have an application that displays an empty window and lets you quit.

To create the Moon Travel Planner project, do the following:

  1. Double-click the Project Builder icon located in Mac OS X in the directory /Developer/Applications. The first time you open Project Builder, the Project Builder Assistant opens. You’ll need to complete the setup process before you can proceed with the next step.

  4. Type Moon Travel Planner as the project name (as shown in Figure 3.13) and click Set to choose a location to store the project. A sheet appears that lets you navigate to the location you want to store the project.

  5. Click Finish. The main window for Project Builder opens, with files for our new application in the Groups & Files list. ...
