Part II. Interface

This part of the book is about view controllers, and about all the various kinds of view provided by the Cocoa framework — the built-in building blocks with which you’ll construct an app’s interface.

  • Chapter 6 is about view controllers, the fundamental iOS mechanism for allowing an entire interface to be replaced by another. Every app you write will have its interface managed by at least one view controller.
  • Chapter 7 is about scroll views, the iOS mechanism for letting the user scroll and zoom the interface.
  • Chapter 8 explains table views, a type of scroll view that lets the user navigate through any amount of data, along with collection views, a generalization of table views.
  • Chapter 9 is about two forms of interface especially characteristic of the iPad — popovers and split views.
  • Chapter 10 describes several ways of presenting text (including styled text) in an app’s interface — labels, text fields, text views, and text drawn directly.
  • Chapter 11 discusses web views. A web view is an easy-to-use interface object backed by the power of a full-fledged web browser.
  • Chapter 12 describes all the remaining built-in iOS (UIKit) interface objects.
  • Chapter 13 is about the forms of modal dialog that can appear in front of an app’s interface.
