Final Projects
 Projects will be individual
An acceptable iPad project can couple to an iPhone project
 Projects can be in iOS, Windows 8 or Android
 You are responsible for Win 8 or Android technology
 I have a small number of iOS devices that can be used by students
without one.



May have to share
Likely have to deploy from a non-community Mac
 Must utilize at least one major and one minor iOS framework and
feature not covered in first 6 assignments; preferably >1 major.
 Project must be pre-approved


Often because proposed project too difficult to complete
Sometimes need to be modified for content

Final Project Ideas
 Augmented Reality is always a winner
 There are some interesting robots utilizing the
iPhone.
 One could make a board game with iPhone players
and iPad game board.
 OpenGL is a good feature.
 External universal frameworks are NOT allowed.
 Utilizing a backend is good, but not much credit given
for backend logic

Assignment #3a Comments
 Most people handled graph title display wrong. What is the purpose of








the title?
Still had a number of @synthesize issues with “_”
Back button too often said BACK
For many x did not complete a number.
Many of you took away your undo key. It should still be there.
Some pans did not pan linearly. Graph should follow finger – and do
so in real time.
Axis should always be full screen
For calculator, if you don’t do rotation properly, don’t allow rotation.
Some submissions did not handle rotation of the graph.

Target / Action
 When a controller wants a view to get back to it when
something happens, it use Target / Action.
 The Target is the class instance to receive a
message from the view when something happens
 The Action is the method sent to the Target when the
trigger happens.
 View items, like buttons, can have multiple
target/action pairs.
 A target and its associated method can be triggered
by multiple situations.
SEC - 9/19/12
COMP 446 / ELEC 446 - Week 5
16
Protocols, Delegates and DataSources
 Protocols define a set of required and optional methods and
properties to accomplish something

Protocols can be placed in an existing or a separate header file.


Use @class className to forward reference a class
Protocols can inherit other protocols – adding the inherited requirements
and optional methods to their own
 Delegates are classes which publicize that they handle the
requirements of a protocol. These classes get set as the delegate
normally in a property of the class defining the protocol.


It is safe to send a required protocol method to a class that states it
handles a protocol. It must check respondsTo for optional methods.
<myProtocol> is used to identify that a class responds to myProtocol

Can also be added to an iVar or property.
 DataSources are Delagates handling data values

Protocols and Assignment #3
 The Calculator is an MVC with the
CalculatorBrain as the Model
 The Graphing MVC is supposed to be generic
and use a protocol for its view’s data
(valueAtPointX)
 Where should the protocol be defined?
 Where should the protocol be implemented?
SEC - 9/19/12
COMP 446 / ELEC 446 - Week 5

Assignment 3 Protocol Definition
 GraphView controller uses delegate to get y
value for given x
 GraphView wants to be generic
 As such, GraphView is a great place to define
protocol

COMP 446 / ELEC 446 - Week 5

Assignment 3 DataSource
 Can go in either GraphViewController or
CalculatorViewController.
 If in GraphViewController, then
GraphViewController is no longer generic
 Preferred location is in CalculatorViewController

Keeps GraphViewController generic
 Perceived as being more difficult; but actually not


Requires indirect setting of DataSource
Removes need to pass equation

Assignment 3 DataSource Steps
 CVC <GraphViewDataSource>

self.gvc.dataSource=self;
 GVC

-(void)setDataSource:(id)dataSource
{self.gv.dataSource = dataSource; }
 GV


@property (nonatomic, weak) id
<GraphViewDataSource> dataSource;
@synthesize dataSource=_dataSource;

Review of Video 7 Items
 Many of the slides to follow come directly
from the Fall 2011 Stanford CS193p slide
deck.
 Some come from earlier versions of CS193p
which I think were a bit clearer than the
current deck

UIToolbar
 Collection of UIBarButtonItems
 Enable by checking “Shows Toolbar”
 Toolbar items belong to view, not controller

UISplitViewController
SEC - 9/19/12
COMP 446 / ELEC 446 - Week 5
24
UISplitViewControllerDelegate
 Required to see left side in portrait mode.

- (BOOL)splitViewController:(UISplitViewController *)sender
shouldHideViewController:(UIViewController *)master
inOrientation:(UIInterfaceOrientation)orientation
{return UIInterfaceOrientationIsPortrait(orientation); } // or YES/NO
SEC - 9/19/12
COMP 446 / ELEC 446 - Week 5

Left Side Going Away, Show BBI
 - (void)splitViewController:(UISplitViewController *)sender
willHideViewController:(UIViewController *)master
withBarButtonItem:(UIBarButtonItem *)barButtonItem
forPopoverController:(UIPopoverController *)popover
{
barButtonItem.title = @“Master”; // use a better word than “Master”!
// setSplitViewBarButtonItem: must put the bar button
somewhere on screen
// probably in a UIToolbar or a UINavigationBar
[detailViewController setSplitViewBarButtonItem:barButtonItem];
}
 Your job to write setSplitViewBarButtonItem
SEC - 9/19/12
COMP 446 / ELEC 446 - Week 5

Left Side Coming Back, Remove BBI

- (void)splitViewController:(UISplitViewController *)sender
willShowViewController:(UIViewController *)master
invalidatingBarButtonItem:(UIBarButtonItem *)barButtonItem
{
// removeSplitViewBarButtonItem: must remove the bar button from its toolbar
[detailViewController removeSplitViewBarButtonItem:nil];
}

Sample setSplitViewBarButtonItem
- (void)setSplitViewBarButtonItem:(UIBarButtonItem *)barButtonItem
{
UIToolbar *toolbar = [self toolbar]; // might be outlet or calculated
NSMutableArray *toolbarItems = [toolbar.items mutableCopy];
if (_splitViewBarButtonItem) [toolbarItems removeObject:_splitViewBarButtonItem];
// put the bar button on the left of our existing toolbar
if (barButtonItem) [toolbarItems insertObject:barButtonItem atIndex:0];
toolbar.items = toolbarItems;
_splitViewBarButtonItem = barButtonItem;
}

28
Updating Detail View Controller
 Target/Action or Segue
 Since detail always on screen and segue replaces
view, Target / Action more common
 Get pointer to detail view controller:

id detailViewController = [[self.splitViewController viewControllers] lastObject];
SEC - 9/19/12
COMP 446 / ELEC 446 - Week 5

UIPopoverController
 Not a UIViewController subclass
 Typically created in storyboard
 contentViewController property for displayed
viewController

Universal Applications
 If not enabled, runs iPhone apps a 2X
 If target for iPad, but nothing special done, you
end up with a full screen application
 Typical paradigm is with UISplitViewController
 Create separate iPhone and iPad storyboards
 Often significant reuse of most classes

COMP 446 / ELEC 446 - Week 5

Am I Running on a iPad???
 BOOL iPad = (UI_USER_INTERFACE_IDIOM() == UIUserInterfaceIdiomPad);
 If (self.splitViewController) { … } //splitViewController only on iPad

View Controller Lifecycle
 Made significantly simpler in iOS 5 with ARC
 Main entry points



- awakeFromNib // earliest entry
- viewDidLoad // outlets set, bounds not set
- viewWillAppear:(BOOL)animated



VERY close to appearing.
May happen multiple times
Put expensive operations in separate thread
COMP 446 / ELEC 446 - Week 5

Will / Did
 Many lifecycle methods have Will and Did versions






- (void)viewWillDisappear:(BOOL)animated
- (void)viewDidAppear:(BOOL)animated;
- (void)viewDidDisappear:(BOOL)animated;
- (void)willRotateToInterfaceOrientation: …
- (void)willAnimateRotationToInterfaceOrientation:
- (void)didRotateFromInterfaceOrientation:

viewDidUnload
 Called in low memory situations
 Only if you are off screen
