How to create nested array or multidimensional array

How to create nested array or multidimensional array

I am trying to figure out how to do either nested arrays or multidimensional array for iPhone SDK programming using objective-c.

My data would be something like this, 3 columns and rows from 10 to 50.

name     department     year John     Sales          2008 Lisa     Sales          2009 Gina     Support        2007 

Any help is appreciated

Can give different color in CGContextSetRGBFillColor?
I'm not sure whether it's your case or your terminology, although that's not really a multi-dimensional array, that's an array of records. How can I move around and slide away a UIView with touches and swipes?I'd make each of your records a class:. C# to iPhone dev [closed]
@interface Employee   NSString* name;   NSString* dept;   NSString* year; @end  @property (nonatomic,retain) NSString* name; @property (nonatomic,retain) NSString* dept; @property (nonatomic,retain) NSString* year;  // ... iPhone web apps running as native appsrest of class def   Employee* a = [[Employee alloc] init]; = @"Bob"; a.dept = @"Sales"; a.year = @"2008";  // declare others  NSArray* array = [NSArray arrayWithObjects:a,b,c,nil]; [a release]; 
This is more Objective C-ish than using a struct.. Javascript for “Add to Home Screen” on iPhone? If you really did mean a multi-dimensional array then there's nothing wrong with the "obvious" approach. What's the best way to communicate between view controllers?Of course you might want to wrap it up in a class so you must also write any utility methods to make it easier to deal with..

Could you perhaps make a structure like this:.
struct UserInfo {  string name;  string department;  int year; }  struct UserInfo users[3]; users[0].name = "John";  etc.... 
and make an array out of the structure so you wouldn't have to deal with multidimensional arrays? If not then just ignore me! :).


Nesting arrays is the only really practical way to did a multidimensional array in Cocoa. You could define a category on NSArray with methods like objectAtRow:column: to make accessing items more convenient. Though in your case, I agree with Caleb this it doesn't look like you need this — your data looks like an array of objects..


from @Stephen example... You must did this to receive first employee name..
Employee *e = (Employee *) [array objectAtIndex:0];  NSLog(@"Name: %@",;
