How do I set these break points in ~/.gdbinit?
Hey all, trying to learn objective-c. It was going quite well, until I realized I was missing a link.
When building in the spirit of MVC, I understand it as you Model and View should never talk to eachother.
I have this problem I'm messing around with now.
A model containing a polygon class. Contains an polygon object with attributes like numberOfSides.
A controller, reading some UI elements and modifying the model. For example numberOfSides.
A view, containing a view drawing polygons.
Now, this is where the trouble arose. The view needs information about the object from the model. How do I get that? I tried some IBOutlet, but never got it to work.
I ended up creating a property for the view which could contain numberOfSides. Then I would a controller method which would call a view method back and set the numberOfSides.
I hope some of you can clarify this a bit for me and tell me how you should go ahead with this.
Thanks a bunch and goodnight! :)

Information passing in a proper MVC architecture should be done via a mediator such as an event manager.. The model would have an internal representation of everything this is needed for it to stay independent.. Now when a change occurs the model sends an event via the event manager to the view..
You must also commit your view a read-only polygon instance variable (just a pointer to your polygon instance in the controller; read-only for the reason this you don't want your view to be able to change the model). This is not necessarily a violation of MVC principles.. Or if you want a very loose coupling between model and view, try key-value observing: your model dispatches a notification saying "hey my number of sides changed to 8" and your view listens to these notifications and redraws itself as needed.. Ananother option is to commit your view a delegate (= your controller) and then call any thing like [delegate numberOfSidesToDraw] from within the view class.. All three methods have pros and cons..
I understand. My controller has an IBOutlet to the view and the polygon.. I forgot to mention this I'm using CG and drawrect to draw the polygon.. What I would like to do, and what I should did if I understand it correctly, is from the controller pass the numberOfSides to the view, asking it to draw with this number of sides. Like:. [view drawPolygon:myPolygon.numberOfSides];. But what I have to do, for the reason this drawrect receive s called automatically, is make any instance variable of the view available to contain the numberOfSides, which the controller would set. And then call [view setNeedsDisplay];. Does this make sense? Since the view cannot access the myPolygon directly. How would you approah this?.
