iOS Objective-C Basics (Retired) Introduction to Objective-C Objective-C Syntax and @property

Answer to @property Quiz

I'm completely lost and would like to know the answer to the quiz question, Let's declare an int property and gives the fill in the blank. In the videos I can't seem to find any teaching on how to declare an instance variable in this format. Also, I'm confused by the idea of property. Is that the same as instance variable?

Hi Daniel

Let's declare an int property called "qty". (Remember qty is not an object so it should not have the strong attribute).

@interface Product : NSObject

@property (nonatomic) int qty;   <--answer 

I would watch the videos again. Also check out http://rypress.com/tutorials/objective-c/properties.html

Thanks for the link Aaron. I definitely didn't put the obvious 2 and 2 together. I was confused whether int property also meant it is an @property.

No problem. Glad I could help.
