Compilation error

Hi i have problem with compilator. I think my code is clear self.tabBarController.tabBar.selectedIndex = tabBarItems.count;

1 Answer

The tabBar doesn't have a selectedIndex property, but the tabBarController has.

Also, you should consider sending your array the count message instead of accessing it with the dot notation. Many do this because the count property is read-only. It's only a matter of taste, of course.

self.tabBarController.selectedIndex = [tabBarItems count];
