Connect greyed out when adding Referencing Outlet

I've run into an issue where when I try to connect a referencing outlet to my background the Connect button on the dialog is always disabled.


I've tried restarting, and made sure I has the background image view selected but still stuck.

What am I doing wrong?

That's really weird. Ok then, can you insert @property (strong, nonatomic) IBOutlet UIImageView *backgroundImageView; to the @interface and ctrl drag from there to the Image View, please? (in reverse order so to say :) )

That worked! Thanks very much Holger.

Hi Carmen,

Please try the following:

  • Product-->Clean

  • ctrl dragging from the Image View in the left overview panel (please see pic)

Oh, and yes, Xcode (esp. the Storyboard) has this kind of hiccups from time to time :(

Thanks for the response. Same behaviour. Any other suggestions?
