[Extra Credit] Show Profile in Build a Self-Destructing message app

Hi there.

I've been trying to figure out the extra credit for part 3 on Build a Self-Destruction Message App, and I've figured everything but one thing out: How to pass prepareForSegue the self.friends indexPath for the friend that the user is clicking on.

    if ([segue.identifier isEqualToString:@"showProfile"]) {
        ProfileViewController *viewController = (ProfileViewController *)segue.destinationViewController;
        PFUser *clickedUser = [self.friends objectAtIndex:0];
        viewController.profileUser = clickedUser;

Obviously, the segue goes to the same user every time, but I can't figure out how to get [self.friends objectAtIndex:??], to make it functional. Any hints/advice will help, Thanks.

Assuming you are triggering the segue by selecting a row in your table view, is there a way to obtain the index of the selected row from the table view?
