iOS Build a Self-Destructing Message iPhone App Using Parse.com as a Backend and Adding Users Signing Up New Users: Part 1 (UIAlertView)

Help Please

We're working on a simple app that lets a user guess a number that the app picks. To start, add an IBOutlet in the header file for a UITextField. The IBOutlet variable should be named 'numberField' and should be 'nonatomic' and 'strong'.

import "UIViewController.h"

import "UITextField.h"

@interface NumberGuesserViewController : UIViewController

  • (IBAction)makeGuess:(id)sender;

adding an IBOutlet usually looks something like this:

@property (attribute, attribute) IBOutlet Classname *outletName;

the question says the property should have the attributes nonatomic and strong, should be of the class UITextField, and be named numberField
