Somehow I got lost with this one... why does this no work..?

Question: Assume we are creating an app to display random quotes. So far our app has a label and a button that have been added to the view. We need to create an 'IBAction' for our button. Please define a method called 'buttonPressed' and make sure it returns an 'IBAction'.


import "THViewController.h"

@property (strong, nonatomic) IBAction; @implementation THViewController

  • (IBAction) buttonPressed;

As far as I know the implementation part should not be a declaration. If you notice in your answer instead of implementing buttonPressed, you have just declared it again. An implementation would be some thing like

-(IBAction) buttonPressed{ //Your code goes here }
