IOS customizing TextView

Hi I am a novice but have an Idea for an application that would require a textview customized. I've watched ios app tutorials here, but they use basic functionality of textview.

For simplicity, what I want to do is kind of detect line breaks (\n) and display feedback on that current line (perhaps on key up events), in this case its just displaying the line number.


Is there any resources / tutorials that a more experienced ios programmer might be able to point me to? Im having a difficult time pinpointing a decent tutorial on this.

You should probably subclass the UITextView class and override/add some methods and probably add some properties.
