Hi, i desperately need help in understanding how to pass data between sub views and their parent views. going both ways.

more specifically i have navigation controller, and then one screen into that navigation controller i have a sub view container with a tab view controller inside it.

how do i get data to the views inside the tab bar controller? do i need to create class files for each view inside the tab bar? do I just use prepare for segue technique?
