Programming a segue programatically

Hey guys does any one know how to perform a segue programatically in X code. I was actually trying out something cool for the photo bombers app in the iOS development section. This segue has to be between a bar button in the navigation bar in the top and a view controller.

Hook up a manual segue between the view controller that has the bar button item and the view controller that you're trying to navigate to by control + dragging from one view controller to the next. Click on the segue and give the segue a name in the Attributes Inspector in the "identifier" field. In your bar button item's IBAction put [self performSegueWithIdentifier:@"segueName" sender:self];
