iOS Build a Self-Destructing Message iPhone App Relating Users in Parse.com Adding the Edit Friends Screen

Relations User in Parse.com

Hey Guy!! I am trying to follow the Relating Users in Parse.com video. I did all that Ben said and I did not find any failed although I can not see my friends in any list.

What can be wrong in this code?

// // EditFriendsTableViewController.h // Ribbit // // Created by mlabarga on 31/07/14. // Copyright (c) 2014 mayte. All rights reserved. //

import <UIKit/UIKit.h>

import <Parse/Parse.h>

@interface EditFriendsTableViewController : UITableViewController

@property (nonatomic, strong) NSArray *allUsers; @property (nonatomic, strong) PFUser *currentUser;


// // EditFriendsTableViewController.m // Ribbit // // Created by mlabarga on 31/07/14. // Copyright (c) 2014 mayte. All rights reserved. //

import "EditFriendsTableViewController.h"

import <Parse/Parse.h>

@interface EditFriendsTableViewController ()


@implementation EditFriendsTableViewController

  • (void)viewDidLoad { [super viewDidLoad]; PFQuery *query =[PFUser query]; [query orderByAscending:@"username"]; [query findObjectsInBackgroundWithBlock:^(NSArray *objects, NSError *error) { if (error) { NSLog(@"Error: %@ %@",error, [error userInfo]); } else { self.allUsers = objects; [self.tableView reloadData]; } }]; }

pragma mark - Table view data source

  • (NSInteger)numberOfSectionsInTableView:(UITableView *)tableView { // Return the number of sections. return 1; }

  • (NSInteger)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView numberOfRowsInSection:(NSInteger)section { // Return the number of rows in the section. return [self.allUsers count]; }

  • (UITableViewCell *)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath { static NSString *CellIdentifier =@"Cell"; UITableViewCell *cell = [tableView dequeueReusableCellWithIdentifier:CellIdentifier forIndexPath:indexPath];

    PFUser *user = [self.allUsers objectAtIndex:indexPath.row]; cell.textLabel.text =user.username; return cell; }

pragma mark - Table view delegate

  • (void)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView didSelectRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath {

    UITableViewCell *cell = [tableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:indexPath]; cell.accessoryType = UITableViewCellAccessoryCheckmark;

    PFRelation *friendsRelation = [self.currentUser relationForKey:@"friendsRelation"]; PFUser *user = [self.allUsers objectAtIndex:indexPath.row]; [friendsRelation addObject:user]; [self.currentUser saveInBackgroundWithBlock:^(BOOL succeeded, NSError *error) { if (error) { NSLog(@"Error: %@ %@", error, [error userInfo]); } }];



Thank you for your help!!! I am really frustrated

Do you see any potential friends when you click 'Edit Friends'? Are there some users to select?

If not, check Parse - are they there?

If you have selected some friends but can't see them on your Friends list, let's look at your FriendsViewController files.


Hi Steve. Thank you so much for your help. At the end, you are right. I had a problem with Friends. I was writing "Cell" twice (in friends and edit friends.

Once again, thanks. Have a nice day.

Glad you got it sorted!! ;-)
