Retrieving/Setting the name of objects placed in Main.storyboard
Does anyone know how to retrieve the names of objects placed on the Main.storyboard if they weren't hardcoded into the app? For example, I'm creating an app and instead of hardcoding a button into the app, I've used the 'button' object in the object library and dragged it onto the storyboard. Is there a way to create a UIButton pointer that points to that button?

you create a UIButton outlet property by control dragging from the button in your storyboard to your view controller header file using the assistant editor. Then you can reference that UIButton property in your code.
