Can you add an exception breakpoint and run the app again? It then will point to the line that's causing the problem ;)

These images does not help very much unfortunately. But WHEN does the crash occur? When you launch it? When you click on a particular button? When you navigate to a different viewController?

When I hit run in Xcode, while compiling i guess. Here is my project, https://www.dropbox.com/sh/um4c1yjo29tj28q/AAAWs_HRbAlBMmwg8iKYT2M1a it would be very kind if you could take a look. thank you

Got it. In your LoginViewController.m where you declare you username and password. Your 'username' property was properly connected to the storyboard. I checked the storyboard and it said you were connected but, for some reason, you weren't (one of several reasons i prefer to do everything in code ;) )

Long story short. Connect your username property in the storyboard once more and you should be all set.

Well, you mean to reconnect this?

@property (weak, nonatomic) IBOutlet UITextField *usernameField;

I did, and nothing happened:(

Yes that was exactly what I meant. Hmm, that odd. I did it and the app ran without problem.

EDIT:

What's even more strange is the fact that i download from your dropbox link once more, ran the project without changing anything, and everything worked fine..

So could you please upload the project and give me a link, maybe this strange thing will work in both directions :) My question is, how to detect such problems, when neither exceptions nor console log are not quite helpful?

Cool, now it works. I have no idea why I can't do this reconnection properly, but your project works perfectly. Thank you Thoman, I'm really grateful!

PS. how you detect such issues? I would never figure it out that it was about connecting a property.

I got these 3 connected and still my project is yielding the same exceptions, funny:) Anyway, thank you very very much!
