If you do some dragging, I'm guessing you are using storyboards. If that's the case, open your storyboard / XIB file and in Xcode press cmd + alt + 0 (opens Utilities pane), select your UI element, that you want to connect the output to and in the utilities select the last menu (arrow inside a circle - "connections inspector"), delete the old connection which should appear there, then you should have no problems dragging and connecting whatever you want from storyboard to code.
