Iphone – How to associate a nib (.xib) file with a UIView


I have a subclass "s" of UIView. I want to put some buttons and labels on s. How do I associate my UIView subclass with a nib file?

Best Solution

  1. In Interface Builder, create a new xib with the View template.
    • Click on the view in the list of objects in the xib (you should also see "File's Owner and "First Responder").
    • Push Cmd-4 to open the Identity pane of the inspector.
    • Type your class's name into the "Class Name" field and push return.

You should be able the drag buttons in. To get at the nib from code, use -[NSBundle loadNibNamed:owner:options:]. Your view should be the first object in the returned array.
