What is a delegate exactly
Posted on 2008-10-29
I have been 'programming' in Access and VBA for years and outside of High School and College programming classes years ago, that is the extent of my programming. I am now trying to learn Objective-C to create Iphone apps. I got a couple great books and found some great tutorial sites, but I have some 'basic' questions that I can not seem to find the answers to anywhere (yeah, this is the same 'into' I used in another question, sorry)
Even in the basic 'Hello World' examples they use SuchAndSuchAppDelegate. If I remember correctly, one web tutorial says something like 'we are not using the AppDelegate in this project...' What the heck is a delegate and how do you know when to use it or not?
Thanks in advance,
