Connections Panel not showing Outlets

Hello, I'm brand new to iOS development - literally. I'm following a how-to from the book "iPhone Programming The big nerd ranch guide."

I have created the project called Quiz.

Under classes QuizAppDelegate.h I have:

@interface QuizAppDelegate : NSObject <UIApplicationDelegate> {

int currentQuestionIndex;

//Model Objects
NSMutableArray *questions;
NSMutableArray *answers;

//view objects
IBOutlet UILabel *questionField;
IBOutlet UILabel *answerField;
}

@property (nonatomic, retain) IBOutlet UIWindow *window;

- (IBAction)showQuestion:(id)sender;
- (IBOutlet)showAnswer:(id)sender;

@end


--------------------


In the User interface window I have added 2 fields and 2 buttons. When I Control-Click on anything, the Connections Panel opens, but nothing shows up in it.

I have saved, closed and reopened. Checked the syntax, and did Clean all targets.

I'm brand new to this and it's probably simple. Can anyone help?

Use

@property(nonatomic, retain) for

IBOutlet UILabel *questionField;
IBOutlet UILabel *answerField;


in your ".h" file
and also use

@synthesize questionField;
@synthesize answerField;

Thanks

in your ".m" file

I figured it out. In the Doc window I double clicked the App Delegate icon and it opened the connections window, and it was only there that I could see the outlets. Then I was able to drag them onto the interface and see them.

I'm still not sure why it wouldn't show them when I Control/Clicked on the interface.

Anyway thank for the response.
