How do I make a master detail template into a catalog?

The app: I need to make an iPad app for cashiers at a small school uniform business to ring up customers.  Using the master detail view template, The schools are listed in the master view.  Depending on which school is selected, the available uniforms in detail view should change to the one's for that specific school.  Also, these uniforms should have a cost associated with them and a way to select quantity so they can be totaled up after being added to the cart.

Quick description of what I have so far:  So far, I have it so the app has different school in the master view.  I am having a hard time making it populate with different uniforms when one of the schools is selected.

Hi nickd91,

I assume you have a master view  that contains a UITableView.  One of your delegate methods referenced in the Apple documents is "tableView:didSelectRowAtIndexPath:".  This you will need to implement this method.

Now if you only have a list of schools and each school only has one uniform then each time the person selects a school then the above method will run.  

Then what you need to do is create a way of passing the choice to the class of your detail view.  This means that you need your master view to have access to the instance of your detail view controller and then to have a custom method in your detail view controller that accepts your school choice.

There are a number of ways of passing this information between your master view and detail view.  Here is one example using a protocol & delegate.
