Can't compile connection ios5

On an app I'm working on for the iPhone, it has decided to not compile on me when I ask it to give me an outlet to a label on a prototype table cell. I've gotten outlets for labels before, but I was using either just a standard view or static cells rather than prototype cells. I'm thinking it probably has to do with the fact that the label belongs to a prototype cell and will be duplicated since they all have the same identifier (Cell), but then again I could be off. I'm not sure what to do with this one, if I use just
cell.textLabel.text

Open in new window

then my upload button doesn't show up until after I click on the cell.

The Error:

Couldn't compile connection: <IBCocoaTouchOutletConnection:0x4007cd200  <IBProxyObject: 0x4007de280> => lblServerName2 => <IBUILabel: 0x4009b7d00>>

Open in new window


Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I could go about setting the text on a custom label inside a prototype cell?

For reference, I've uploaded my project here. It's a mess at the moment, but it's currently just a proof on concept kind of thing. I'm going to go through and do clean up once I get it working.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

I've got it working. When I make the label, I needed to set the tag value. I used 100. Then inside of the cellForRowAtIndexPath method I used this

UILabel *lblServerName = (UILabel*)[cell viewWithTag:100];
lblServerName.text=[server getName];

Open in new window


and now I have my own label running on my own prototype cell with the button showing.
