I'm pretty new to Objective-C, but I do understand a lot of the syntax and the way it handles objects through messages.  But that's about it.  

One thing I'm trying to learn is how to add UI controls programmatically and I found some sample code to try and do this.  However, I'm not sure what method I need to "paste" the following code into.  It's for an NSButton.  

This is the sample code I found:
NSView *superview = [window contentView]; 
NSRect frame = NSMakeRect(10, 10, 200, 100); 
NSButton *button = [[NSButton alloc] initWithFrame:frame]; 
[button setTitle:@"Click me!"]; 
[superview addSubview:button]; 
[button release];

Any help is appreciated!
