Where do I put the Override viewWillAppear?

I'm trying to connect the dots between the instructions in a "iPHone Application For Dummies" book that, while awesome, was published prior to the release of Xcode 4.4.1.

So, I'm weeding my way through a basic app and I've gotten to the point where I need to tell my view to scroll up so the keyboard doesn't cover the text field. Thing is, the book's way doesn't work and I'm needing some to show me how to make this happen.

Here's my storyboard thus far:

#import "ReturnMeToViewController.h"

@interface ReturnMeToViewController ()
@property (nonatomic, retain) IBOutlet UITextField *textField;
@property (nonatomic,retain) IBOutlet UILabel *label;

@end

@implementation ReturnMeToViewController
@synthesize textField;
@synthesize label;




- (BOOL)textFieldShouldReturn:(UITextField *)textField {
   
    if (textField == self.textField) {
        [textField resignFirstResponder];
    }
    return YES;
}

- (void)viewDidLoad
{
    [super viewDidLoad];
      // Do any additional setup after loading the view, typically from a nib.
}

- (void)viewDidUnload
{
    [self setTextField:nil];
    [self setLabel:nil];
    [super viewDidUnload];
    // Release any retained subviews of the main view.
}

- (BOOL)shouldAutorotateToInterfaceOrientation:(UIInterfaceOrientation)interfaceOrientation
{
    return (interfaceOrientation != UIInterfaceOrientationPortraitUpsideDown);
}

@end

Here's the code the book suggested and I'm coming up short:

- (void)viewWillAppear:(BOOL)animated {
 [[NSNotificationCenter defaultCenter]
addObserver:self    
selector:@selector(keyboardWillShow:)    
name:UIKeyboardWillShowNotification    
object:self.view.window];
[super viewWillAppear:animated];
}

I'm thinking this is a fairly common command, but I've not found anything yet online. Could some ninja either show me how to correctly implement this code or give me a URL of an online tutorial?

Thanks!

I corrected the project for you.
We have to put our visual objects on a UIScrollView so that when the keyboard appears we are able to scroll the things up.
Check the warnings on the project to see the details.

have you tried copying the viewWillAppear: method to ReturnMeToViewController.m?

Yep!

When I do, I get two small, yellow triangles to the left of the part of the m file that reads:

- (BOOL)textFieldShouldReturn:(UITextField *)textField {
   
    if (textField == self.textField) {
        [textField resignFirstResponder];
    }
    return YES;
}

The warnings read, "Local declaration of "textField" hides instance variable."

I also get this as an error just prior to the Simulator being terminated:

Obviously blowing it somewhere. What do you think? What do I need to do?

Alright, I'm making progress. In order to, "learn" and not just copy and paste, I brought the code from your app over to mine and while I think I'm poised on great things, I've left something out somewhere and I don't know how or where.

The thing that I think is the problem are those places that have been designated breakpoints, although I don't even know what a breakpoint is.

I've attached a screenshot of what I have. Can you look at it and tell me where I need to check for problems?

Thanks!

A breakpoint looks like an arrow sign adjacent to the lines in your code. At runtime when your app reaches a breakpoint it gets paused by the debugger. You will see it has stopped exactly on the breakpointed line. This technique lets you evaluate and watch the variables and object values in gdb debugger. You can also either step over the lines each line after another or continue the execution.(you find these commands in debug menu)
If you need further help on your project you can upload it to me.
