I am learning to code a simple iPhone app but I got stuck, pls help to solve my problem.

Suppose, when I type my message in the text box and press the "Press Here" button, it should show what I typed in the "label" area but it did not.

It stopped at the breakpoint.  Pls see my snapshot.

It appears that you have everything setup correctly.  Hmmmm, the problem most likely resides with that UILabel not being wired up correctly in interface builder.  Are you using storyboards or xibs?  That does determine how you set it up.

Hope this helps

add following code

@synthesize textBox;
@synthesize label;


@implementation ViewController

And change following line of code

NSString *Output = Nil;


NSString *Output;

I think this will solve the problem

per Deepak instruction, I add two commands to declare textBox and label

@synthesize textBox;
@synthesize label;

also, I have tried the xib wire up

but still no luck.file owner
