Coding for OS X and iPhone – Part II

After fighting with Dashcode for about 24 hours, I quickly discovered that most of my problems involved overthinking the problems. For example, after scouring Google for solutions to load and reload images from the web into a image containter the answer was so trivial that I missed it several times.

URL = “http://www.example.com;
document.getElementById(‘picture’).src = URL;

Where “picture” is the name of the image container in the layout.

After looking at XMLrequestHTTP and other procedure calls, this was a rather trivial answer to something I beat my head against for 3 hours. It is clear the single issue about dealing with multiple types of object oriented programing is correctly identifying the object properties and there Getters and Setters.
