It is of type float, and its name is floatMember. The next four lines of code consist of some method declarations: + (void)classMethod; 23 24 CHAPTER 3: Moving Images on a Small Screen—UIKit Controls + (int)classMethodWithParameter:(int)intParam; - (void)instanceMethod; - (float)instanceMethodWithParam1:(float)floatParam andParam2:(int)intParam; @end These look almost like method declarations in C and similar languages, except they don’t have a list of parameters enclosed in parentheses, and they have plus and minus signs in front.
One other difference is that #import reads the header file only once. In the code in Listing 3–1, we import the Foundation framework. The significance of this is that the Foundation framework is the framework on which all other Objective-C frameworks are based. It’s called Foundation because it’s the foundation of all the other Objective-C frameworks. The Foundation framework defines a few basic classes, which you will use very frequently in your iPhone programming. These classes represent typical data in an app, such as numbers, strings, arrays, sets, and implementations of many other computer science and OO concepts.
Then you learned how to use method parameters in Objective-C. In the next few sections, you will learn how to use the SampleClass. Using an Objective-C Class Now let’s look at how to allocate and initialize an instance, how to call class methods and instance methods, and how to call methods with parameters. Listing 3–3 shows the sample code that accomplishes this. Listing 3–3. 0 andParam2: 2]; [instance release]; The first line of code in Listing 3–3 declares a variable named instance, of type pointer to an object of a class type SampleClass.
