I read in the Official Errata list that I should be referring to statusLabel as _statusLabel instead of just statusLabel. But I was looking at the sample code and I saw that you guys have just referred to it as statusLabel. After scanning the file for other references, I saw this line: @synthesize
statusLabel; I copied the exact same line in my file and I could refer to statusLabel as it is without using underscore. So I went back to p.49 of the text on outlet and @property
and I didn't see any information on @synthesize
. I am pretty certain this will be explained moving forward but my curiosity can't wait for when it is introduced, so can you please explain what is this construct for?
Thank you very much for your attention.
