This particular RW ebook has always been my favorite for years because Matthijs, mystically, seems to always have the information that I need at the moment. This version of iOS Apprentice is no exception.
This is not to say that the other RW ebooks and tutorials are not invaluable because each are essential to those of us who want to improve our dev skills. I have the highest regard for all of you who work so hard to provide the knowledge that is within this website. Bravo!
I have this question based on the following:
In Checklists, Matthijs notes - “Don’t type anything into the button’s Title field. … If your app runs on an iPhone where the language is set to something other than English, these predefined buttons are automatically translated into the user’s language.” I was not aware of this, thus my question.
I have an app that uses two scenes: Scene One is embedded in a Navigation Controller and allows the user to enter numerical data required by Scene Two.
When the user’s makes her final data entry and taps the view, Scene Two slides into view displaying all of the calculations based on the data she entered in Scene One. Scene Two has a single navigation button that I added entitled “Back”.
To clarify, this is not the “Back” button that is automatically added to Scene Two when Scene One has a Bar Button Item dragged onto its navigation bar. Scene One has no bar button items at this stage.
What I would like to know is this: Is it possible to code up a “<Back” button that would be translated into other languages such as the drag on Bar Button Items are able to do?
I am familiar with creating nav bar buttons, but I think these buttons will not be translated into the user’s language. At least, that is what I think.
Further clarification: As noted above, the user causes Scene Two to slide in only after she enters the final required data and taps the view. By design, there are no bar button items to choose from in Scene One. Because of this, as best I know, without the addition of an added Bar Button Item to Scene One’s navigation bar, the “< Back” button will never appear in Scene Two.
I hope I’ve explained this sufficiently clear to warrant a response.
