Book 3: Mastering Xcode and Swift / Re: Core Data Concurrency
« on: February 16, 2017, 01:11:48 AM »
Seyed,

Youíre right that mmBusinessObject was meant to run on a single thread...it's a rare application that needs concurrency on Core Data. I recommend checking out this resource for other ideas:

Swift 3 Code / mmBusinessObject for Swift 3
« on: October 08, 2016, 04:32:25 AM »
If you have been using mmBusinessObject and its associated classes in your own custom projects, here's an update of these files for Swift 3. To use these files, just replace the old version in your project with these updated versions (you only need to replace files with the same name).

All the Best!

Book 2: Learn to Code in Swift / Re: Updates on Book 2?
« on: June 28, 2016, 07:53:59 PM »
Andrew,

We are marketing "Learn to Code in Swift" as a standalone book, as well as part of the series. We can't post two different versions, so that's why it looks as if it's not part of the series. Sorry for the confusion!

All the best!

Book 3: Mastering Xcode and Swift / Re: Made it to Page 358
« on: June 21, 2016, 02:09:38 PM »
I noticed in your message that you you left out the "r" in statusDescription (statusDesciption). Could that be the problem?

All the best!

They're in the project...just click on Images.xcassets in the Project Navigator and you will see them.

All the best!

Vijay,

At the end of most chapters is a link that streams the videos from our web site.

There is also a link in the first chapter for downloading the sample apps.

All the best!
Kevin

My fault! The code in the book is correct, but somehow an older version of the sample was on our site. I've uploaded the updated code sample which you can download again at this link:

Sorry for the confusion!

Book Updates / Re: Book 4? Any info or release date?
« on: January 27, 2016, 09:51:22 AM »
We have a watchKit book in the works, but when Apple completely revamped the architecture for watchOS 2, it derailed us for a while. We're back at it again, but we currently don't have a release date.

I highly recommend checking out my blog series with iPhone Life magazine. I've taken a hiatus for the holidays, but I'm continually publishing new info on my blog:

General Discussions / Re: Which Book Do I Start With?
« on: January 27, 2016, 09:47:31 AM »
N‚zar,

Welcome to the forum! I recommend reading the books in this order:

Diving into iOS 9
Learn to Code in Swift
Mastering Xcode 7 and Swift

It's still useful to learn Objective-C since many online samples are still written in Objective-C and you need to be able to translate them. So I would tackle the Objective-C book last.

All the best!

FAQs / How to Add a Border to an Image View
« on: January 26, 2016, 02:53:04 PM »
It takes just two lines of code to add a border to an image view.

In Swift:

Code: [Select]
imageView.layer.borderWidth = 2.0
imageView.layer.borderColor = UIColor.whiteColor().CGColor

In Objective-C:

Code: [Select]
[[imageView layer] setBorderWidth:2.0f];
[[imageView layer] setBorderColor:[UIColor whiteColor].CGColor];

All the best!

That may very well be an issue...however, re-downloading the book may also fix the problem.

All the best!

Apple doesn't have a program that allows you to buy a book on Amazon and get a discount in the iBooks store...That said, why don't you contact me via email and we'll discuss it further: kevinm@oakleafsd.com.

All the best!
Kevin
