Example text

This object, like all objects, is a chunk of data allocated from the heap. 1). Page 26 Chapter 2. 1. A class and its instances A C structure is a chunk of memory, and so is an object. A C structure has data members, each with a name and a type. Similarly, an object has instance variables, each with a name and type. But there is an important difference between a structure in C and a class in Objective-C: a class has methods. A method is similar to a function: it has a name, a return type, and a list of parameters that it expects.

To create an object, you send an alloc message to a class. In response, that class creates an object in memory and gives you a pointer to it. In code, creating an object looks like this: NSMutableArray *arrayInstance = [NSMutableArray alloc]; Here an instance of type NSMutableArray is created, and you are returned Page Page 27 27 Chapter 2. Objective-C a pointer to it in the variable arrayInstance. When you have a pointer to an instance, you can send messages to it. The first message you always send to a newly allocated instance is an initialization message.

H, declare the designated initializer: @property (nonatomic, readonly) NSDate *dateCreated; - (id)initWithPossessionName:(NSString *)pName valueInDollars:(int)value serialNumber:(NSString *)sNumber; @end Take another look at this method declaration. Its return type is id. ) init methods are always declared to return id. (Why? If Possession gets subclassed, its initializer will need to return the subclass’s type. When you override a method, you cannot change its return type in the subclass. Therefore, initialization methods should always return id.
