- [Voiceover] I have opened the main.storyboard…within the ExploreCaliforniaTV target…to look at UI labels and UI buttons.…I'm going to work on the two views…that were automatically added…with the Xcode tab template.…Here are the first and second scenes.…I can zoom in the first scene by double clicking on it.…Now, in the left side panel of the interface builder,…I can click on the first scene entry to expand it.…
I can see that the first view controller…already comes with UI labels,…which has text that says first view.…Apple suggests avoiding labels…as much as possible though this app starts…with two labels.…The font used in these labels is very small…and would be hard to read…on the regular TV screen.…What I really need to do is add a few buttons.…
I'll type button into the search box…at the bottom of the inspector tab.…As soon as I hit Enter, I see the UI button control.…I will select the first button entry,…not the bar button item,…and I will drag and drop it inside of my first view.…Apple recommends using either a text button,…
