Join Todd Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting the calculator to add or subtract, part of Programming for Non-Programmers: iOS 7.
…Now, we'll look at what happens when you press the plus and minus buttons.…Note that we're not going to be doing math here.…We're just going to be setting the functionality to…say that the app is in addition or subtraction mode.…So, scroll down in View.m and find tappedPlus.…In here, we're going to run the setMode function.…Remember that you run a function by typing self…inside of square brackets and then the function name, setMode.…
In this case, mode receives an integer value, so we need to pass in an integer.…I'm going to send in one here.…Let's select this line of code, copy it with Cmd+C and paste it into tappedMinus.…Now, in tappedMinus, I'm going to change that one to a…negative one, so I'm going to put a hyphen right before that.…Now, in setMode, the first thing I'm going to do…is save the mode as the value that was passed in.…So mode equals m.…So for, when the plus button is tapped, mode will be one,…and when the minus button is tapped, mode will be negative one.…
On the next line, I'll set lastButtonWasMode equal to YES.…
