Join Todd Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding the Xcode interface, part of Programming for Non-Programmers: iOS 8.
- Xcode can be an overwhelming application.…But as you become familiar with the interface,…it begins to feel more intuitive.…Let's discuss how the user interface is organized in Xcode.…The first place we're going to look, is the Toolbar.…Toolbar is at the top of the screen.…On the left side of the Toolbar,…you have options for testing your application.…In the center, you see your project name…and the status of your application in its last test.…And then at the top right, we have…two sets of three buttons each.…
The set on the left we aren't going…to use much until later on.…So for right now, I'm not going to talk about it.…The set on the right allows you to show or hide…particular areas of the user interface.…The areas that are highlighted in blue are showing.…So if I click this left button,…you'll see the Navigator disappear.…And then the Navigator will reappear…if I click the button again.…We can do the same thing for the bottom area,…which gives you code feedback.…I'll hide that area.…
And the right side is the Utilities area.…
