About loading plist into navigator


I'm beginner of X-code, now i'm trying to load the data from plist file into navigator but it didn't work well. When application is run, I can see my data from plist but it's not too long because the app. will close itself (I could not slide up and down to fast too ). I don't know why and I tried to release the array but it didn't work, I couldn't access to see the data. If somebody knows how to solve this o, please tell me. Many thanks

Here is my code

NSString *path = [[NSBundle mainBundle]pathForResource:@"statedictionary1" ofType:@"plist"];
NSDictionary *dict = [[NSDictionary alloc]initWithContentsOfFileath];
self.keys = dict;
[dict release];

NSArray *array = [[keys allKeys]sortedArrayUsingSelector:@selector(compare];
self.list = array;

I couldn't release the array because my app will get crashed. I don't know why

You are releasing an object you don't own. Read the (and understand) the Memory Management Guide.

Please read the sticky thread about the use of the CODE tags. Your code is now mangled.

Thank you for your reply

@robbieduncan : I didn't get it yet, but I 've fixed my code now. I can release the array and it works though. There's still one problem, when I scroll up or down quickly or sometimes just scrolling down or up, the application still closed itself. Did I do something wrong? or could you tell me how to fix the code?

	NSString *path = [[NSBundle mainBundle]pathForResource:@"statedictionary1" ofType:@"plist"];
	NSDictionary *dict = [[NSDictionary alloc]initWithContentsOfFile:path];
	self.keys = dict;
	[dict release];
	NSArray *array = [[NSArray alloc] init];
	[array release];				  
	array = [[keys allKeys]sortedArrayUsingSelector:@selector(compare:)];
	self.list = array;
	[super viewDidLoad];

	self.list = nil;
	[super viewDidUnload];

	self.list =nil;
	[super didReceiveMemoryWarning];

	[super dealloc];
	[list release];
	[keys release];
	[childController release];


-(NSInteger)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView numberOfRowsInSection:(NSInteger)section {
	return [self.list count];

-(UITableViewCell *)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath {

	NSString *button = @"Sunday";
	UITableViewCell *cell = [tableView dequeueReusableCellWithIdentifier:button];
	if(cell == nil){
		cell = [[[UITableViewCell alloc]initWithStyle:UITableViewCellStyleDefault reuseIdentifier:button]autorelease];
	NSUInteger row = [indexPath row];
	NSString *rowString =[list objectAtIndex:row];
	cell.textLabel.text = rowString;
	cell.textLabel.font = [UIFont systemFontOfSize:15];
	cell.accessoryType = UITableViewCellAccessoryDetailDisclosureButton;
	[rowString release];
	return cell;


-(void)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView accessoryButtonTappedForRowWithIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath{
	if (childController == nil)
		childController = [[DetailSecond alloc]initWithNibName:@"DetailSecond" bundle:nil ];
	childController.title = @"SundayZ";
	NSUInteger row = [indexPath row];
	NSString *selectedR =[list objectAtIndex:row];
	NSString *details = [[NSString alloc]initWithFormat:@"You press %@", selectedR];
	childController.message = details;
	childController.title = selectedR;
	[details release];
	[self.navigationController pushViewController:childController animated:YES];
@balamw I'm sorry, I apologize, I've just registered half a day. - -"

You can't release rowString either. Have you read the Memory Management Guide yet?

P.S. There's also a problem with the order of things in your dealloc.
