    Hey, could someone post a couple line of code on how to count how many items you have in a table view and display them as a badge on the applications home screen?

    Please help

    Easiest if you have like an array of that table's data...then you'd just go

    [UIApplication sharedApplication].applicationIconBadgeNumber = [array count];

    OK, What file do I put it in. The Delegate, ViewController? .m or .h file?

    Make a quick tutorial on what I need to do. What lines of code need to go into the h file and m file. I have tried this method and got no results except for an error.

    Please help,

    Do you actually want to learn how to create an app yourself? Asking for this type of help is not the way...

    so noodle it out. you can only have an array count where the array is instantiated and used, therefore, you can only use the update badge code where.........
