Hey guys, I'm currently learning Objective C and have a question about asterisk placement (I generally understand pointers using asterisks to declare them). In the book I'm reading (iPhone Development for Dummies) the asterisk is placed differently a few times, and I'm not sure why. Could someone tell me why it's in different locations in the following examples? NSString* blah (NSString *) blah IBOutlet UITextfield *textField And also why there is no asterisk in the following statement? CGRect rect = self.view.frame; Thanks for reading!
