Hi all. I can't seem to figure out how I would create a button template ie. a button with labels in each corner and one in the centre. and then create a matrix of 9 x 13 of those buttons. also how do you access the matrix without having 117 IBOutlets ? Could I do it in IB or would it be better to create it programmatically? thanks Ian ps. Should the button object be a UIViewClass ?? or an NSObject.. pss. I did call it a NUBE question..
