    I want to see my code/project pictured in a visual chart (flowchart) form. Does XCode have a way to do this for my entire project?

    I think I speak for us all when I say, No and Why?

    Why?!

    Me too, I hate Roman-character-based code but love flowcharts. :D

    XCode can't, but if you take your xcode project file and have OmniGraffle installed you can drag the project file over the OmniGraffle icon in your dock and it will map out all of your classes/delegates/protocols/etc. in a cool interactive graphic

    Also, your code should be written in a way that doesn't have a predetermined 'flow'. The execution is based on user interaction and other events, so it wouldn't make sense to map it out into a flowchart

    Storyboards show the flow of your UI pretty well...

    Core Data can show the "flow" of your data pretty well...

    adding a plus 1 that it would be good it xcode could generate a similar class map to the core data map it would be good.

    Sometimes you just need to be able to look at a problem a different way to see the solution.

    Might have to buy Omnigraffle now or and send Apple feedback.

    Keep in mind that it is the Pro version of OmniGrffle that works with Xcode.
