    I am very new to developing with the iPhone SDK.
    I am requested to create a nav-based app, to present all the different widgets from the UIKit.
    For example: Buttons, Nav Bars etc...
    However I need to make it interactive. Meaning, if on the TableView, we click on "Buttons" the subview will allo the user to create a button, asking him for example: "How are the corners? what is the color of the text? what is the text? etc etc.... and at the end show the customized button.
    I'll do the same for any other widget in the UIKit framework.

    I am really new so I don't know how to start and especially how to think.

    Has anyone done something like that? or saw a tutorial that might help me?

    Any help would be welcome. Thank you so much.

    I think looking at the UICatalog sample app would be a huge step in the right direction.

    Should I use IB to create the "form"

    Well now I studied UICatalog correctly, I understood (reading here and there too) how to create the nav based app and adding subviews.
    In UICatalog they did not really use IB to create the different buttons. Now I think to do my "form" asking the user how he would like to create his button, I should use IB right?

    Is there any place where I could see how to correctly link from IB to real code?
    I am sure Apple's help contains all that, bu I am searching for kind of a straightforward method to make this simple, easy and functional ASAP.

    Thanks for any help that come up
