Personally I would do it the following way but it is not easily achieved if you are a novice.I currently have all of the data in a spreadsheet file. Which ever method is easier i would like to start with. Either the data is stored within the app or on a external internet file. How easy is it to switch between the to in the future? Which is easier to program?
There is a lot, seemingly, going on in that picture. I think you should explain in more detail what the functionality of this screen is, and what part of it you would like more help with.I am trying to make a searchable database similar to the one in the picture i have attached.
I wouldn't say any of the above comments are making it more complicated but for what you require you will need to make use of some kind of data store, whether it be a local/remote database or a NSDictionary object, it all still applies, you cannot simply add an excel document and expect it to work without creating some kind of query that accepts parameters from the different user interface objects. Where you store the data is up to you, personally mine would either be SQLite locally or MySQL on a remote server depending how often the data will change.Some of you guys, thou being very helpful, are making this a little more complicated. Basically what i want that is similar to the picture i posted is.
-Have multiple search options
-Example if i was making a database on dogs i can search what dogs have brown hair, and it would give me a list of all dogs that have brown hair
-Example 2. I want to search what dogs have brown hair and are large.
I don't mind sending in the app for updates i have it all in a database which is easier so i can just say upload my excel database to whatever Xcode database i need to.
Looks like you need to learn the basics of iOS development and xCode, from viewing basic tutorials you will be able to create a simple user interface like the one above.Using the info i have figured out how to use MySQL and how to import my database. But i cannot figure out how to get my app to function like the one above. I don't know how to make a page look like those tabs and add a search button.
Does anyone know any place i can find Good instructions, documentation, or instructional videos on Xcode for this area?
