    i am using NSOutlineView with custom NSCell, in the delegate function below, how do we get the index number, because i need to set different values of the cell for different row(like image and text), but here each time the item will be Nil, so how can i get the index number and how do i know which row i am returning the cell.

    -(NSCell *)outlineView:(NSOutlineView *)outlineview
    dataCellForTableColumn:(NSTableColumn *)tableColumn

    and also my tableView is always nil. what can be the problem.
