    Hello, I'm new to programming on the iPhone and I've run into a problem.

    I've implemented a navigation bar that pushes and pops views. However here is my issue:

    current stack of views: [view 1, view 2, view 3]
    target stack of views: [view 1, view 2, view 4]

    In other words, I understand the basics of how to push/pop views with the navigation bar, but is there a way to basically switch the top view?

    This is what I've tried, but it does not work. I think what these two lines of code do is get rid of the top view, then add a new view ON TOP of the view I just got rid of. In other words, these two lines result in the stack being [view 1, view 2] and do not work as I intended.

    [self.navigationController popViewControllerAnimated:NO];
    [self.navigationController pushViewController:newView animated:NO];

    Okay, I solved the problem! I added a pointer to the view 2's class to the headers of view 3 (and view 4).

    So when I'm at [view 1, view 2] before I push view 3, i set view 3's point to view 2 so I have a reference to the "parent" class (like in ActionScript). Then, the code becomes:

    [self.navigationController popViewControllerAnimated:NO];
    [mainController.navigationController pushViewController:newView animated:NO];
    Where "mainController" is just a reference to view 2 and newView is the newly created view 4, allowing me to go from

    [view 1, view 2, view 3]


    [view 1, view 2, view 4]
