    I'm just learning how to use xcode and IB so please excuse my question if its too newbie.

    I have an action:

    -(IBAction) textFieldDoneEditing: (id)sender
    [sender resignFirstResponder];

    and as it might be familiar to all of you, i am trying to get rid of the keyboard when the user clicks on "Done"... its working except not in dot notation... if i wanted to use dot notation instead of the "classic" way above, how would i do it?

    (the commented ones are the ones i tried... needless to say, they dont work)

    That syntax should only be used for @properties. While it might work in some situations outside of that, it should be reserved for @properties only. So just use
    [sender resignFirstResponder];
