    I have a table view inside a View Controller. I can populate all my information inside the table view. However I am a bit lost for setting up the detail views. I believe each table cell needs a segue to a each detail view but not completely sure.

    Here is my code. What am I missing to accomplish the segue from the table view to the detail views?
    @interface DetailViewController : UIViewController <UITableViewDelegate, UITableViewDataSource> {
        IBOutlet UITableView *myTable;
        NSMutableArray *contentArray;
    @property (strong, nonatomic) IBOutlet UITableView *myTable;
    - (void)viewDidLoad
        contentArray = [[NSMutableArray alloc]init];
        [contentArray addObject:@"Espresso"];
        [contentArray addObject:@"Latte"];
        [contentArray addObject:@"Capicino"];
        [super viewDidLoad];
    	// Do any additional setup after loading the view.
    //Table Information
    - (NSInteger)numberOfSectionsInTableView:(UITableView *)tableView
        return 1;
    - (NSInteger)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView numberOfRowsInSection:(NSInteger)section
        return [contentArray count];
    - (void)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView didSelectRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath {
        [tableView deselectRowAtIndexPath:indexPath animated:YES];
        if([[contentArray objectAtIndex:indexPath.row] isEqualToString:@"EspressoViewController"])
            EspressoViewController *espresso = [[EspressoViewController alloc] initWithNibName:@"EspressoViewController" bundle:nil];
            [self.navigationController pushViewController:espresso animated:YES];
        else if ([[contentArray objectAtIndex:indexPath.row] isEqualToString:@"Latte"])
            LatteViewController *latte = [[LatteViewController alloc] initWithNibName:@"Latte" bundle:nil];
            [self.navigationController pushViewController:latte animated:YES];
    - (void)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView accessoryButtonTappedForRowWithIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath {
    	[self tableView:tableView didSelectRowAtIndexPath:indexPath];
    - (UITableViewCell *)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath
        static NSString *CellIdentifier = @"Cell";
        UITableViewCell *cell = [tableView dequeueReusableCellWithIdentifier:CellIdentifier];
        if (cell == nil) {
            cell = [[UITableViewCell alloc] initWithStyle:UITableViewCellStyleSubtitle reuseIdentifier:@"CellIdentifier"];
        NSString *cellValue = [contentArray objectAtIndex:indexPath.row];
    	cell.textLabel.text = cellValue;
        cell.accessoryType = UITableViewCellAccessoryDisclosureIndicator;
        cell.textLabel.font = [UIFont systemFontOfSize:16];
        cell.detailTextLabel.text = @"Hot and ready";
        UIImage *image = [UIImage imageNamed:@"coffeeButton.png"];
        cell.imageView.image = image;
        cell.textLabel.text = [contentArray objectAtIndex:indexPath.row];
        return cell;

    Isn't it better to just create 1 Detail view, and populate that?
    So make your controller, set a public variable, or create your own INIT method, create it with a property, so the detail view knows like "I'm a coffee, latte, espresso, whatever", if I am X, then show Y, if I am A, show me B. and so on.

    Following up

    I understand creating a single view that will display the different cell information. I initially thought that would be the best way. However I am still learning and not really sure how the coding would look.

    I know to create a new file which I will call informationViewController.

    What would be a public variable?

    I know to create an @property and then to synthesis it in the .m file.

    Would I put the if x then show y in the - (void)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView didSelectRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath?

    Does the if x then y code look something like this?

    InformationViewController *information = [[InformationViewController alloc]initWithNibName:mad:"InformationViewController" bundle:nil];
    if ([[contentArray objectAtIndex:indexPath.row]isEqual:mad:"Espresso"]) {
    information.coffeeInt = 0;
    [information setTitle:[contentArray objectAtIndex:indexPath.row]];
