    Thanks for the help on my last issue. Its working now. This is my last hurdle:

    My goal is to have two table view's and an info view all selectable via the bottom tab bar. Each cell in the table view's will take the user to details about what they have just tapped on.

    I have an app setup and working. It consists of 3 tab's. Two tabs display a tableview with a list of names from two plist files. These lists are in alphabetical order with an index. The third view simply shows my logo and details about the app.
    I would like to take the first view, a table view, and have it display details about the name that the user click on in the table. I want to keep my list grouped in ABC order and keep the index on the side. My details for each name are going to consists of many lines of text, and maybe a picture icon.

    I am having trouble finding a place to store this detail data and how to call it in when a user click on the related name in my first tableview.

    The second tableview is just a tableview, with no details.

    I have been stuck on this for days. Any help would be great!

    Are you getting any compiler warnings? What errors do you see on the console (⇧⌘R)?

    I don't get any of the yellow warnings or red errors, but in the Xcode status bar it says: terminating app due to uncaught exception

    OK, check out the console, it should have more detail about the exception to help identify the bit of code causing it.

    Thanks I figured out the blank screen issue. I didn't have rootView set in the right place in IB.

    I'd recommend starting a new thread in a situation like this. That way there is still a history in the old thread of what you were originally talking about, in case others come across something similar. Also, makes the replies to the posts less confusing.

    Good point. A bit less important now, seeing as I already erased most of my previous topic, renamed it, and now its bumped up. I'd hate to have two threads with the same title hoging the top of the iPhone Dev forum.
