ok. im getting pretty pissed off. this should be easy to do. but i am obviously missing something i have a two view controllers with two views. in the first view there is a label. and in the second view there is a text field and a button. when i press that button i want the value of the label in the first view to be set to the value of the text box in the second view. so i basically have two classes and i want an attribute of one class to be equal to an attribute of the other class. but the label isnt changing value.
