(Don't know if this is the right place to post; if not, mods- I'm sorry!)


So I finally got the Lion upgrade, and then installed the latest version of Xcode 4(4.2 I think it is). However, the books that i also bought(apparently for Xcode 4) often talk about opening a 'window based application.' for most of their programs.
However, I don't see that - the 2 closest resemblences are 'empty application' and 'single view application'; And in both, I don't see the ViewController.xib I need to help run my program.

Any help where the view controller.xib thing may be would be great! Thanks!

The latest version of Xcode is 4.3.3. But, I believe what you want is a 'single view application' but be sure to turn off the Storyboard option during project creation. That should give you the ViewController.xib you seek.

Thank you kind sirs :)

Can i turn the option off after the application is already in process(Ive written some of the codes) or do I have to start a new application and close it from there?

I don't think you can turn off storyboards after project creation, but you can create XIBs outside of the storyboard. I suggest, for you, the easiest would be to start a new project, though.
