14 The Interface Builder

14.2 Creating an interface layout

Once you have created or loaded at least one interface, the interface builder displays the layouts view, as shown in Figure 14.3. You use this view to specify the entire GUI design, with the exception of the menus. Choose View > Layouts to swap to this view from any other in the interface builder.
