14.4 Editing and saving code

14.4.2 Editing code

Choose View > Code to switch to the code view. You can use this view to display and edit the code that is generated by the interface builder. The interface builder appears as shown in Figure 14.5.

Figure 14.5 Displaying source code in the interface builder

Like the other views in the interface builder, an Interface area at the top of the code view displays the name of the current interface. See Section 14.2.1 for details.

The rest of this view is dedicated to a Code area. This is an editor window that displays the code generated for the interface. Like other editor windows in the environment, all the keyboard commands available in the built-in editor are available in the Code area.

If you want to change the definition of the current interface by editing the source code directly, edit the code in the Code area and then click Update. Any changes you have made are reflected in the interface skeleton.
