iOS - Calling App Delegate technique from ViewController

What I am trying to do is click a button (that was created in code) and have it call up a different view controller then have it run a function in the new view controller.

I know it could be done relatively easily in IB but that isn't an option.

An example of what I want to do would be if you had two view controllers one with a splash screen of house. The other view controller had a walk through of the house on it that you could go through all the rooms in a set order. The splash screen would have buttons for each room that would allow you to jump to any point on the walk through.

Just Follow these steps

1.import your app delegate in your class where you want app delegate object.

#import "YourAppDelegate.h"

2.inside your class create an instance of your app delegate object(Its basically a singleton).

YourAppDelegate *appDelegate=( YourAppDelegate* )[UIApplication sharedApplication].delegate;

3.Now invoke method using selector

if([appDelegate respondsToSelector:@selector(yourMethod)]){

        [appDelegate yourMethod];

or directly by

[appDelegate yourMethod];

for swift

let appdel : AppDelegate = UIApplication.shared.delegate as! AppDelegate

i will recommend the first one. Run and Go.

Sounds like you just need a UINavigationController setup?

You can get the AppDelegate anywhere in the program via

YourAppDelegateName* blah = (YourAppDelegateName*)[[UIApplication sharedApplication]delegate];

In your app delegate you should have your navigation controller setup, either via IB or in code.

In code, assuming you've created your 'House overview' viewcontroller already it would be something like this in your AppDelegate didFinishLaunchingWithOptions...

self.m_window = [[[UIWindow alloc]initWithFrame:[[UIScreen mainScreen]bounds] autorelease];
self.m_navigationController = [[[UINavigationController alloc]initWithRootViewController:homeViewController]autorelease];
[m_window addSubview:self.m_navigationController.view];

After this you just need a viewcontroller per 'room' and invoke the following when a button click event is picked up...

YourAppDelegateName* blah = (YourAppDelegateName*)[[UIApplication sharedApplication]delegate];
[blah.m_navigationController pushViewController:newRoomViewController animated:YES];

I've not tested the above code so forgive any syntax errors but hope the pseudo code is of help...

You can access the delegate like this:

MainClass *appDelegate = (MainClass *)[[UIApplication sharedApplication] delegate];

Replace MainClass with the name of your application class.

Then, provided you have a property for the other view controller, you can call something like:

[appDelegate.viewController someMethod];
