Response to: RE: XCode please

Thanks Andrew,

I would just like to see you follow up with what you outlined at the end of the article. For example, updating the URL line.

I saw the 'Mac OS X State of the Union' video at ADC. Towards the end, it was demonstrated how to set up a browswer using WebKit very quickly. Using XCode, it was easy to set up the outlets from the UI elements to the WebView; but I don't understand how the new controller mechanism was used to do the reverse: update the UI from WebKit.

It would be great if you could explain not only WebKit, but something about how this new tool works.

    i've posted some code at http://end.com/BionicDOM that does something like this. it is a framework with an Interface Builder palette that lets you use Cocoa Bindings to access values in the WebView. the sample.nib file included implements a live CSS inspector panel entirely with bindings. (try running sample.nib in the Interface Builder simulator)
