    Discussion

    If the label is a method name of the form setValue: (where Value can be anything), that method is called on the source object. The parameter passed to that method is the destination object.

    If the label contains the name of an outlet, this method sets the value of the outlet to the destination object. The outlet must specify an instance variable in the source object.
