If the source contains a method of the form setValue:, then that method is called with the destination as the argument. Otherwise, if the label is the name of an instance variable in the source, then that instance variable is set to the destination.

  • Establishes an outlet connection.


    - (void)establishConnection


    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.
