NSView loaded from bundle won't draw... - Joseph Duchesne - Feb 11, 2006 11:26 PM
I am trying to load an NSScreenSaverView and display it in a PrefPane much like Apple's screensaver prefpane's screenssaver preview. I am loading the screensaver bundle and I know that the bundle is loading correctly because I have put an NSLog in a custom screensaver and it is being displayed in the console when I run this PrefPane.
Here's the function where I put my code and the code:
The description displays properly, the initWithFrame: function is run on the bundle, but I can't get "theStupidView", (IBOutlet id theStupidView to display. Yes, I'm frusterated . My .h file is linked to DesktopSaverPref in IB. The loaded class is a ScreenSaverView, a subclass of NSView. I really don't understand why it isn't drawing anything.

You're trying to set an outlet to a different view and hope that the view the outlet was set to changes. This is not possible. Instead, you'll need to add the view to the view hierarchy, i.e. determine a view that it should be a subview of and then use addSubview, replaceSubview or a similar method to add the view there.
