    Default [Q] Doent app but with non-doent opening window - how to do it?

    {Also posted on Cocoa-Dev}

    I'm starting a new project that is to be a Cocoa Multi-window Doent
    app.
    When the project is created there is a MyDoent class and that's just
    fine for me to use for doents.

    But when I launch the app I don't want a doent to be opened.
    Instead I wish to display an index page in the form of a tabbed window
    with the alphabet on the tabs (ABC DEF GHI etc...) and then have the
    user select an item from one of those tabbed panes (panels?).

    At present my thinking is to make just the two nibs work for me with the
    MainMenu holding my opening index window and the MyDoent nib hold all
    the other windows (each with their own window controller).

    So I used InterfaceBuilder to make such a window in the MainMenu.nib and
    return that in windowNibName. But I get all kinds of errors (missing
    target connections) when building.

    Obviously I am not understanding something here and so far have not
    found the correct topic in the on-line doentation at Apple.

    I have the O'Reilly Learning Cocoa , the Hillegass and the Vermont
    Recipes books but so far haven't found what I need to know.

    Can you please point me at what I should be reading and/or some example
    code (it's not obvious to me which of the examples is the one to
    examine).

    TIA for your help and

    respect....

    Oh my mistake. I thought cross posting was between news groups not
    between news and mail lists.

    They are two different communities as far as I can tell although some
    people read both. Although we get ignorant replies in both as well.

    Thanks for correcting me and please be sure to add my name to your kill
    file.

    respect...

    Peter,

    Matt *is* right though, cross-posting between NGs and mailing lists can
    be just as annoying. After all, the communities aren't 100% separate.
    Just post in one (the most appropriate forum where you think you're the
    most likely to get a good response) and then wait. Only when you haven't
    received an answer there, go somewhere else.

    Cheers,
