For this program, you must also link to the Cocoa framework since you are using Cocoa to manage your UI elements for your Mac app.

You also want to code the action method that does something in response to a user click. window eontentView] addSubview: button]; This is something that you would do in the app delegate's didFinishLaunching delegate method. You can also set up the button UI by setting properties in this method: [button setTitle: @"Change Color"]; [button setButtonType:NSMomentaryLightButton]; [button setBezeIStyle:NSTexturedSquareBezeIStyle]; Buttons use the Target-Action design pattern to respond to user actions like a button click.

You can also set up the button UI by setting properties in this method: [button setTitle: @"Change Color"]; [button setButtonType:NSMomentaryLightButton]; [button setBezeIStyle:NSTexturedSquareBezeIStyle]; Buttons use the Target-Action design pattern to respond to user actions like a button click. Target-Action is a design pattern where the object has the information necessary to execute an action (a special sort of method). You need to tell the object which method contains the code that will execute in response to an action and where the method is located (the target).
