I was a bit thrown off as to why grossSales needed to be retained… It’s a property just like Title, Year, or Rating, those did not require retaining, so why does grossSales?
I felt that the screencast was not very clear on when to use @property(retain) vs. @property(copy) vs. @property(assign).. Nor did it mention anything about the other attributes that the @property declaration uses “nonatomic” / “atomic” / “readwrite” / etc.
I gotta say I am a bit disappointed… I feel that I already understood the basics prior to watching this screencast, and was hoping to get some deeper clarity and have some of my unanswered questions addressed, but… It didn’t really happen.
If only it would have done something like:
“let’s take @property(…) int year and set that to [assign, copy, retain] and by doing this, it means that …….. and that we can see this by going over here and looking at ……… “ etc
