Automatic incremental build number in xCode 4.3


I have always wondered how to get a better build number in my projects, instead of having to change is manually. So, I finally googled it and found a solution. Or better yet, found several… but none working for xCode 4.3.

In xCode 4.3 you can actually change the build number manually in the project settings. I have not found a solution yet to activate an automatic build number update, however I have not search so much for that either.

XCode 4: CoreData Tab Bar Application template


When apples released its XCode application, it never added CoreData support to the Tab Bar Application template… although, in my case I usually want this feature. So… now I need to create a Tab Bar Application and a Window-based Application and copy the CoreData stuff from one to the other.
This is, off course, very annoying. So, what I want is to adapt the current templates to support even Core Data… “F*cking hell, this is most likely a mess to get working”… but I was wrong.
It is much easier to do in XCode 4 then it is in XCode 3.x. I am not going to cover XCode 3 cause I have gone over to the dark side (= XCode 4).

So, lets get started.

Now I only have to add about 70 more annotations and we’re done.

Here are some screenshots:
