stringByAppendingString question. - hypnotx - Jun 29, 2007 02:15 PM
What am I doing wrong here? The code I am testing compiles and runs but I end up with an empty string for gameNumberList. The line in question is:

gameNumberList = [NSMutableString alloc];
gameNumberList = [[NSMutableString alloc] init];

Caught that right after posting but I still do not get anything when trying:
Watching it in debug and everything is fine just nothing goes into gameNumberList. I am wondering if I should be appending the string differently.

I'm willing to bet that stringByAppendingString is working perfectly here, it's just not what you want to use in the first place. stringByAppendingString returns a new string, but it doesn't change the target. You want appendString: instead.

Yep. appendString: seems to work. Course now I have an infinite loop to fix but getting a little closer. Thanks.
