How to create own delegates..... (Protocol methods)

if u want to update any variable or call any method of any class for Eg. Class A). of your project while the control is working in any other class(for Eg. Class B), then you can do it by creating your own delegate/protocol in calling class, and Declare that method in that protocol n define that method in called class.... to elaborate lets see the code.....

Calling.h //First Class

@protocol myDelegate [NSObject]
- (void) doIt;

@interface Calling :
UIViewController {

id [
myDelegate] delegate;

@property(nonatomic, retain) id
[myDelegate] delegate;



#import " Calling.h"

#import " Called.h "

@implementation Calling

@synthesize delegate;

- (void)viewDidLoad {
[super viewDidLoad];

[delegate hideUnhideMenu];


Called.h // Class B

@interface Called : UIViewController
[myDelegate] {




#import " Called.h"

@implementation Called

- (void)viewDidLoad {
[super viewDidLoad];

Calling* obj = [[Calling alloc] init];
obj.delegate = self;

- (void)hideUnhideMenu {

//Do your updation here.


NOTE: please replace "[" type of brackets with "<".

  1. property attributes for delegate should be assign. By using retain you are creating retain cycle that will cause memory leak.
