We will cover setting up your development environment, creating the application using C# and MonoDevelop, and deploying the finished product. This course is designed to teach you how to use MonoTouch as an alternative to developing iOS applications in Objective-C.
Action Sheets and Alerts Hi this is John Sonmez from Pluralsight and in this module we are going to be talking about action sheets and alerts in MonoTouch. So let's go over what we are going to cover in this module. Well the first thing I want to do is talk a little bit about the general idea of an alert and action sheet, just basically in general in iOS and there's a little bit more of this information in the introduction to iOS course, but I want to cover kind of the concept here so you kind of know when you should be using these things and what they're used for. After we cover that, then I'm going to show you how to create an alert and one of the really nice things that I discovered upon using MonoTouch is that it's much easier to do alerts and action sheets in MonoTouch just because of the event handling and the way that you don't have to create additional classes in order to respond to events when you're using an alert or an action sheet. So I'm going to show you how to create an alert and we're going to breeze right through that because it's extremely simple to do in MonoTouch. Then once we've created our alert, then next thing that we're going to want to be able to do is to respond to that alert. So I'm going to show you how you can get user input from the alert, basically how you can figure out which button was clicked and then do something in response. Then we're going to basically take our alert and we're going to morph it into an action sheet. And you're going to find that action sheets and alerts are almost the same thing from a code perspective and so it'll be real easy for us to change our code and actually create an action sheet instead of an alert. Then finally, I'll go through and I'll show you how to respond to an action sheet, which is again, going to be very similar to what we are going to do with the alerts.
