Learn the basics of Interface Builder for watchOS. In this video, add two buttons to the interface and learn about the stacking nature of the Interface Builder.
- [Instructor] Like iOS applications,…we'll first add some objects to the storyboard.…In this lesson, we will add two buttons to the interface.…In the object library, find a button…by typing BU in the filter.…The two types of button will appear.…Apple Pay is beyond the scope of this course,…so drag a generic button onto the storyboard.…You'll find it clicks into place…at the top of the watch interface.…watchOS does not use the same free layout…as iOS or MacOS storyboards.…
Objects stack from the top down.…Drag another button to the interface.…It stacks underneath the first.…Click on the top button.…On the right, the attributes inspector…shows the attributes available for a button.…In watchOS, many attributes can only be set here,…not in code as properties.…Click on the title, for example.…Change the title to Pizza and press return.…For the background color, click the color swatch…under Background and select the color list…and the Apple colors; and I'm going to select blue.…
Now select the second button.…You can double-click the button to change the title.…
