        Hi guys, I'm having a headache with this bug.

         

        I installed Mac OS Catalina beta 4 and Xcode 11 beta 4. The problem is that when I create a new UIViewController with xib enabled, Actions and Outlets don't show up at IB. Not sure what is happening.

         

        I though it was a bug from Xcode 11. I installed Xcode 10.3 and it's still happening!

         

        Any ideas?

         

        Here is my vc code :/ This really weird

         

        import UIKit
        
        class AViewController: UIViewController {
        
            @IBOutlet weak var aLabel: UILabel!
            
            override func viewDidLoad() {
                super.viewDidLoad()
        
                // Do any additional setup after loading the view.
            }
        
        
            /*
            // MARK: - Navigation
        
            // In a storyboard-based application, you will often want to do a little preparation before navigation
            override func prepare(for segue: UIStoryboardSegue, sender: Any?) {
                // Get the new view controller using segue.destination.
                // Pass the selected object to the new view controller.
            }
            */
        
        }

          Actions and Outlets don't show up at IB

           

          What do you mean ? Sorry if that's basic questions:

          - That when you control drag from IB to code, you don't get the pop up with IBAction or IBOutlet ?

               If so, have you properly defined the class of the UIViewController in IB as being AViewController

           

          - That you cannot connect from the object in IB to the IBOutlet you have defined in code ?

               Same check to be done,

               plus making sure that object in IB has the correct type

              Hi @Claude31, let me clarify:

               

              I created a new flie of type UIViewController, with create xib option enabled.

               

              After that, I added an IBOutlet as follows:

              @IBOutlet weak var aLabel: UILabel!

               

              When I go to my xib, there is no Outlet to be connected in the Connections Inspector with name aLabel. I can only see my view with a warning sign at the right.

               

              My AViewController is correctly set on the Identity and Attributes inspector

                  If I understand correctly what you've done so far,

                  you created a file for a subclass of UIViewController (I assume you called it MyViewController)

                  you created a xib dedicated to its UIViewController ; that means it is not in the storryboard.

                  So, you have 2 files: MyViewController.swift and MyViewController.xib

                  Exact ?

                   

                  If so, you should:

                  - check that the file owner is of MyViewController.xib  class is MyViewController

                  - create a UILabel in the xib file, by dragging a UILabel object inside in IB

                  - drag from the white circle on the left of

                       @IBOutlet weak var aLabel: UILabel!

                  to the UILabel in IB

                   

                  Note: why didn't you create the UIViewController in the storyboard ?

                  To do so:

                  - keep MyViewController.swift file

                  - remove MyViewController.xib

                  - in the storyboard, drag a ViewController

                  - select it, open the identity inspector

                  - set the class to MyViewController

                    I am having this same issue with a new ViewController in XCode11. Everything is set up correct, and I have checked it 100 times. Did you find a solution?

                  Hi guys, this was finally solved. It was an Xcode bug. Just update to Mac OS Catalina beta 5 and Xcode 11 beta 5. You may have to remove your files and add them again for this to work
