Please do not post the same thing multiple times. The board software automatically flags certain posts as needing moderator attention. This happens the most often for new users. I'm pretty sure this is made clear at the time you attempt to post. Posting the same thing over and over again just makes that many more posts the moderators have to weed through later. This makes us sad. Don't make us sad. If your post/thread doesn't appear, just wait a while. Don't post it again. If it hasn't shown up by the next day, then you can try again. I normally go through posts in the mornings, and try to check a few times throughout the day, but I'm not here 24/7. There will typically be a significant delay before posts are approved. Just be patient.
Hold on to local variable in ARC.
Suppose I have a variable that is not a member of any class and I still want to hold on to it when the function exits. E.g.
MyVC *a = [[MyVC alloc] init];
// add a.view to the app
// function exits
This approach causes problems since MyVC is released from memory. Is there a quick and dirty way to make it persist.
I understand that the pointer to *a is lost, but I'm OK with it for variables that I know I need for as long as the program is running.
