Example text

And that is correct. The problem is that the EA framework uses another definition of protocol. What’s worse is that the EA framework actually uses both definitions of protocol. First, let’s make sure you understand Cocoa’s use of protocols. Protocols provide a mechanism for objects to communicate with each other. This interprocess communication comes about through the use of Objective-C messages. The UIApplication Delegate protocol fits the bill as the most common and frequently used protocol. It’s one you see in almost any app you build.

Depending on what eventCode was received you take one of several actions. But first, you need to create the streams and that is done in three steps for each (input and output) stream. This is where you use the if (session) statement. if (session) { [[session inputStream] setDelegate:self]; [[session inputStream] scheduleInRunLoop:[NSRunLoop currentRunLoop] forMode:NSDefaultRunLoopMode]; [[session inputStream] open]; [[session outputStream] setDelegate:self]; [[session outputStream] scheduleInRunLoop:[NSRunLoop currentRunLoop] forMode:NSDefaultRunLoopMode]; [[session outputStream] open]; } else { NSLog(@"creating session failed"); } Most likely, you will include the preceding code within your method that handles the opening of the EASession.

At eight bits per byte this gives you 256 possible commands; plenty more than the handful you need. So what is the additional information? Let’s consider the command to turn on an LED. In actuality, you need to be able to turn the LED on or off. You could have a command for each or you could have a single command with a parameter to say whether you want the LED to turn on or off. Similarly, if you had multiple LEDs on the accessory, you might have an additional information field that tells you which LED to command.
