Hello all,


I'm trying to play an animation when a button is pressed. I successfully have this section of code running:

// Load images
    NSArray *imageNames = @[@"win_1.png", @"win_2.png", @"win_3.png", @"win_4.png",
                            @"win_5.png", @"win_6.png", @"win_7.png", @"win_8.png",
                            @"win_9.png", @"win_10.png", @"win_11.png", @"win_12.png",
                            @"win_13.png", @"win_14.png", @"win_15.png", @"win_16.png"];
    NSMutableArray *images = [[NSMutableArray alloc] init];
    for (int i = 0; i < imageNames.count; i++) {
        [images addObject:[UIImage imageNamed:[imageNames objectAtIndex:i]]];
    // Normal Animation
    UIImageView *animationImageView = [[UIImageView alloc] initWithFrame:CGRectMake(60, 95, 86, 193)];
    animationImageView.animationImages = images;
    animationImageView.animationDuration = 1;
    [self.view addSubview:animationImageView];
    [animationImageView startAnimating];

But the problem is i cannot get it to run within a method so i can call it when needed.


I have narrowed the problem down to the second to last line. Where it says "self.view". I'm not sure what to change this to, i know it needs to be an object, but an object of what??


Can anyone offer any help??





P.s i am a beginner with iPhone development so please be patient with me.

I'm not sure, but I think for calling it from a method  you need to work with self.view.superview, since .view is like local, that's why when you get it out of context it doesn't work
