  • How can I change the name of item in TableViewController iOS

    How can I change the name of item in TableViewController? I want to be able to change the title of an item if I added one. Code:

    These outlets to the buttons use a `strong` reference instead of `weak` because we want
    to keep the buttons around even if they're not inside a view.

    Hey JB001,
    Sounds like you have more going on than just a simple issue with Home Sharing and more dealing with Wi-Fi syncing. Start with the article below and see if that may resolve it.

    http://support.apple.com/kb/TS4062
    If it does not work out, then may I suggest contacting Apple for further assistance to walk you through it or just take that time that you were talking about to sort it out.

  • How can I change the name of my home folder?

    Just got a new job. Yeah! Taken over former employees' iMac. I made myself Administrator, seem to be the only log in option. But, my home folder is still in the old guys name. How can I change the name on the Home folder without deleting it and loose all the files? CAN'T loose the files?  Help...
    Thanks

    Changing the existing home folder name is complicated. I recommend you NOT do that.
    Instead, create a new User with exactly the home folder name you want, and copy your files over to that new user. Once a few days have gone by trouble-free, and you are certain you have no issues, you can delete the old home folder.
    While on the subject of users, Some users prefer the peace-of-mind of using an "ordinary" user account, rather than an Admin account for daily use. This makes it much harder for anything to "sneak" onto your Mac, as you need to authenticate anything to be installed in system directories.
    To do this, create a new Admin user, log into it, and demote your daily-use account to a non-Admin user. When actively installing stuff, the Admin username and password will be requested.

  • How can I change the name of a computer I'm getting rid of?

    How can I change the name of the computer to my granddaughter's name? It's now called "My name" G5 iMac. I would also like to delete that computer icon in my Devices on my MacbookPro.

    I guess my reply to these questions in your other topic did not help?
    The name of the computer is in System Preferences Sharing pane.
    If something appears under DEVICES in a Finder window sidebar, you can click hold on it and drag it off the sidebar. If it appears under SHARED, it should no longer appear there once if that iMac is no longer on your local network, or if you turn off its shared services in the Sharing pane.

  • How can I change the name of a Sub Circuit in Multisim

    How can I change the name of a sub-circuit in MultiSim?  
    For example:
    I have a sub-circuit named "Output Channel 1" and its RefDes is SC1.  How do I change its name to 'Input Channel 1'?

    Hi,
    If what you want to change is the RefDes you can do it by right-clicking the sub-circuit and selecting properties. If what you want to change is the name, you can right-click the sub-circuit in the Design Toolbox.

  • How can I change the name that my computer/iTunes assigned to my device?

    When I hooked up my new 4s to my desktop, it asked if I wanted to start with a new device.  I answered yes and the device was assigned a default name based on the name of the computer (which wasn't originally mine) so now iTunes recognizes the device as belonging to some dead guy I never met.  Also the same first name as an ex-bf.  Call me weird but this bothers me.  How can I change the name of the device?

    Select the device when it is connected to iTunes. Click in the device name on the summary tab. Enter what you want.

    Connect your iPod to the computer. Once it shows up in the source list of iTunes (the window on the left where you see "library", "playlists", "podcasts" etc), double click on it and this will highlight it and you can then type a name for it.
