    i open the interface builder under /developer/applications and then it says pick a project, i've picked all of the options in the first window, and all of them don't include the thing with the large window and all the things like pickers and switches and all the colorful stuff.

    i also opened a window project in xcode and went to Resources and opened MainWindow.xib, and it doesn't open there.

    what am i doing wrong??

    I don't quite understand your problem fully but...

    If Interface Builder is not opening up at all or there are no windows popping up then I would do:
    1. Check to see if the status bar has the Interface Builder controls and try opening up a file.

    OR

    2. If it just doesn't open up completely and there is nothing in the status bar then I would re-install the SDK

    Otherwise if you do get windows and you can't see the pickers and such that you are talking about, then most likely your Library and Inspector aren't open in Interface Builder. To open them go to the status bar and click 'Tools -> Library' and 'Tools -> Inspector.' You will need these 2 tools to build an Interface for an iPhone application.

    i opened up the interface builder, and only 2 things showed up, there are supposed to be 4. the ones that showed up were the iphone thing where you drag stuff and then another window.

    So you have the 2 windows. One is all white, right? Then the other has a couple icons that say 'File's Owner,' 'First Responder,' and 'Window' and some others? To get the other 2 windows you have to go to 'Tools -> Library' and 'Tools -> Inspector.' Then the other 2 windows should appear.
