Objective-C - Passing Multiple Parameters

So up until now i would just pass any parameter i need via the buttons tag. However now i am using the tag already for something else so i need to be able to pass another string and a timer value with the tag to a void or action of some kind when you select the button.

This is my current button code for passing the buttons tag with to the action (below)

[mybtn addTarget:self action:@selector(action:) forControlEvents:UIControlEventTouchUpInside];

This is the void or action i am passing it to.

NSLog(@"%d", [btn tag]);

So is there a way i can pass more than just the buttons tag (like a string) to the action? so i could have something like this.

-(void)action:(UIButton*)btn :myString{
NSLog(@"%d %@", [btn tag], myString);

So now thanks to the suggestion my void looks like this

-(void)actionWithButton:(UIButton *)btn andString:(NSString *)myString{
NSLog(@"%d %@", [btn tag], myString);

But i still don't know how to pass the myString parameter in the @selector part of the button.


You can add an UILable as a subView to that Button like

 UILabel *lblValue = [[UILabel alloc]initWithFrame:CGRectMake(0,0,0,0)];
 lblValue.text = myString;
 [objInputButton addSubview:lblValue];

and you get your string in your Action method like below

     for(UILabel *lable in [btn subViews])
              if([lable tag]==2)
                         //get your string from lable
