iOS app (this class is not key value coding-compliant for the key dataSource)

I'm making an iPhone app, and I'm working at this TableViewController, but when testing, I get this error, and I don't really know what to do with it:

2012-01-13 13:45:32.947 HandHistory Reviews[3422:707] ***
Terminating app due to uncaught exception 'NSUnknownKeyException',
reason: '[<SessionsTableViewController 0x191cb0> setValue:forUndefinedKey:]:
this class is not key value coding-compliant for the key dataSource.'

Anyone got an idea?

This is my SessionTableViewController.m file:

#import "SessionsTableViewController.h"
#import "Session.h"

@interface SessionsTableViewController()

@property (nonatomic, copy) NSArray *sessions;


@implementation SessionsTableViewController

@synthesize sessions = _sessions;

#pragma mark - View lifecycle

- (void)viewWillAppear:(BOOL)animated
[super viewWillAppear:animated];

NSMutableArray *sessions = [[NSMutableArray alloc] init];

// Looking for files
// Finding the Documents directory
NSArray *paths = NSSearchPathForDirectoriesInDomains(NSDocumentDirectory, NSUserDomainMask, YES);
NSString *path = [paths objectAtIndex:0];
NSArray *directoryContent = [[NSFileManager defaultManager] contentsOfDirectoryAtPath:path error:nil];

// Looping through each file in the directory
for (NSString *file in directoryContent)
NSString *contents = [NSString stringWithContentsOfFile:[[paths objectAtIndex:0] stringByAppendingPathComponent:file] encoding:NSUTF8StringEncoding error:nil];

Session *session = [[Session alloc] initWithName:file andContents:contents];

[sessions addObject:session];

self.sessions = sessions;

#pragma mark - Table view data source

- (NSInteger)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView numberOfRowsInSection:(NSInteger)section
return [self.sessions count];

- (UITableViewCell *)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath
static NSString *CellIdentifier = @"Session Cell";

UITableViewCell *cell = [tableView dequeueReusableCellWithIdentifier:CellIdentifier];
if (cell == nil) {
cell = [[UITableViewCell alloc] initWithStyle:UITableViewCellStyleDefault reuseIdentifier:CellIdentifier];

//cell.textLabel.text = [[self.sessions objectAtIndex:indexPath.row] name];
//cell.detailTextLabel.text = [[NSString alloc] initWithFormat:@"%d hands", 10];

return cell;

#pragma mark - Table view delegate

- (void)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView didSelectRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath
// Navigation logic may go here. Create and push another view controller.
<#DetailViewController#> *detailViewController = [[<#DetailViewController#> alloc] initWithNibName:@"<#Nib name#>" bundle:nil];
// ...
// Pass the selected object to the new view controller.
[self.navigationController pushViewController:detailViewController animated:YES];



It looks like you've wired things up in interface builder incorrectly. It appears you have attached something to an outlet called dataSource in your SessionsTableViewController. It looks like you probably wanted to do it the other way round as I assume you have a table view in SessionsTableViewController.

So, you need to attach the dataSource property of your table view to your instance of SessionsTableViewController (probably "File's Owner" in your case), rather than the other way round.
