locating a text file Objective C

enter image description here

I am trying to get path of legal.txt in my project. However, whatever I do. I am getting a null path back. it is in the Policies directory. How do I get it's path as a string. I need to send that path to a webview controller. Can someone help.

-(void)linkPressedOnTextView:(PPLinksTextView *)tv url:(NSURL *)url{

if ([ isEqualToString:@"sign_up"]) {
GetStartedController *getStartedVC = [[GetStartedController alloc] init];
[self.navigationController pushViewController:getStartedVC animated:YES];


else if([ isEqualToString:@"consentMedicalSevices"]){

PPNavigationViewController *vc = [[PPNavigationViewController alloc]init];
[vc openPolicies:@"Policies/privacy.txt"];

Will this work. I need a way to direct user to a webview once he clicks on the link and privacy text opens up.

From apple doc:


Returns the full pathname for the resource file identified by the specified name and extension and residing in a given bundle directory.

NSString *filePath = [NSBundle pathForResource:@"file" ofType:@"txt" inDirectory:[[NSBundle mainBundle] bundlePath]];
    NSLog(@"File Path:  %@", filePath);
