Hi all. I have an mutableArray which displays a list of files in a tableView. I have stored those files in a directory.

I am using


class and


method to retrieve some properties of the files like fileSize, fileType..

In the second stage I am trying to have a detailView controller which displays the properties of the particular file when touched in the tableView.

The problem is I dont know how to bind those properties like fileSize and fileType separately to a


and make it display in the detailView for that particular file.

Here is my source code for listing the files and to list the properties.

- (void)listFiles {

    NSFileManager *fm =[NSFileManager defaultManager];
    NSError *error = nil;
    NSString *parentDirectory = @"/Users/akilan/Documents";
    NSArray *paths = [fm contentsOfDirectoryAtPath:parentDirectory error:&error];
    if (error) {
        NSLog(@"%@", [error localizedDescription]);
        error = nil;
    directoryContent = [[NSMutableArray alloc] init];
    for (NSString *path in paths){
        NSString *documentsDirectory = [[path lastPathComponent] stringByDeletingPathExtension];
        [directoryContent addObject:documentsDirectory];

-(void) willProcessPath {
    NSString *parentDirectory = @"/Users/akilan/Documents";
    NSArray *paths = [[NSFileManager defaultManager] contentsOfDirectoryAtPath:parentDirectory error:nil];
    for (NSString *path in paths){
        filesPath = [parentDirectory stringByAppendingPathComponent:path];
        NSDictionary *attrDir = [[NSFileManager defaultManager]attributesOfItemAtPath:filesPath error:nil];
        filesSize = [attrDir objectForKey:NSFileSize];
        filesName = (NSString *)directoryContent;
        filesType = [path pathExtension];
        createdDate = [attrDir objectForKey:NSFileCreationDate];
        modifiedDate = [attrDir objectForKey:NSFileModificationDate];

Please help me to proceed to the next step.. Thanks in advance..
