Hey,
This Objective-C method takes two parameters.
-replaceSubview:oldView with:newView;
replaceSubview is the method name
oldView is the first parameter name.
What is 'with' and 'newView'?
Thanks for help and time.

Objective-C uses smilies in its syntax?

It must take two parameters, replacing the first parameter in the object with the second parameter. It seems a peculiar method to write, passing a value which might or might not be a field of your object already, then another value to replace it with which might already be a field of your obect (or might not).
