Binding Prefs and AS Studio

I read the summary at

about binding prefs to AS Studio objects.

I’ve got it working now, but only using the AS code that was illustrated. I couldn’t get any of the IB settings to do anything.

Reading the Apple documentation, their example is done in a Cocoa Document app that requires no code whatsoever.

Does IB’s Bindings settings actually do anything in a AS Studio app, since you have to write the “make new default entry” code and set and get the default values in code anyway?

I only had one default string I wanted to persist across launches, and it works fine to store it and load it using “user defaults”, but I couldn’t see anything happening when I set the binding key path and other settings in IB for that interface object, a text field.
