AIM with IOS

[ Edited ]

I am working on the AIM for ios and it throws me the following exception


            Terminating app due to uncaught exception 'NSInvalidArgumentException', reason: '+[NSString stringWithXMLTag:andValue:]: unrecognized selector sent to class


on the line:


            [AuthNet authNetWithEnvironment:ENV_TEST];


I set the above environment in my app delegate file.


My sample code is

#import "CreditTest.h"
#import "AuthNet.h"

@implementation CreditTest

- (void) loginToGateway {

    MobileDeviceRegistrationRequest *mobileDeviceRegistrationRequest = [MobileDeviceRegistrationRequest mobileDeviceRegistrationRequest];
    mobileDeviceRegistrationRequest.mobileDevice.mobileDeviceId = @"xxxxxxx";
    mobileDeviceRegistrationRequest.mobileDevice.mobileDescription = @"iPhone";
    mobileDeviceRegistrationRequest.mobileDevice.phoneNumber = @"xxxxxxx"; = @"xxxxxxx";
    mobileDeviceRegistrationRequest.anetApiRequest.merchantAuthentication.password = @"xxxxxxxx";
    MobileDeviceLoginRequest *mobileDeviceLoginRequest =
    [MobileDeviceLoginRequest mobileDeviceLoginRequest]; = @"xxxxxxx";
    mobileDeviceLoginRequest.anetApiRequest.merchantAuthentication.password = @"xxxxxxxxx";
    mobileDeviceLoginRequest.anetApiRequest.merchantAuthentication.mobileDeviceId =
    [[[UIDevice currentDevice] uniqueIdentifier]
     stringByReplacingOccurrencesOfString:@"-" withString:@"_"];
    AuthNet *an = [AuthNet getInstance];
    [an setDelegate:(id)self];
    [an mobileDeviceLoginRequest: mobileDeviceLoginRequest];

- (void) createTransaction {
    AuthNet *an = [AuthNet getInstance];
    [an setDelegate:(id)self];
    CreditCardType *creditCardType = [CreditCardType creditCardType];
    creditCardType.cardNumber = @"4111111111111111";
    creditCardType.cardCode = @"100";
    creditCardType.expirationDate = @"1212";
    PaymentType *paymentType = [PaymentType paymentType];
    paymentType.creditCard = creditCardType;
    ExtendedAmountType *extendedAmountTypeTax = [ExtendedAmountType extendedAmountType];
    extendedAmountTypeTax.amount = @"0"; = @"Tax";
    ExtendedAmountType *extendedAmountTypeShipping = [ExtendedAmountType extendedAmountType];
    extendedAmountTypeShipping.amount = @"0"; = @"Shipping";
    LineItemType *lineItem = [LineItemType lineItem];
    lineItem.itemName = @"Soda";
    lineItem.itemDescription = @"Soda";
    lineItem.itemQuantity = @"1";
    lineItem.itemPrice = @"1.00";
    lineItem.itemID = @"1";
    TransactionRequestType *requestType = [TransactionRequestType transactionRequest];
    requestType.lineItems = [NSArray arrayWithObject:lineItem];
    requestType.amount = @"1.00";
    requestType.payment = paymentType; = extendedAmountTypeTax;
    requestType.shipping = extendedAmountTypeShipping;
    CreateTransactionRequest *request = [CreateTransactionRequest createTransactionRequest];
    request.transactionRequest = requestType;
    request.transactionType = AUTH_ONLY;
    request.anetApiRequest.merchantAuthentication.mobileDeviceId =
    [[[UIDevice currentDevice] uniqueIdentifier]
     stringByReplacingOccurrencesOfString:@"-" withString:@"_"];
    request.anetApiRequest.merchantAuthentication.sessionToken = sessionToken;
    [an purchaseWithRequest:request];

- (void) requestFailed:(AuthNetResponse *)response {
    // Handle a failed request

- (void) connectionFailed:(AuthNetResponse *)response {
    // Handle a failed connection

- (void) paymentSucceeded:(CreateTransactionResponse *) response {
    // Handle payment success

- (void) mobileDeviceLoginSucceeded:(MobileDeviceLoginResponse *)response {
    sessionToken = [response.sessionToken retain];
    [self createTransaction];



Any help would be appreciated.


Thank You.

Re: AIM with IOS

Hi durga23588,

let me know one thing In your    - (void) loginToGateway    method.You haven't registered your device,means you are missing the code:

[an mobileDeviceRegistrationRequest:mobileDeviceRegistrationRequest]
Then my question is how could you manage to do mobile device login request.

with only this code.

 [an mobileDeviceLoginRequest:mobileDeviceLoginRequest];

I think before login to merchant account your device must be registered and it's the common thing.
Please let me know your valuable feedback.
Thanks in advance.
