Using UIProgressView as a Progress indicator for goals

I've tried figuring this out on my own, and am completely clueless as to how to accomplish it. Essentially what I'm trying to do is this: The Overall Goal: Use the UIProgressView as a "different type" of indicator than what it's meant for. Details: When a user 'completes' a 'goal' (by pressing a UIButton named "complete" in a separate UIViewController, let's call this one "View Controller 1") I'd like it to update a UIProgressView in a second UIViewController (call this one "View Controller 2"). There are several UIProgressViews in View Controller 2, each representing the # of goals in a category 'completed'. So I'd like to have a void method in View Controller 2 like this:

 (void)progressMade:(NSString *)category
   categoryOneProgressView.progress += 1/8 ;
   //this would be called from View Controller 1, after the "complete" button was pressed.

Thank you in advance for your help.


What you can do is on Touching of Button in VIEW CONTROLLER 1 you store the Value of the goals completed in a particular category. Example Code for View Controller 1:

-(void)methodTriggeredOnCompleted:(NSString *)category
    //Do you calculation for progress of a category 

    NSUserDefaults *defaults = [NSUserDefaults standardUserDefaults];

    [defaults setValue:saveProgressValue forKey:category];
    [defaults synchronize];

Now in View Controller 2 what you should do is in ViewDidLoad method or in ViewWillAppear method you should get the value you stored in NSUserDefaults and update it in progress bar value

    NSUserDefaults *defaults = [NSUserDefaults standardUserDefaults];
    int val = [defaults valueForKey:category];
    categoryOneProgressBar.progress = val;
