Following Matt's example from the book, I was able to create a regular old NSTableView and bound the Core Data Email entity's values to each column in the tableview. This works great. What I'm now trying to do is make a single column tableview where each row will display a custom cell view constructed from my Core Data Email object.

With a regular old tableview this is easy, I'm just a little lost as to how to get a single column table view to render a custom cell view that uses Core Data binding to match my Email NSArray Controller.
