This is on iOS5 w/ a storyboard.
I'd like to have a
UINavigationController on the
UITableView below but when I try the "embed in" option, it adds it to the Red
UIView, not on the table itself. For lots of reasons this is not optimal. Is what I want to do not possible: to have a table subview with its own nav controller?
Oh - while I am here - what is the deal with
UINavigationControllers not being able to be resized in a storyboard? I can only set "form" "page" or "full" - when I set it to "freeform" I am not able to enter any values to resize it
For lots of reasons this is not optimal
Actually, for lots of reasons what you are trying to do makes no sense. A UINavigationController has embedded within it (in Storyboard terms) an instance of a UIViewController. In other words, the nav controller's root view controller must be a view controller. Since UITableView is a subclass of UIView, you can't embed it inside a UINavigationController. And besides, you would never want to. A UINavigationController manages a hiearchy of view controllers. What are you trying to achieve that you think you need to put a UITableView inside of a UINavigationController? What you are probably trying to achieve is to place the view controller that the table view sits on inside a UINavigationController, in which case the result you're seeing in IB is the correct result.
UITableViewController'sview have to be embeded in a
UINavigationControllerin order to use the Apple HIG method for editing cells? (Delete/Done buttons, red bar in a circle icon, etc.). The "red window" is a
UIViewControllerin the storyboard that I load on the fly with
instantiateViewControllerWithIdentifier. If I don't need to use a nav controller, that would be just fine - No Grabbing 2012-04-03 22:53
UINavigationController is a view controller, not a view, so you can't embed it inside a view.
You should be able to get what you want with a little code: you can't embed it inside Xcode, but you can set up the UINavigationController and the red view separately, then write a few lines like this:
navigationController.view.frame = CGRectMake(20, 20, 280, 300); [redView addSubview:navigationController.view];
