View Full Version : UIScrollView untouchable as subclass, fine normally

Apr 28, 2011, 08:27 AM
I had a working scrollview, but decided to create it from a subclass to make my code look tidy. It worked fine before, it could scroll and the UIButtons in it worked fine.

Loading it as a subclass, it loads and displays correctly but it will not scroll any more nor will the buttons touch. I guess something is in front of it, blocking any touch but, from what I have written, there is nothing in front and it should work fine.

I am on the move now, and can post some code if anyone would like to see. But I'm sure I am just missing some line of code? As I said the scroll view was working perfectly fine before hand, so there is nothing missing from that.


EDIT: Code below

#import <UIKit/UIKit.h>
#import "MyScrollView.h"

@interface AppgViewController : UIViewController <NSXMLParserDelegate, UIScrollViewDelegate> {
// Parsing the XML
NSXMLParser *xmlParser;

// Tab bar icons
UIButton *button_TabBarOne, *button_TabBarTwo, *button_TabBarThree, *button_TabBarFour;
UIImageView *imageview_TabBarOne, *imageview_TabBarTwo, *imageview_TabBarThree, *imageview_TabBarFour;

MyScrollView *myScrollView;

@property (nonatomic, retain) UIButton *button_TabBarOne, *button_TabBarTwo, *button_TabBarThree, *button_TabBarFour;
@property (nonatomic, retain) UIImageView *imageview_TabBarOne, *imageview_TabBarTwo, *imageview_TabBarThree, *imageview_TabBarFour;
@property (nonatomic, retain) MyScrollView *myScrollView;

- (void)fadeOut;
- (void)addTabBar;
- (void)loadRScrollView;
- (void)parseXML;

@synthesize button_TabBarOne, button_TabBarTwo, button_TabBarThree, button_TabBarFour;

[self loadScrollView];

[super viewDidLoad];

myScrollView = [[MyScrollView alloc] init];

[self.view bringSubviewToFront:myScrollView];
myScrollView.userInteractionEnabled = YES;

scrollview_One.showsHorizontalScrollIndicator = scrollview_One.showsVerticalScrollIndicator = NO;
scrollview_One.contentSize = CGSizeMake(205, 685);

scrollview_One.backgroundColor = [UIColor grayColor];

button_Five.frame = CGRectMake(0, 800, 205, 137);
[button_Five setImage:[UIImage imageNamed:@"thumb_014.jpg"] forState:UIControlStateNormal];

[scrollview_One addSubview:button_One];
[scrollview_One addSubview:button_Two];
[scrollview_One addSubview:button_Three];

This does not make sense. If you want the buttons to slide around with the scroll view, you make them subviews of the content view. If you want them to be fixed in place above the scroll view, you make the subviews of the superview (MyScrollView). Generally speaking, you do not add subviews to a scroll view. Its subviews are the content view and the clip view. Anything more and it gets confused.

I assume you have not written and delegate methods because you have not gotten around to it?
