View Full Version : Having problem adding UINavigationController in UIViewController

Jul 24, 2008, 02:35 PM
Hi Guys,

I'm working on my 1st iPhone App and stuck on a weird problem.

The app is a simple Utility app (like Weather or Stock) based on SDK's Utility Application Template. It has MainView, FlipsideView and an Info button to toggle each other. I also got the toggleView() function for free from template.

The view hierarchy from template is like this:
InfoButton, MainView, FlipsideView

All 3 views (RootView, MainView and FlipsideView) are simple UIView. Now I want to replace FlipsideView with a NavigationView (because I need provide drill down settings pages, which obviously should be put into a navigationController). But when I did that, I got the UI look like this:

Status Bar (20px)
Blank Space (20px)
Navigation Bar
TopView of NavigationController

I assume, normally NavigationController.view should be directly put into UIWindow so the real status bar will cover that blank space. But in my case, it belongs to a normal UIView (RootView) which already been pushed down by the status bar.

Anyone has the similar issue? Do you know if there any workaround?
