I am trying to fit a large width UIView inside a scroll view. 87600 to be precise. when i do this, the view seems to disappear, but when i hard code the width to 1200 it appears, why is it so ? is there a max width for a view ? i am setting the contentview size, and it seems to work though ! Code: CGRect rect = sv.frame; int rectwidth = rect.size.width / kMaxColsPerWindow; rect.size.width = rectwidth * count; [sv setContentSize:rect.size]; rect.origin.x = 0; rect.origin.y = 0; viewLarge.frame = CGRectMake(0, 0, rect.size.width, rect.size.height); regards ---------- with a bit trial and error i discovered that width 16384 works fine but 16385 makes it disappear !
