I have a tab bar controller set up and it has navigation controller pages set each tab loads a separate xib On the first tab, I want to load a screen (for lack of a better word) that has a view on the top half of the screen with some text, etc... and I also want to load a tableview on the bottom half of the screen (this is in addition to the nav bar on top and tab bar on bottom). I want the top view to stay on the screen while the tableview is permitting to scroll. Can someone give me a bump in the right direction? I have made the page with the tableview by itself using a tableViewController in its own xib, but I can't add the other top half view on there like that. I've tried making just a viewcontroller with a top view and bottom table view and that will load with a blank table, but I'm uncertain how to get the data in there.
