    Hi all.

    In my iPhone app, i added some textFields as ContentView of a UITableViewCell. Everything is working fine , but when i touch the textField and scroll (MagnifyGlass Mode) the cursor is not scrolling...

    Say my textfields contains "MYTEXT".

    Assume my cursor is like this MYTEX|T

    If i touch (MAGNIFY GLASS came) and scroll left my cursor is supposed to move thru "E" "T" "Y" "M" etc.. But its not happening...

    There is an issue with swipe gestures in table views that is probably the cause. With any of several classes that I've tried if you place them in tableviewcells, the table, somehow, steals any touches that are left or right swipes. The control gets a touchesBegan and then nothing after that. I don't know of a workaround. I noticed this for UIButton and UITextField.

    I suggest you file a bug report with Apple about this.
