This is a very strange issue with iPad simulator, my app isnt "Designed for iPad" its just compatible.. like all other apps. But the problem arrives when adding UISearchBar with "Cancel" button. It works fine on iPod Device - iOS4, And previously tested on iPod 3.0.. i used to see the cancel button just fine. But with the new Xcode when deploying on iPad Simulator, i dont see the "Cancel" button next to the SearchBar in the navigationitem's titleView. Im wondering if this is a bug in the simulator?? or theres something wrong with how im doing it. Code: self.mySearchBar = [[UISearchBar alloc] initWithFrame:CGRectMake(0, 0, self.navigationController.navigationBar.frame.size.width, 0)]; mySearchBar.delegate = self; mySearchBar.autoresizingMask = (UIViewAutoresizingFlexibleWidth | UIViewAutoresizingFlexibleHeight); mySearchBar.placeholder = @"SearchText"; [B]mySearchBar.showsCancelButton = YES;[/B] mySearchBar.tintColor = self.navigationController.navigationBar.tintColor; mySearchBar.scopeButtonTitles = [NSArray arrayWithObjects:@"Case Sensitive", @"Case Insensitive", nil]; mySearchBar.showsScopeBar = YES; [mySearchBar sizeToFit]; Also, I added the scopeBar.. and again, i dont see it in iPad simulator, while its just fine on iPhone/iPhone4 Simulators and Device. Should i be testing this on a 3.0 device? I'll have to restore to 3.0 device.. To add to this, i've reset the Simulator, recompiled, redid everything, still I see no CANCEL button adjacent to the searchBar and no scopeBar below it. So, Efectively going to search is a point of no return. (Cant tap cancel and remove searchBar). NOTE: this only happens on iPad Simulator, iPhone4/iPhone simulator and iPodT device with iOS4 work just fine..
