In my iPad app, I have a Tab Bar Controller with three tabs. The first Tab has a Table View and a Search Bar at the top. There is an "Add" button in the Navigation Bar. When I click the "Add" button, it navigates to a new View Controller that has Labels/textfields/etc. If I set the first textfield to "BecomeFirstResponder", the keyboard pops up, but there is space between the BOTTOM of the Keyboard and the Tabs. I didn't set ANY special spacing. I event started a NEW Project (Tab Bar Project) and made modest additions to try to reproduce the problem. The space is there in the new test project as well. See attached image. Has anybody else seen this? Not sure what I am doing wrong. I am using Xcode 4.6 and IOS 6.1. Thanks.
