    In iOS 7, there's a button on the right side of the navigation bar in iMessages labeled "Contact". Tapping it causes the title to shift to Done, the navigation bar's title to fade out, and for another bar full of action items to drop down.

    Does anyone know if having this bar drop down from the navigation bar is something easily done (IE, virtually no work) or is it something you just have to roll your own on?

    I had to go and look to see what you meant! I think it's just a standard toolbar being animated on and off screen. Don't think there is built-in support as such but setting the position should be simple...

    I'm thinking its just the navigation bar :/

    Damn how nice it would be to have jailbroken devices, install cycript and just go ask it :p (But i suppose you could just class dump it to get "what it is")

    Huh? Are you saying I can use some obj-C runtime function to determine every available class in iOS without jailbreaking?

    I dont think you can....

    But if you could copy the Messages.app off the phone and run class-dump you could possibly dig up the what object it it... if i still had an iphone 4 i could be A LOT more helpful

    Oh. Is that doable with a jailbreak?

    Getting the file system doesnt require a jailbreak, as long as you have the IPSW for an iPhone 4, you could decrypt the dmg, and look at whatever you want.

    (sorry if im throwing out things, youd rather stay away from)

    Have you watched the WWDC UI sessions to see if it was covered in new features there?

    I have watched this set and did not see anything resembling it. Most likely just a UIToolbar added programmatically

    That would be my guess as well. Shouldn't be that hard to code up.

    After a lot of thought on my UI I decided that the screen where I wanted this was more complicated than necessary had too many buttons (6) and so I cut it down to 2 so that I wouldn't need anything like the extra toolbar.
