Hi - I am working on the IOS7 and when I run the table view, the cell starts with on the top. Touching the top of the simulator. Is anyone facing same issue?

Or you could do something like this:

NSInteger cellCount = [self tableView:tableView numberOfRowsInSection:indexPath.section];
return self.view.frame.size.height / (CGFloat)cellCount;

That is what you put inside of the delegate method

You need to implement

- (CGFloat)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView heightForRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath{

It's one of the tableView's delegates .

Hi Thomas,

Thanks. I am pretty new to IOS dev. What kind of code would go into this

Thanks, Nitin

The function returns a float. So If you were to write "return 60.0f" (Try it out), that would happen to all the cells. What you need to do, is locate the first cell and set the approriate height :)

cool thanks this work. I was wondering that is this a bug or a feature that came with IOS 7 and X5? It was not the case previously
