Simple format error


Does anyone know how I can fix this problem? The table view overlaps the status bar at the top, making it look very bad. Thank you!

to fix this you can add a table header programatically

 UIView *headerView = [[UIView alloc] initWithFrame:CGRectMake(0, 0, self.tableView.width, 20)];
self.tableView.tableHeaderView = headerView;

or using your storyboard. to do this using storyboard select your tableView controller and drag a view object from the utilities view onto the top part of your tableView and drop it in and adjust the view to the size you want it.

Where would I insert this code?

viewDidLoad of your table view controller. You may have to play around with the header frame to Get the size you want, but the status bar is 20 high.
