TabBar covers part of my last CollectionView cell


Basically my tab bar is partially covering the last cell in m collectionView.

I'm initialising the collectionView like so:

 UICollectionView *collectionView = [[UICollectionView alloc]initWithFrame:self.view.frame collectionViewLayout:layout];

instead of self.view.frame i guess i should do something else?

you could try subtracting the height of the tab bar from the height of the view.

CGRect frame = CGRectMake(self.view.frame.origin.x, self.view.frame.origin.y, self.view.frame.size.width, (self.view.frame.size.height - self.tabBarController.tabBar.frame.size.height));
UICollectionView *collectionView = [[UICollectionView alloc]initWithFrame:frame collectionViewLayout:layout];
