UIDatepicker artifact

I'm using the standard inputView = someObjectThatIsAUIDatePicker trick to show a date picker instead of a keyboard to enter dates however; once the date picker is hidden there's still a grey box where the date picker was.

Here's the code executing when you tap on Show history:

- (IBAction)getHistoryButtonWasPressed:(id)sender
    _startPicker.hidden = YES;
    _endPicker.hidden = YES;
    [self reloadTable]; // this does a query and then calls reloadData on the table

I've tried removing the pickers from the view and doing a setNeedsDisplay on the super and current views, etc.

If you set the inputView of the textField, then need to use the resignFirstResponder method for "hide" the inputView. (not the hidden property of the inputView) You can use this method too, when the inputView is just a default keyboard.

I tossed in a [_startPicker resignFirstResponder] and it worked. Thanks Dávid!
