Hello ,

I have a UISearchBar and a tableview in an xib and wired the searchbar and tableview but I did NOT create IBOutlet Properties (I tried creating properties but that did not work either).


When I tap the search bar A new searchbar with a 1 row tableview appears on top of my existing searchbar and table view.


See attached. The problem is that the formatting of my table is messed up where the top row appears in the NEW table view and my existing.


Can I prevent the New search bar and table OR just the table view from appearing ? I Like how the New search bar automatically filters the tableview on each keystroke rather than me creating search logic.







SCArrayOfObjectsModel *booksModel = [SCArrayOfObjectsModel modelWithTableView:self.tableView entityDefinition:booksDef];



    booksModel.searchBar = self.searchBar;

    //search by book names

    booksModel.searchPropertyName = _entityAttribute;

    booksModel.autoSortSections = YES;




booksModel.sectionActions.cellForRowAtIndexPath = ^SCCustomCell*(SCArrayOfItemsSection *itemsSection, NSIndexPath *indexPath)


// Create & return a custom cell based on the cell in BookOverviewCell

NSString *bindingsString = @"1:title;2:author;3:pix"; // 1,2,3 are the control tags


SCCustomCell *bookOverviewCell = [SCCustomCell cellWithText:nil objectBindingsString:bindingsString nibName:@"BookOverviewCell"];

bookOverviewCell.themeStyle = @"whiteCell";



booksModel.cellActions.willConfigure = ^(SCTableViewCell *cell, NSIndexPath *indexPath)




if(UI_USER_INTERFACE_IDIOM() == UIUserInterfaceIdiomPhone) {


UILabel *l1  = (UILabel *)[cell viewWithTag:1];

l1.font = [UIFont fontWithName:@"ChalkboardSE-Regular" size:12];

UILabel *l2  = (UILabel *)[cell viewWithTag:2];

l2.font = [UIFont fontWithName:@"ChalkboardSE-Regular" size:12];





UIImageView *imageView = (UIImageView *)[cell viewWithTag:3];

NSManagedObject *mo = (NSManagedObject *)cell.boundObject;

  NSData *mydata = (NSData *)[mo valueForKey:@"pix"];


UIImage *im =  [UIImage imageWithData:mydata];

     imageView.image  = im;



UIView *bgColorView = [[UIView alloc] init];

[bgColorView setBackgroundColor:[UIColor orangeColor]];

[cell setSelectedBackgroundView:bgColorView];






return bookOverviewCell;

Greetings Program!


Do not use the SCSearchViewController if you want to use your own search bar.


On my custom search, this works fine:

@interface ViewController : SCTableViewController <UISearchBarDelegate>

@property(nonatomic, retain) IBOutlet UISearchBar *searchBar;

@synthesize searchBar;

- (void)searchBarSearchButtonClicked:(UISearchBar *)search
    // Hide the keyboard.
    [self.view endEditing:YES];
    NSLog(@"\n-------------------\nSearch for: %@\n-------------------\n", search.text);
    // Handle custom filtering.



If I switch it to this then I experience the normal handling of the SCSearchViewController where the view slides up and the tableview is darkened:

@interface ViewController : SCSearchViewController <UISearchBarDelegate>

P.S. I love Swift... talk Swift.. Never too old school to learn yet another programming language. LOL! ;-)
