UIPopover as detailview
Posted 19 February 2011 - 01:04 PM
I was just thinking that for iPad development it would be nice to have instead of a detail view pushing onto the stack of the navigation controller that we can specify that a UIPopover is used instead.
As an example I'm using a SCObjectSection with all the property types being SCPropertyTypeSelection. So when the user selects a cell the detail view (a selection list) is pushed on the stack and auto returns. I'd like for cleaner aesthetics a UIPopovers instead to be presented. Now I know I can easily do this my self, just thought that setting a property in SCTableViewSection would be very convenient.

Thanks a lot for the idea! I think this might prove to be a really convenient way of presenting detail views on the iPad.
We'll try our best to have this in the final STV 2.0 release, but if not, it should make it to the very next minor version release.
Thanks again Gary!

All my iOS apps are iPad-based and the more iPad-centric features I can easily implement the better. What I like about your custom cell implementation as well is that it lets me make creative use of the large iPad screen. I can put an entire full-screen, IB-laid-out, multifunction form in a single cell, binding with one line of code. Yikes.

Will this feature make it into the 2.0 release? I can wait a little bit before I attempt to spin my own solution. If it won't make it can you suggest code I should override (SCTableViewModel didSelectRowAtIndexPath & SCTableViewCell didSelectCell eg.)

It doesn't seem that this feature will be able to make it to STV 2.0, but it should be in 2.1.
The easiest way to implement this yourself is very similar to implementing a custom detail view. Instead of pushing a detail view though, you'll be presenting the popover with the detail view inside it.
Please tell me if you need any further help.

do you think this feature will still make it into 2.1? :-)
Would be so great!
p.s. great Framework btw, still exploring it.

Unfortunately not. STV 2.1 has been packed with new and exiting features and we're already struggling to release the final version in the next few days (especially that it's also being updated to iOS 5). I promise though that we'll add this ASAP (it's one of my personal fav too ). Thanks!
