UITableView scroll to specific section using UIPIckerView?

I have a UITableView that has a fixed number of sections, however the number of rows in each section can vary depending on server results.

I would like to implement a picker wheel to "jump" to each section. Here are my UIPickerView delegate methods in the UITableViewController:

- (NSInteger)numberOfComponentsInPickerView:(UIPickerView *)pickerView{ return 1; } - (NSInteger)pickerView:(UIPickerView *)pickerView numberOfRowsInComponent:(NSInteger)component{ return 5; } -(NSString *)pickerView:(UIPickerView *)pickerView titleForRow:(NSInteger)row forComponent:(NSInteger)component{ return [self.pickerArray objectAtIndex:row]; }

The "pickerArray" which is initialized in ViewDidLoad:

self.pickerArray = [[NSArray alloc]initWithObjects:@"Watching", @"Completed", @"On Hold", @"Dropped", @"Planned", nil];

and here's my didSelectRow method:

-(void)pickerView:(UIPickerView *)pickerView didSelectRow:(NSInteger)row inComponent:(NSInteger)component{ [self.tableView scrollToRowAtIndexPath:[self.pickerArray objectAtIndex:row] atScrollPosition:UITableViewScrollPositionNone animated:YES]; }

I noticed there's no "scrollTo*section*AtIndexPath" method, which would be helpful. Apple's docs say this about the "indexpath" parameter:

indexPath An index path that identifies a row in the table view by its row index and its section index.

Calling the method (picking something in the picker) throws this fault:

* Terminating app due to uncaught exception 'NSInvalidArgumentException', reason: '-[__NSCFConstantString section]: unrecognized selector sent to instance 0x4bdb8'

Any idea what I should be doing?


The scrollToRowAtIndexPath method takes an NSIndexPath as the first parameter but the code is passing an NSString resulting in the exception.

As the docs say, an NSIndexPath includes both a section and row (you must know this since you populated a table view with sections).

You need to create an NSIndexPath that corresponds to the first row of the section in the table view that relates to the row selected in the picker view.

So assuming that the row of the picker view corresponds directly to the sections in your table view:

//"row" below is row selected in the picker view NSIndexPath *ip = [NSIndexPath indexPathForRow:0 inSection:row]; [self.tableView scrollToRowAtIndexPath:ip atScrollPosition:UITableViewScrollPositionNone animated:YES];
