tableView reloadData not working: cellForRowAtIndexPath not called


I have this problem cellForRowAtIndexPath is not called by reloadingData. I have spent a lot of time with this. I xib file dataSource and delegate are connected to File's Owner. Any idea is welcome.

This is my code :


- (UITableViewCell *)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath { static NSString *CellIdentifier = @"Cell"; UITableViewCell *cell = [tableView dequeueReusableCellWithIdentifier:CellIdentifier]; if (cell == nil) { cell = [[[UITableViewCell alloc] initWithFrame:CGRectZero reuseIdentifier:CellIdentifier] autorelease]; //cell.accessoryType = UITableViewCellAccessoryDisclosureIndicator; cell.backgroundColor = [UIColor clearColor]; cell.selectionStyle = UITableViewCellSelectionStyleGray; cell.backgroundView.opaque = NO; //cell.alpha = 0.65; cell.textLabel.backgroundColor = [UIColor clearColor]; cell.textLabel.opaque = NO; cell.textLabel.textColor = [UIColor whiteColor]; cell.textLabel.highlightedTextColor = [UIColor whiteColor]; cell.textLabel.font = [UIFont boldSystemFontOfSize:18]; cell.detailTextLabel.backgroundColor = [UIColor clearColor]; cell.detailTextLabel.opaque = NO; cell.detailTextLabel.textColor = [UIColor whiteColor]; cell.detailTextLabel.highlightedTextColor = [UIColor whiteColor]; cell.detailTextLabel.font = [UIFont systemFontOfSize:14]; NSString *temp = [distanceArray objectAtIndex:indexPath.row]; if([checkMarkArray count] != 0){ NSString *checkString = [checkMarkArray objectAtIndex:0]; NSLog(@" checkString %@",checkString); if ([temp isEqualToString:checkString ]) { cell.accessoryView = [[[UIImageView alloc] initWithImage:[UIImage imageNamed:@"checked.png"]] autorelease]; } else { cell.accessoryView = [[[UIImageView alloc] initWithImage:[UIImage imageNamed:@"unchecked.png"]] autorelease]; } } } // Set up the cell... [[cell textLabel] setText: [distanceArray objectAtIndex:indexPath.row]] ; return cell; }


- (void)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView didSelectRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath { UITableViewCell *selectedCell = [tableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:indexPath]; cellText = selectedCell.textLabel.text; NSLog(@"%@",cellText); [checkMarkArray removeAllObjects]; if([[tableViewDistance cellForRowAtIndexPath:indexPath] accessoryType] == UITableViewCellAccessoryCheckmark) { //global array to store selected object [checkMarkArray removeObject:[distanceArray objectAtIndex:indexPath.row]]; NSLog(@"array %@",checkMarkArray); [tableViewDistance cellForRowAtIndexPath:indexPath].accessoryView = [[[UIImageView alloc] initWithImage:[UIImage imageNamed:@"unchecked.png"]] autorelease]; [[tableViewDistance cellForRowAtIndexPath:indexPath] setAccessoryType:UITableViewCellAccessoryNone]; [self.tableViewDistance reloadData]; } else { [checkMarkArray addObject:[distanceArray objectAtIndex:indexPath.row]]; NSLog(@"array again %@",checkMarkArray); [tableViewDistance cellForRowAtIndexPath:indexPath].accessoryView = [[[UIImageView alloc] initWithImage:[UIImage imageNamed:@"checked.png"]] autorelease]; [[tableViewDistance cellForRowAtIndexPath:indexPath] setAccessoryType:UITableViewCellAccessoryCheckmark]; [self.tableViewDistance reloadData]; } tableViewDistance.delegate = self; tableViewDistance.dataSource = self; [self.tableViewDistance reloadData]; }


- (void)viewDidLoad { distanceArray= [[NSMutableArray alloc] initWithObjects:@"20 Kilomètres", @"40 Kilomètres", @"60 Kilomètres",@"80 Kilomètres",nil]; NSLog(@"distance %@",distanceArray); tableViewDistance.backgroundColor=[UIColor clearColor]; checkMarkArray = [[NSMutableArray alloc] init]; [super viewDidLoad]; // Do any additional setup after loading the view from its nib. }


I've found some weak parts in your code:


You should set cell.accessoryView out of if (cell == nil){}

</li> <li>

In - (void)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView didSelectRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath you can use tableView and not use tableViewDistance (may be it is nil?)

</li> <li>

In - (void)viewDidLoad you should call first [super viewDidLoad]; and then make customizations.

</li> </ol>

Hope that will help you. Gl


connect Your tableView outlet (UITableView *tableViewDistance) to Your Xib TableView.


Try to call

[tableView reloadData];

instead of

[self.tableViewDistance reloadData];


Based on your comment to the question, you want to have only one cell selected at a time, so you want to deselect the previously selected cell and select the one currently selected. You can use the -indexPathForSelectedRow method of UITableView to find the selected row:

- (void)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView didSelectRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath { // For multiselect, use an array to store the checked state instead of using the tableView's state. [self.tableView deselectRowAtIndexPath:[self.tableView indexPathForSelectedRow]]; [self.tableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:indexPath].accessoryView = ...; }

You will also want to implement tableView:didDeselectRowAtIndexPath::

- (void)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView didDeselectRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath { [self.tableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:indexPath].accessoryView = ...; }
