How can I change the image of a button when tapping on another button in another tab


I have a UITabBarController which has 3 tabs (tab1 ,tab2 ,tab3). Each tab has 1 UITableView, and each table view has a button in each row. Now I want the user to click on any button on tab2, and button in tab1 should have changed images. I can get tag of button in tab1 but I don't know how to get tag of button in tab1 when click on button in tab2. How can i do that?

Thanks a lot.

This is my code create tableview in tab1:

- (UITableViewCell *)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath { static NSString *CellIdentifier = @"Cell"; UITableViewCell *cell = [_tableView dequeueReusableCellWithIdentifier:CellIdentifier]; if (cell == nil) { cell = [[[UITableViewCell alloc] initWithStyle:UITableViewCellStyleSubtitle reuseIdentifier:CellIdentifier] autorelease]; UIButton *market= [UIButton buttonWithType:UIButtonTypeCustom]; [market setFrame:CGRectMake(200, 6, 30, 30)]; market.tag = 4000; [market addTarget:self action:@selector(marketPressedAction:) forControlEvents:UIControlEventTouchDown]; [cell.contentView addSubview:market]; UILabel *pricelabel = [[UILabel alloc] initWithFrame:CGRectMake(80, 0, 80, 30)]; pricelabel.backgroundColor = [UIColor clearColor]; pricelabel.font = [UIFont fontWithName:@"Helvetica" size:16]; pricelabel.font = [UIFont boldSystemFontOfSize:16]; pricelabel.textColor = [UIColor darkGrayColor]; pricelabel.tag = 3000; pricelabel.textAlignment = NSTextAlignmentRight; [cell.contentView addSubview: pricelabel]; [pricelabel release]; } UIButton *marketButton = (UIButton*)[cell.contentView viewWithTag:4000]; [marketButton setTag:indexPath.row]; if([sellingArray count]>0) { if([[sellingArray objectAtIndex:indexPath.row] isEqualToString:@"0"]) // nothing { [marketButton setSelected:NO]; [marketButton setImage:[UIImage imageNamed:@"Marketplace.png"] forState:UIControlStateNormal]; marketButton.enabled = YES; } else if([[sellingArray objectAtIndex:indexPath.row] isEqualToString:@"2"]) // marketplace { [marketButton setSelected:YES]; [marketButton setImage:[UIImage imageNamed:@"MarketplaceSelect.png"] forState:UIControlStateNormal]; marketButton.enabled = YES; } } [market setTag:indexPath.row]; if([priceNewArray count]> 0) { UILabel *pricelbl = (UILabel*)[cell.contentView viewWithTag:3000]; pricelbl.text =[NSString stringWithFormat:@"$%@",[priceNewArray objectAtIndex:indexPath.row]]; if ([sellingArray count]>0) { if([[sellingArray objectAtIndex:indexPath.row] isEqualToString:@"2"]) { pricelbl.hidden = NO; } else if([[sellingArray objectAtIndex:indexPath.row] isEqualToString:@"0"]) { pricelbl.hidden = YES; } } } return cell; }

I tried use [tableview reloadData] but it only reloads UILabel, UIButton is not changing the image when I compare them.


you can use NSNotificationCenter for calling other class Method from current class like bellow example:-

add Notification at MainClass in your ViewDidLoad Method:-

- (void)viewDidLoad { [[NSNotificationCenter defaultCenter] addObserver:self selector:@selector(UpdateBtn:) name:@"updateBtn" object:nil]; [super viewDidLoad]; } -(void)UpdateBtn:(NSNotification *)notification { //Update your button image code here }

Now you just need to call this method From your popupView class Button click Action for calling update Notification

[[NSNotificationCenter defaultCenter] postNotificationName:@"updateBtn" object:self];

Hope it's Helps you:)
