Any planned support for iPhone Native Table Cell Styles?

Does anyone know if there is planned support for the standard table cell styles available in the iPhone SDK? i.e, UITableViewCellStyleSubtitle, UITableViewCellStyleValue1, and UITableViewCellStyleValue2 ?

Right now we only get UITableViewCellStyleDefault and cannot change it through the App's JS. It would be great to have the others, especially UITableViewCellStyleValue1 for forms, etc.

  • You can use a custom row for this.
    Take a look here

    • I know you can make custom rows, and that's what I'm doing now, but it's quite a pain to replicate something that could be more efficiently implemented through the standard UITableViewCellStyles.

      Just wondered if anyone knew if supporting the standard cell styles (other than the default) was planned.

  • Are there something native plans now?

  • This is a thing I was expecting too, as the performance of native UITableViewCellStyles is far superior of the custom rows and the best choice for larger table views. As of now, this is still not implemented. I think this is due to the way Titanium deals with Rows, as it doesn't exposes the UITableViewCell to Ti high level API's thus not allowing the definition of a property mapped to UITableViewCell::initWithStyle.
    I think this is not very complex to implement as some stuff from UITableViewCell is actually mapped on the high level Ti API.

    I've opened a request on JIRA for this feature: https://jira.appcelerator.org/browse/TC-1142

  • Perfect JIRA-entry, thank you! Let's hope that the Appcelerator staff understand the priority of this feature.
