Just noticed a simple bug / oversight:
I'm trying to imitate a table view that has no background after the last row so the window background is shown. Here's one such example: http://www.momentoapp.com/images/screenshots/tags.jpg
It sounds simple but there's a couple boogers in there. If you set the tableview background to nothing, it will show through but the the row separators repeat until it reaches the edge of the window (see: http://screencast.com/t/NTg2NjdmZWU). Obviously I could set a fixed height to the table but that's not good because there might be more rows depending on the data.
So I set the tableview to have transparent BG AND separator:
And then added a view to each row that draws a line all the way across.
Which works. Here is the result:
Although that works, It would be cool if I could set the table ROW with a specific separatorColor but that property doesn't work or doesn't exist for the tableViewRow. This would be a lot better than drawing a line across I would think, for resource sake.
Is there another way to do it that I'm missing perhaps? How would you guys do it?
I've encountered exactly the same problem.
I 'solved' it in much the same way by adding the separator to the
backgroundImagefor the row instead of adding another view.
One alternative might be to use a dynamic table view height, something along the lines of
height:(rowHeight * data.length).
Never thought about the dynamic table height! Cool idea.
