Big picture of table view?(iOS Apprentice 2)

I’m a newbie to iOS App development and have just completed iOS Apprentice 2(Checklist).
It was an incredibly great learning experience!
Thanks for that. :slight_smile:

So far so good, but I’m still not sure about big picture of TableView in iOS such as what events are available (eg.flying in/out) and how to handle them… In other words, the architecture of TableView.

Could anyone give me an advice if I should complete the whole tutorials from iOS Apprentice 1 to 4 BEFORE digging into such details? or is there any other learning materials that I can refer to?

Many thanks in advance for your help.:slightly_smiling:

I am not sure what you’re asking… If you know how to put cells into a table view, then you pretty much know all there is to it.

There are some additional things the user can do with a table view:

  • swipe to delete
  • swipe for additional actions (see mail)
  • sections (explained in tutorial 3)
  • an index on the side (A - Z)

And that’s pretty much it. All of this stuff is handled by the data source and delegate, just like you’ve seen already.

Thanks for your reply!
OK, I’ll try to review every step I’ve performed to understand more deeply.
It should tell me where I am and my learning direction. :grin:


If there’s a specific issue you’re having, I’d be happy to explain a bit more.
