Question About Gold Challenge


So when we set the BackgroundView of the tableView, it is not going to show through the cells, right? I mean, I can scroll the table around and see the background back there behind it, but the cells are all opaque white. Is the challenge considered completed then?


Hey PneumaPilot, you can see your background image if you change the background color of each cell to clear in your tableView:cellForRowAtIndexPath: method like so:

- (UITableViewCell *)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath
    ...your cell initialization code...

    cell.backgroundColor = [UIColor clearColor];

    return cell;

Also, make sure your background image isn’t white so you can actually see it! (That’s what I forgot to do :laughing:)
