UITableViewDataSource required methods


Hi all,
so it says in documentation that there are 2 required methods for this, however even if I explicitly implement this protocol
in BNRItemsViewController it does not complain that i have not implemented the 2 methods - why is that? Surely if they are required
it should force me to implement the methods?
many thanks for any replies!


OK i think i understand now, because the superclass of BNRItemsViewController is UITableViewController, which already implements the protocol and therefore must already have default implementations of the required methods… :question:
