A UITableViewController subclass that can hide sections of a grouped table without displaying random padding where the section should be.


First, make your UITableViewController a subclass of DCHideableSectionViewController.

#import <UIKit/UIKit.h>
#import "DCHideableSectionViewController.h"

@interface DCMainTableViewController : DCHideableSectionViewController


Next, in your UITableViewController's viewDidLoad:, set the two properties of the DCHideableSectionViewController that define the height of the header and footer views.

    self.headerViewHeight = 33.0f;
    self.footerViewHeight = 0.0f;

That's it!

If you wish to use -tableView:viewForHeaderInSection: or -tableView:viewForFooterInSection: instead of -tableView:titleForHeaderInSection: or -tableView:titleForFooterInSection:, then you must first call the super class's method. If the super class does not return nil, simply return the view returned. Otherwise, you are free to return any view you like.

For example:

- (UIView *)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView viewForHeaderInSection:(NSInteger)section
    UIView *view = [super tableView:tableView viewForHeaderInSection:section];

    if ( view == nil )
        view = [self headerViewForSection:section];

    return view;
