Chapter 8. Content Controls

In the previous chapter, we looked at the standard controls in the CocoaTouch UIKit. In this chapter, we're going to continue our journey through the UIKit control ecosystem and look at controls whose job it is to manage content, be it other views or controllers. Specifically, in this chapter we're going to cover the following controls:

  • Navigation controller

  • Tab bar controller

  • Split view controller

  • Web view

  • Map view

  • Search bar

We've already used some of these in the example applications, or at least talked about them in examples. In this chapter, we're going to dig into each one of them in more detail, examine their capabilities, and explore how to work with them.

You can find all of the examples in this chapter in the Example_ContentControls ...
