How to expand cell of a Table View with animation... :)

here is how i am managing this

1. you need an NSMutableArray

the NSMutablearray is the same count as the datasource array for the table

so, you need to populate it with something like this


self.cellAccessArray = [[NSMutableArray alloc] initWithObjects:@"closed",@"closed",@"closed",@"closed",nil];
[self.cellAccessArray release];

this means we have 4 table rows

now, in your heightForRowAtIndexPath, put this


if([[self.cellAccessArray object atIndex:indexPath.row] isEqualToString:@"open"])
return 140;
return 70;

now, to the didSelectRowAtIndexPath

put this


if([[self.cellAccessArray objectAtIndex:indexPath.row] isEqualToString:@"closed"])
[self.cellAccesArray replaceObjectAtIndex:indexPath.row withObject:@"open"];
[self.cellAccesArray replaceObjectAtIndex:indexPath.row withObject:@"closed"];

[tableView reloadRowsAtIndexPath:[NSArray arrayWithObject:indexPath] withRowAnimation:UITableViewRowAnimationNone];

How to create own delegates..... (Protocol methods)

if u want to update any variable or call any method of any class for Eg. Class A). of your project while the control is working in any other class(for Eg. Class B), then you can do it by creating your own delegate/protocol in calling class, and Declare that method in that protocol n define that method in called class.... to elaborate lets see the code.....

Calling.h //First Class

@protocol myDelegate [NSObject]
- (void) doIt;

@interface Calling :
UIViewController {

id [
myDelegate] delegate;

@property(nonatomic, retain) id
[myDelegate] delegate;



#import " Calling.h"

#import " Called.h "

@implementation Calling

@synthesize delegate;

- (void)viewDidLoad {
[super viewDidLoad];

[delegate hideUnhideMenu];


Called.h // Class B

@interface Called : UIViewController
[myDelegate] {




#import " Called.h"

@implementation Called

- (void)viewDidLoad {
[super viewDidLoad];

Calling* obj = [[Calling alloc] init];
obj.delegate = self;

- (void)hideUnhideMenu {

//Do your updation here.


NOTE: please replace "[" type of brackets with "<".
