I am creating a sample "Tabbed Application project" with Xcode 6.3. The tab bar is configured in the Storyboard view, and its configuration is set thus:
As you can see, the
Selection part is set to an empty string, which is the default value.
However, when running the app in the simulator, the tab bar looks like this:
There is this weird semi-transparent blue rectangular background around the selected item. So what I tried is setting the selection item to the string literal "foobar," which does not exist in my project. This yields the result I was looking for:
The weird blue background is gone. And yet, I don't think this is the preferred way of doing this, and it might (definitely will) confuse future developers. So how should it be done?
