I'm creating a series of help pages that display when the user first starts the app. To do this, I have a programatically set up UIViewController that initializes a (programatically set up) UICollectionView the size of the view controller bounds. Each cell contains a fullscreen sized image.
When this view controller is pushed when there's already an existing view controller, it shows up fine. But, when this view controller is used as the initial root view controller for the app navigation controller, the collection view has the correct size and alignment, but the cells are shifted down about 10 pixels from the top of the screen, so that the collection view background shows through.
(note that red is the collection view background color)
If I set up the collection view in viewDidLoad, viewDidLayoutSubviews, or viewWillAppear, I get the same problem. I don't encounter this issue if I set up the collection view in viewDidAppear, but this doesn't work because the user will see a black screen before the collection view loads.
Here is the code that is displaying the view controller, in application:didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:launchOptions:
UIViewController* viewControllerToPush = [[OnboardingViewController alloc] initWithNibName:nil bundle:nil]; _nav = [[UINavigationController alloc] initWithRootViewController:viewControllerToPush]; [_nav setNavigationBarHidden:YES]; self.window = [[UIWindow alloc] initWithFrame:[[UIScreen mainScreen] bounds]]; [self.window setRootViewController:_nav]; [self.window makeKeyAndVisible];
And here is the code that is setting up the collection view and layout:
UICollectionViewFlowLayout* layout = [[UICollectionViewFlowLayout alloc] init]; layout.minimumInteritemSpacing = 0; layout.minimumLineSpacing = 0; layout.itemSize = CGSizeMake(self.view.bounds.size.width, self.view.bounds.size.height); layout.scrollDirection = UICollectionViewScrollDirectionHorizontal; CGRect collectionViewFrame = self.view.bounds; _collectionView = [[UICollectionView alloc] initWithFrame:collectionViewFrame collectionViewLayout:layout]; _collectionView.delegate = self; _collectionView.dataSource = self; _collectionView.pagingEnabled = YES; _collectionView.showsHorizontalScrollIndicator = NO; [_collectionView registerClass:[OnboardingCollectionViewCell class] forCellWithReuseIdentifier:@"Cell"]; [self.view addSubview:_collectionView];
