Change UINavigationBar Height

You can create a category class based on UINavigationBar like this

.h file

#import UIKit/UIKit.h    @interface UINavigationBar (myNave)- (CGSize)changeHeight:(CGSize)size;@end

and .m file

#import "UINavigationBar+customNav.h"@implementation UINavigationBar (customNav)- (CGSize)sizeThatFits:(CGSize)size {    CGSize newSize = CGSizeMake(320,100);    return newSize;}@end

It works very nice.

● barStyle property

● translucent property

● tintColor property

(taken from Apple:

-- UPDATE -- IOS 7 --- still only the available properties can be changed but below is a great tutorial on how to achieve flexibility in the navigation bar

I have solved this issue, I created the subclass of UINavigationController. In this MainNavigationViewController.m file I rewrite viewDidLayoutSubviews() method, where I set the frame for self.navigationBar
