iOS: Place UIView on top of UITableView in fixed position

Here is how it worked for me. The Ad stays at the bottom of the view.

In ViewDidLoad, in YourController.m:

awView = [AdWhirlView requestAdWhirlViewWithDelegate:self]; = CGPointMake(self.view.frame.size.width/2, self.view.frame.size.height-kAdWhirlViewHeight/2);[self.view addSubview:awView];

Then add this method somewhere in the same .m file:

-(void)scrollViewDidScroll:(UIScrollView *)scrollView {    CGRect newFrame = awView.frame;    newFrame.origin.x = 0;    newFrame.origin.y = self.tableView.contentOffset.y+(self.tableView.frame.size.height-kAdWhirlViewHeight);    awView.frame = newFrame;}

Don't forget to declare awView.

I appreciate this is an old question. But I've found the answers either with false information in part and unclear snippets. So for what it's still worth, here is how I added a "floating" view to the bottom of my UITableViewController's view. Yes, you can do that, even if the accepted answers says you cannot.

In your -viewDidLoad method, you can create a view which we will name bottomFloatingView. This is also set up as a property.

Be sure to add a content inset to the bottom of your table view, this will avoid hiding any of the table's content with your floating view.

Next, you should use the UIScrollViewDelegate to update the frame of the floating view.

The illusion will be that your view is stuck to the bottom. In reality, this view is moving all the time you are scrolling, and is always being computed to appear at the bottom. Scroll views are very powerful ! And probably are one of the most underrated UIKit classes I think.

So here is my code. Note the property, the content inset on the table view and the -scrollViewDidScroll: delegate method implementation. I created my floating view in my storyboard which is why you can't see that being setup.

Also don't forget you should probably also use KVO to observe changes to the table view's frame. It's possible for that to change over time, the easiest way to test that is by toggling on and off the in call status bar in the simulator.

Last thing, if you're using section header views in your table view, those views will be the top most view in the table view so you'll also want to bring your floating view to the front, do this when you change its frame.

@interface MyTableViewController ()@property (strong, nonatomic) IBOutlet UIView *bottomFloatingView;@end@implementation MyTableViewControllerstatic NSString *const cellIdentifier = @"MyTableViewCell";- (void)dealloc{    [self.tableView removeObserver:self forKeyPath:@"frame"];}- (void)viewDidLoad{    [super viewDidLoad];    [self.tableView addSubview:self.bottomFloatingView];    self.tableView.contentInset = UIEdgeInsetsMake(0.0, 0.0, CGRectGetHeight(self.bottomFloatingView.bounds), 0.0);    self.tableView.scrollIndicatorInsets = UIEdgeInsetsMake(0.0, 0.0, CGRectGetHeight(self.bottomFloatingView.bounds), 0.0);    [self.tableView addObserver:self                     forKeyPath:@"frame"                        options:0                        context:NULL];}#pragma mark - UITableViewDataSource- (NSInteger)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView numberOfRowsInSection:(NSInteger)section{    return 20;}- (UITableViewCell *)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath{    UITableViewCell *cell = [tableView dequeueReusableCellWithIdentifier:cellIdentifier forIndexPath:indexPath];    cell.textLabel.text = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"Row %d", indexPath.row];    return cell;}#pragma mark - UIScrollViewDelegate- (void)scrollViewDidScroll:(UIScrollView *)scrollView{    [self adjustFloatingViewFrame];}#pragma mark - KVO- (void)observeValueForKeyPath:(NSString *)keyPath                      ofObject:(id)object                        change:(NSDictionary *)change                       context:(void *)context {    if([keyPath isEqualToString:@"frame"]) {        [self adjustFloatingViewFrame];    }}- (void)adjustFloatingViewFrame{    CGRect newFrame = self.bottomFloatingView.frame;    newFrame.origin.x = 0;    newFrame.origin.y = self.tableView.contentOffset.y + CGRectGetHeight(self.tableView.bounds) - CGRectGetHeight(self.bottomFloatingView.bounds);    self.bottomFloatingView.frame = newFrame;    [self.tableView bringSubviewToFront:self.bottomFloatingView];}@end

  1. Add your view to the superview of the table view (if possible; UITableViewControllermakes this impossible).

  2. Add your view to the table view and reposition it in the -scrollViewDidScroll:delegate method (UITableViewDelegateis a sub-protocol of UIScrollViewDelegate).
