IOS 4.3 hide status bar permanently

I'm trying to hide the status bar in iOS 4.3 now that

is deprecated:

[[UIApplication sharedApplication] setStatusBarHidden:YES animated:NO]; //deprecated

The only option that exists in the plist file is: Status bar is initially hidden. Which only hides the status bar at the start of the app.


Answer Source

Try this:

[[UIApplication sharedApplication] setStatusBarHidden:NO withAnimation:UIStatusBarAnimationFade];

From Apple Class Reference:


Hides or shows the status bar, optionally animating the transition. - (void)setStatusBarHidden:(BOOL)hidden withAnimation:(UIStatusBarAnimation)animation Parameters

hidden YES to hide the status bar, NO to show the status bar.

animation A constant that indicates whether there should be an animation and, if one is requested, whether it should fade the status bar in or out or whether it should slide the status bar in or out.
