how to fire a button action method in didselectrowatindexpath in iOS, objective c

I have a tableview with custom tableview cell. in the tableview cell there are two labels and one button.what I want it to fire the button action for user selected row to hide a label in the same row.

this is my controller for table view


#import <UIKit/UIKit.h>

@interface ViewController : UIViewController<UITableViewDelegate, UITableViewDataSource>

@property (weak, nonatomic) IBOutlet UITableView *tablev;



#import "ViewController.h"
#import "TestTableViewCell.h"

@interface ViewController ()


@implementation ViewController

- (void)viewDidLoad {
[super viewDidLoad];
// Do any additional setup after loading the view, typically from a nib.

- (void)didReceiveMemoryWarning {
[super didReceiveMemoryWarning];
// Dispose of any resources that can be recreated.

- (NSInteger)numberOfSectionsInTableView:(UITableView *)tableView
return 1;

- (NSInteger)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView numberOfRowsInSection:(NSInteger)section
return 2;

- (UITableViewCell *)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath

TestTableViewCell *cell = [tableView dequeueReusableCellWithIdentifier:@"mycell"];
cell.selectionStyle = UITableViewCellFocusStyleCustom;

return cell;


- (void)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView didSelectRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath
NSInteger sec = indexPath.section;
NSInteger rw = indexPath.row;

TestTableViewCell *cell = [tableView dequeueReusableCellWithIdentifier:@"mycell"];
cell.numberlabel.hidden = YES;
NSLog(@"selected section :%li ---> selected row :%li",(long)sec, (long)rw);

//in here I want fire the button acction in the cell for each row when cell tap.(not when the button click in the cell).


#import <UIKit/UIKit.h>

@interface TestTableViewCell : UITableViewCell
@property (weak, nonatomic) IBOutlet UILabel *staticlabel;
@property (weak, nonatomic) IBOutlet UILabel *numberlabel;

@property (weak, nonatomic) IBOutlet UIButton *hidebutton;


//I have tried to implement button click method here.It worked.but at that point it didn't recognised which cell is taped.

You can implement by two way one you can add Button Action in to your cellForRowAtIndexPath and setting tag of Button like following code:


[hidebutton addTarget:self

Its Action Method is

  NSIndexPath *hideIndexpath = [NSIndexPath indexPathForRow:sender.tag inSection:0];
  TestTableViewCell *cell = (TestTableViewCell *)[self.tablev cellForRowAtIndexPath:hideIndexpath];


Another way is you can achieve this same from DidSelect method with following code:

    - (void)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView didSelectRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath{
            TestTableViewCell *cell = (TestTableViewCell *)[self.tablev cellForRowAtIndexPath:indexPath];
//use your cell object for hide anyting
