tableView:numberOfRowsInSection:]: unrecognized selector sent to instance

I have a weird problem. I get this error:

-[FourSquareCheckInViewController tableView:numberOfRowsInSection:]: unrecognized selector sent to instance 0x7aecc0
2012-09-14 19:18:39.039 [5869:707] *** Terminating app due to uncaught exception 'NSInvalidArgumentException', reason: '-[FourSquareCheckInViewController tableView:numberOfRowsInSection:]: unrecognized selector sent to instance 0x7aecc0'

Ok so I have made sure that the ViewController is set as the dataSource and the Delegate. I have added the UITableViewDelegate and UITableViewDataSource to the <> thingies.

I have set tableView.delegate = self and tableView.dataSource = self in my viewDidLoad method.

Here is my implementation of the viewDidLoad and viewDidAppear methods:

- (void)viewWillAppear:(BOOL)animated{
locationManager = [[CLLocationManager alloc] init];
locationManager.delegate = self;
locationManager.distanceFilter = kCLDistanceFilterNone; // whenever we move
locationManager.desiredAccuracy = kCLLocationAccuracyKilometer; // 1km
[locationManager startUpdatingLocation];
locationLat = [locationManager location].coordinate.latitude;
locationLng = [locationManager location].coordinate.longitude;
[locationManager stopUpdatingLocation];

// 1
CLLocationCoordinate2D zoomLocation;
zoomLocation.latitude = locationLat;
zoomLocation.longitude= locationLng;
// 2
MKCoordinateRegion viewRegion = MKCoordinateRegionMakeWithDistance(zoomLocation, 0.5*METERS_PER_MILE, 0.5*METERS_PER_MILE);
// 3
MKCoordinateRegion adjustedRegion = [_mapView regionThatFits:viewRegion];
// 4
[_mapView setRegion:adjustedRegion animated:YES];
}

- (void)viewDidLoad
{
[super viewDidLoad];

_tableView.delegate = self;
_tableView.dataSource = self;

// Do any additional setup after loading the view.
// 1
MKCoordinateRegion mapRegion = [_mapView region];
CLLocationCoordinate2D centerLocation = mapRegion.center;

locationManager = [[CLLocationManager alloc] init];
locationManager.delegate = self;
locationManager.distanceFilter = kCLDistanceFilterNone; // whenever we move
locationManager.desiredAccuracy = kCLLocationAccuracyKilometer; // 1km
[locationManager startUpdatingLocation];
locationLat = [locationManager location].coordinate.latitude;
locationLng = [locationManager location].coordinate.longitude;
[locationManager stopUpdatingLocation];

}


Here is my method body for numberOfRowsInSection:

- (NSInteger)numberOfRowsInSection:(NSInteger)section{
return 5;
}


Here is my header file for the view controller:

#import <UIKit/UIKit.h>
#import <MapKit/MapKit.h>

#define METERS_PER_MILE 1609.344

@interface FourSquareCheckInViewController : UIViewController <UITableViewDelegate, UITableViewDataSource, CLLocationManagerDelegate, MKMapViewDelegate>{

}


@property (weak, nonatomic) IBOutlet MKMapView *_mapView;

- (NSInteger)numberOfRowsInSection:(NSInteger)section;
@property (weak, nonatomic) IBOutlet UITableView *_tableView;



@end


Here is a screenshot showing how my tableView is hooked up:

Answer

Read what the error message is telling you!

You have implemented numberOfRowsInSection:. So what? That's the wrong method. It is irrelevant. It will never be called.

The method you need to implement is called tableView:numberOfRowsInSection:. That's completely different.
