How to save the checkmarks in uitableview and show them when the user comes back again to the view?

I am using the following code for showing the checkmarks in the uitableview

{
// NSArray *tableContents;
NSMutableArray *selectedMarks; // You need probably to save the selected cells for use in the future.
}
@property (strong, nonatomic) IBOutlet UITableView *languageTableView;
@property (nonatomic, strong) NSArray *tableContents;

@end

@implementation QPLanguageSettingsController

- (void)viewDidLoad {
[super viewDidLoad];
// Do any additional setup after loading the view.
[self initialisation];
selectedMarks = [NSMutableArray new];
}
#pragma mark - View Life Cycle

-(void)initialisation
{
_tableContents = [NSArray arrayWithObjects:@"English",@"Spanish",@"Russian",@"Arabic",@"Portuguese",@"French",@"German",@"German",@"German",@"German",@"German",@"German",@"German",@"German", nil];
}

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

#pragma mark - UITableView delegate & datasources

- (NSInteger)numberOfSectionsInTableView:(UITableView *)tableView
{
// Return the number of sections.
return 1;
}

- (NSInteger)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView numberOfRowsInSection:(NSInteger)section
{
return 14;
}
- (UITableViewCell *)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath
{
static NSString *CellIdentifier = @"newFriendCell";
UITableViewCell *cell = (UITableViewCell *)[tableView dequeueReusableCellWithIdentifier:CellIdentifier];

if (cell == nil) {
cell = [[UITableViewCell alloc]initWithStyle:UITableViewCellStyleDefault reuseIdentifier:CellIdentifier];
}
//etc.

cell.selectionStyle = UITableViewCellSelectionStyleNone;
cell.textLabel.textColor = [UIColor whiteColor];
cell.backgroundColor = [UIColor clearColor];
[cell setIndentationLevel:3];
[cell setIndentationWidth:10];
NSString *text = [_tableContents objectAtIndex:[indexPath row]];
//cell.isSelected = [selectedMarks containsObject:text] ? YES : NO;
cell.textLabel.text = text;
NSDictionary *item = [_tableContents objectAtIndex:indexPath.row];
if ([selectedMarks containsObject:item])
{
cell.accessoryType = UITableViewCellAccessoryCheckmark;
}
else
{
cell.accessoryType = UITableViewCellAccessoryNone;

}

return cell;
}

- (void)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView didSelectRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath
{
[tableView deselectRowAtIndexPath:indexPath animated:YES];
//if you want only one cell to be selected use a local NSIndexPath property instead of array. and use the code below
//self.selectedIndexPath = indexPath;

//the below code will allow multiple selection
NSDictionary *item = [_tableContents objectAtIndex:indexPath.row];
if ([selectedMarks containsObject:item])
{
[selectedMarks removeObject:item];
}
else
{
[selectedMarks addObject:item];
}
[tableView reloadRowsAtIndexPaths:@[indexPath] withRowAnimation:UITableViewRowAnimationAutomatic];
}


But the problem is that when i come again to the view controller all the checkmarks disappears. how to solve it. Remember i am using multiple selection in uitableview.

Answer

I tried the to get solution for your question.I got it successfully.It works perfectly.

This is sample one.Try this code.It works fine.

ViewController.h

#import <UIKit/UIKit.h>

@interface ViewController : UIViewController<UITableViewDataSource,UITableViewDelegate>

@property (strong, nonatomic) IBOutlet UITableView *tableViewCheckMarkPreviousSelectionUpdate;
@end

ViewController.m

#import "ViewController.h"

@interface ViewController ()
{
   NSMutableArray *arrProductSelection,*arrProductSelectDeSelectCheckMark;
   NSArray *arrayFetchFromDefaults;
}

@end

@implementation ViewController

@synthesize tableViewCheckMarkPreviousSelectionUpdate;

- (void)viewDidLoad
{
   [super viewDidLoad];
   arrProductSelection = [[NSMutableArray alloc]initWithObjects:@"iPhone",@"iPad",@"iPod",@"iTV",@"iWatch",@"iMac",nil];
}
- (void)didReceiveMemoryWarning
{
  [super didReceiveMemoryWarning];
  // Dispose of any resources that can be recreated.
}
-(void)viewWillAppear:(BOOL)animated
{
  NSUserDefaults *userDefaults = [NSUserDefaults standardUserDefaults];
  arrayFetchFromDefaults = [userDefaults objectForKey:@"selectedcheckmark"];
  arrProductSelectDeSelectCheckMark = [[NSMutableArray alloc]initWithArray:arrayFetchFromDefaults];
  if(arrProductSelectDeSelectCheckMark.count == 0)
  {
     arrProductSelectDeSelectCheckMark = [[NSMutableArray alloc]init];
     for(int j=0;j<[arrProductSelection count];j++)
     {
        [arrProductSelectDeSelectCheckMark addObject:@"deselected"];
     }
   }
   [tableViewCheckMarkPreviousSelectionUpdate reloadData];
}

   }
   if([[arrProductSelectDeSelectCheckMark objectAtIndex:indexPath.row] isEqualToString:@"deselected"])
     cell.accessoryType = UITableViewCellAccessoryNone;
   else
     cell.accessoryType = UITableViewCellAccessoryCheckmark;

   return cell;

           for(int i=0; i<[arrProductSelection count]; i++)
           {

           }
        }
        if([[arrProductSelectDeSelectCheckMark objectAtIndex:indexPath.row] isEqualToString:@"deselected"])
        {

        [defaults setObject:arrProductSelectDeSelectCheckMark forKey:@"selectedcheckmark"];
        [defaults synchronize];
      }
   @catch (NSException *exception) {
    NSLog(@"The exception is-%@",exception);
   }
}
@end
