iphone app - detect which tab bar item was pressed

i have a tab bar based application, with more than 5 tab bar items - so i get 4 of them directly showing in the view and the rest available by selecting the "More" tab. When a tab bar item is pressed, i want to detect which one was it.

So, in the

- (void)tabBarController:(UITabBarController *)tabBarCtrl didSelectViewController:(UIViewController *)viewController
method, i use
to get the item's title.

This works for the tabs visible in the view -that is the 4 first and the "More" tab- but does not work for the rest of my tab bar items which are shown in the list after pressing the "More" tab.

I can see that the didSelectViewController method is not even called when selecting a tab from the "More" list.

How can i detect any of them when pressed?

Thank you in advance.


How to get title of UITabBarItem in the More section?

- (void)tabBarController:(UITabBarController *)tabBarController 
 didSelectViewController:(UIViewController *)viewController
    NSLog(@"controller class: %@", NSStringFromClass([viewController class]));
    NSLog(@"controller title: %@", viewController.title);

    if (viewController == tabBarController.moreNavigationController)
        tabBarController.moreNavigationController.delegate = self;
