Pass certain touches through UIScrollView to underlying views

I've got a view that has two subviews:

  1. Subview A, a UIView (contains other views, which contain UIButtons, views with gesturerecognizer ...)

  2. Subview B, a UIScrollView (contains some views, but has transparent regions).

The scrollview is on top of Subview A and has the full device width/height. I want the user to be able to interact - through the transparent regions - with all those buttons and gesture reconizers below the scrollview, while still being able to scroll (so passing on the hittest is out).

Seems like an easy enough task, but I can't get it to work. The scrollview is always blocking all touches.

Any idea how I would accomplish that? Thanks!


I've somewhat solved this now by adding the view that's supposed to be below the scrollview to the scrollview as the first subview, and shifting its position in scrollViewDidScroll:

-(void)scrollViewDidScroll:(UIScrollView *)scrollView {
    [self updateBottomViewPosition];

- (void)updateBottomViewPosition {
    CGPoint contentOffset = _mainScrollView.contentOffset;

    CGFloat y = MAX(contentOffset.y, 0);

    CGRect frame = _bottomPage.frame;
    if (y != frame.origin.y) {
        frame.origin.y = y;
        _leadPage.frame = frame;

This works, but it's probably not as elegant as possible.
