iOS Question

UIPickerView as inputView of UITextField

I've read a lot about how I can use a

UIPickerView
as the
inputView
of my
UITextField
. The thing is, I am able to call the
UIPickerView
when I tap on the
UITextField
. However, my app always loads with the
UIPickerView
shown. I have already tried changing the
myownpickerview.hidden = YES;
in
viewDidLoad
, but this causes problems when I click on the
UITextField
. It won't show up, and if I click multiple times, the debugger shows that there would be an error.

Can anyone point me in the right direction? I only want the
UIPickerView
shown after I tap on the
UITextField


I'm still working on my first ever iOS app. Please be patient. Thank you =)

Try this, it works fine, put it in viewdidload.

yourpicker = [[UIPickerView alloc] initWithFrame:CGRectMake(0, 50, 100, 150)];
    [yourpicker setDataSource: self];
    [yourpicker setDelegate: self];
    yourpicker.showsSelectionIndicator = YES;
    self.yourtextfield.inputView = yourpicker;

do not [self.view addSubview: yourpicker]; this
