UITableView Cell selected Color?

I have created a custom

UITableViewCell
. The table view is showing data fine. What I am stuck in is when user touches cell of tableview, then I want to show the background color of the cell other than the default [blue color] values for highlighting the selection of cell.
I use this code but nothing happens:

cell.selectedBackgroundView.backgroundColor=[UIColor blackColor];

Answer

I think you were on the right track, but according to the class definition for selectedBackgroundView:

The default is nil for cells in plain-style tables (UITableViewStylePlain) and non-nil for section-group tables UITableViewStyleGrouped).

Therefore, if you're using a plain-style table, then you'll need to alloc-init a new UIView having your desired background colour and then assign it to selectedBackgroundView.

Alternatively, you could use:

cell.selectionStyle = UITableViewCellSelectionStyleGray;

if all you wanted was a gray background when the cell is selected. Hope this helps.
