TableView rounded corners and shadow

I have a tableview with three rows. I am trying to make the table rows have rounded corners and also a shadow effect around the entire tableview. For some reason, I cannot make the tableview both have the rounded corners and shadow effect but I could do them separately if I comment out the code responsible for one of the features. Here is the code I am using:

//this is for shadow effect

tableView.backgroundColor = UIColor.clearColor()

tableView.layer.shadowColor = UIColor.darkGrayColor().CGColor

tableView.layer.shadowOffset = CGSize(width: 2.0, height: 2.0

tableView.layer.shadowOpacity = 1.0

tableView.layer.shadowRadius = 2

// This is for rounded corners

tableView.layer.cornerRadius = 10

tableView.layer.masksToBounds = true

Answer

He's trying to tell you to do something like this:

let containerView:UIView = UIView(frame:self.tableView.frame)
containerView.backgroundColor = UIColor.clearColor()
containerView.layer.shadowColor = UIColor.darkGrayColor().CGColor   
containerView.layer.shadowOffset = CGSize(width: 2.0, height: 2.0)
containerView.layer.shadowOpacity = 1.0
containerView.layer.shadowRadius = 2
// This is for rounded corners
tableView.layer.cornerRadius = 10
tableView.layer.masksToBounds = true
self.view.addSubview(containerView)
containerView.addSubview(tableView)
