iOS: Warning "attempt to present ViewController whose view is not in the window hierarchy"

I am getting following warning when I try to present a ActivityController on navigation controller,

Attempt to present <UIActivityViewController: 0x15be1d60> on <UINavigationController: 0x14608e80> whose view is not in the window hierarchy!


I have tried to present view controller by following code,

UIActivityViewController * activityController = [[UIActivityViewController alloc] initWithActivityItems:activityItems applicationActivities:applicationActivities];
activityController.excludedActivityTypes = excludeActivities;

UIViewController *vc = self.view.window.rootViewController;
[vc presentViewController: activityController animated: YES completion:nil];

[activityController setCompletionHandler:^(NSString *activityType, BOOL completed) {
NSLog(@"completed");

}];


Whats going wrong here ?

Answer

You are trying to present a view controller from the rootViewController. In your case I think the rootViewController is not the current ViewController. Either you presented or pushed a new UIViewController on top of it. You should present a view controller from the top most view controller itself.

You need to change:

UIViewController *vc = self.view.window.rootViewController;
[vc presentViewController: activityController animated: YES completion:nil];

to:

[self presentViewController: activityController animated: YES completion:nil];
