Swift Question

Dismissing of UIImagePickerController dismisses presenting view controller also

I am working on a project that uses tabbar system. One of the item of tabbar is JobPostingViewController. I Embed it in UINavigationController. There is a UIButton called add new job in this view controller .I implemented pushviewcontroller to go CreateJobPostViewController. There I need to add UIImagePickerController to choose the image. When i tap done button or choose an image from library it dismisses to JobPostingViewController. But it should go to the CreateJobPostViewController.
Any one please help me. Thanks in advance.

You can see the issue from this link

Code in JobPostingViewController

@IBAction func openCreateJob(sender: AnyObject) {
let vc = self.storyboard?.instantiateViewControllerWithIdentifier("CreateJobPostViewController") as! CreateJobPostViewController
self.navigationController?.pushViewController(vc, animated: true)
}


Code in CreateJobPostViewController

@IBAction func addImages(sender: AnyObject) {
imagePicker.allowsEditing = false
imagePicker.sourceType = .PhotoLibrary
presentViewController(imagePicker, animated: true, completion: nil)
}
func imagePickerController(picker: UIImagePickerController, didFinishPickingMediaWithInfo info: [String : AnyObject]) {
picker.dismissViewControllerAnimated(true, completion: nil)
}
func imagePickerControllerDidCancel(picker: UIImagePickerController) {
picker.dismissViewControllerAnimated(true, completion: nil)
}

Answer

try to add the imagepicker as a subview to your CreateJobPostViewController insted of presenting it and then remove it from parent in the delegtes

@IBAction func openCreateJob(sender: AnyObject) {

var picker: UIImagePickerController = UIImagePickerController()
picker.delegate = self
picker.allowsEditing = false
picker.sourceType = .PhotoLibrary
self.addChildViewController(picker)
picker.didMoveToParentViewController(self)
self.view!.addSubview(picker.view!)
}

and then

 func imagePickerControllerDidCancel(picker: UIImagePickerController) {

    picker.view!.removeFromSuperview()
    picker.removeFromParentViewController()
    }
