UITextView not Scrolling in tvOS

I have a

UITextView
in my TV app, when i try to make it focusable then the UI is not making it focusable and i am unable to scroll it. I read some questions about it and some says that its a known issue and we should use storyboards. Actually i am using storyboards but still unable to get this to work. I have also tried to make it
selectable
,
scrollEnabled
and
userInteractionEnabled
and then finally also tried this line of code but none of them is working.

descriptionLbl.panGestureRecognizer.allowedTouchTypes = [NSNumber(integer: UITouchType.Direct.rawValue)]


I also tried to print
bounds
abd
contentSize
of the
UITextView
and here is the log

Content Size (740.0, 914.0)
Bounds (25.0, 0.0, 740.0, 561.0)


Here is my code can some body help me

@IBOutlet weak var descriptionLbl: UITextView!
var currentModel : Model?


override func viewDidLoad() {
super.viewDidLoad()

descriptionLbl.selectable = true
descriptionLbl.scrollEnabled = true
descriptionLbl.userInteractionEnabled = true


descriptionLbl.panGestureRecognizer.allowedTouchTypes = [NSNumber(integer: UITouchType.Direct.rawValue)]


descriptionLbl.text = (currentModel?.description)! + (currentModel?.description)! + (currentModel?.description)!
descriptionLbl?.contentInset = UIEdgeInsets(top: 0.0, left: -25.0, bottom: 0.0, right: 0.0);


}


i guess i should not be doing these many tricks but it is not working in any way. The focus is actually coming to
UITextView
but it does not scroll. Any ideas?

Answer

I believe you want Indirect, not Direct touches. Here is how I set up my focusable, scrollable UITextView:

self.selectable = YES;
self.userInteractionEnabled = YES;
self.panGestureRecognizer.allowedTouchTypes = @[@(UITouchTypeIndirect)];
