I want to do something like in the GIF
I tried 2 ways, one was hiding the elements on selecting the row and showing others, but that's not really elegant and doesn't work very well
and second was creating 2 views, one with labels, another with buttons, adding them as subviews to cell.contentView but that caused some issues with other cells as they were displaying wrong data. How can I recreate something like this?
I think something like this would work:
Use 2 different UITableViewCells: add them to the table view in your storyboard and design them separately, also you can use 2 different UITableViewCell subclasses for them
Have an array in the tableview's datasource class that will define the type of the cell from each row (e.g. the simplest solution would be an array of integers, with values: 0 representing the first cell, 1 representing the second cell)
Initialise that array with 0s for each row
tableView(_ tableView: UITableView, cellForRowAt indexPath: IndexPath) -> UITableViewCell :
tableView(_ tableView: UITableView, didSelectRowAt indexPath: IndexPath) :
tableView.reloadRows(at: [indexPath], with: .fade)
EDIT: Your solution is also a good one, but it can cause problems when the cells are dequeued, so if a cell with the wrong subviews is dequeued then you need to switch the subviews back in the
cellForRowAt indexPath datasource method.
