I am currently porting an existing iOS 6 app to iOS 7 and am facing some strange behaviour when values passed to a new instance of a view controller by constructor are not available on ViewDidLoad().
This seems only to happen when the controller called is a sub class of another controller which accesses the TableView in its own constructor.
See a failing test attached.
I am currently on 22.214.171.124 (Hash: 4cfca2f, Build date: 2013-20-09 23:14:32-0400).
This is normal.
Accessing TableView in DetailBaseDialog.ctor will end up calling ViewDidLoad, so you end up in DetailDialog's ViewDidLoad method before its ctor has been executed.
That's not the behaviour I would expect here. But ok.
Conceptually it's the equivalent to this: https://gist.github.com/rolfbjarne/8c9d4598d8e9ec2c511e, since Objective-C calls ViewDidLoad when you fetch the TableView property.
Okay. The strange thing about that is, that it worked until I switched to iOS 7.
What probably happened is that iOS doesn't call ViewDidLoad when fetching the TableView property in previous versions.
