Description Ievgen 2014-03-21 22:19:21 UTC
The property ContentView is null in UITableViewHeaderFooterView class instances, although I can see in debug that there is an instance of UITableViewCellContentView class in UITableViewHeaderFooterView's subviews. So I assume that this is a bug.

The same property in UITableViewCell has a reference to the instance of UITableViewCellContentView, so it works as expected.

I have checked this issue but not able to reproduce it. To reproduce this issue I have followed the steps below:

1. Create an instances of UITableViewHeaderFooterView class.
2. Checked value of “ContentView” property with the help of created instance of UITableViewHeaderFooterView class and getting it’s value as expected same as the UITableViewCell.

Yes, you are right. I think I made a mistake in my code. 

I was using my custom table header view class with a NIB that inherits UITableViewHeaderFooterView. In this case property ContentView is null. I guess this is because the content of NIB file rewrites default header view's content.

Sorry for false alarm. Please resolve the bug as designed.
