Ios – How to change UIPickerView height

cocoa-touchiosiphoneuikituipickerview

Is it possible to change the height of UIPickerView? Some applications seem to have shorter PickerViews but setting a smaller frame doesn't seem to work and the frame is locked in Interface Builder.

Best Solution

It seems obvious that Apple doesn't particularly invite mucking with the default height of the UIPickerView, but I have found that you can achieve a change in the height of the view by taking complete control and passing a desired frame size at creation time, e.g:

smallerPicker = [[UIPickerView alloc] initWithFrame:CGRectMake(0.0, 0.0, 320.0, 120.0)];

You will discover that at various heights and widths, there are visual glitches. Obviously, these glitches would either need to be worked around somehow, or choose another size that doesn't exhibit them.
