I've seen various posts on background color for a UITableView for ios 4.2 but I just cannot seem to change the background color.
UIView *bgView = [[[UIView alloc] init] autorelease]; bgView.backgroundColor = [UIColor blackColor]; bgView.opaque = YES; self.myTableView.backgroundView = bgView;
I've placed this code in a viewDidLoad but it won't change colors. My UITableView is an IBOutlet inside a UIViewController with a UITableViewDelegate & UITableViewDataSource so I'm thinking at the viewDidLoad the UITableView is already rendered and I cannot change its background color.
EDIT * – the UITableView is grouped
