editingStyleForRowAtIndexPath called three time at the same time. Why?

I've a TableView with two UILabel for each row. When the user swipe on a cell, I would like to reduce the frame of first label on my cell, in order to fix this problem:

This is my code:

- (UITableViewCell *)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath {

    static NSString *CellIdentifier = @"Cell";

    UITableViewCell *cell = [tableView dequeueReusableCellWithIdentifier:CellIdentifier];
    if (cell == nil) {
        cell = [[[UITableViewCell alloc] initWithStyle:UITableViewCellStyleValue1 reuseIdentifier:NO] autorelease];

    custom_cell = [[[UILabel alloc] initWithFrame:CGRectMake(10, 0, 200, 45)] autorelease];

    custom_cell.textColor = [UIColor blackColor];

    custom_cell.backgroundColor = [UIColor clearColor];

    [custom_cell setText:[[self.Notes objectAtIndex:indexPath.row ]objectForKey:@"Text"]];

    [cell.contentView addSubview:custom_cell];

    NSDateFormatter *dateFormat = [[NSDateFormatter alloc] init];
    [dateFormat setDateFormat: @"dd MMM yy"];

    [dateFormat setLocale:[NSLocale currentLocale]];

    NSDate *dateTmp = [[self.Notes objectAtIndex:indexPath.row] objectForKey:@"CDate"];

    cell.detailTextLabel.text = [dateFormat stringFromDate: dateTmp];

    cell.accessoryType = UITableViewCellAccessoryDisclosureIndicator;

    [dateFormat release];

    return cell;


Then, in order to reduce the frame of first label on my cell, I've written this code:

- (UITableViewCellEditingStyle)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView editingStyleForRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath {

    NSLog(@"row=%d", indexPath.row);

    custom_cell.frame = CGRectMake(10, 0, 150, 45);

    return UITableViewCellEditingStyleDelete;

The result is partially correct. The last label of my tableView is always reduced, not the right one.

Also the console print three times the NSLog message. Why?

Thanks, Alessandro from Pisa (sorry for my english!)


I'm Valerio from Pisa! You should do like this in your editingStyleForRowAtIndexPath method:

UITableViewCell *myCell = [self.tableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:indexPath];

and then set the frame to the cell.
