UICollectionView draw lines between the cells
Is there a way to draw lines between the cells in a UICollectionView? I'm not looking to add a border to each cell, that will result in drawing the lines only if there are any cells in the collection. What I'm looking for is something like UITableView's lines: they are there even if the table view has 0 cells.
I solved this by adding views to the collectionView. I used the cell frames coordinates to determine where I wanted to draw.
However, there is probably a better way of doing this?
You can create a proper background for UITableView if your cells are of the same height. Draw the pattern image and apply it as a backgroundColor property:
UIImage *patternImage = [UIImage imageNamed:@"pattern.png"]; tableView.backgroundColor = [UIColor colorWithPatternImage:patternImage];
UPD: Comment to this answer in incorrect. Background will scroll with tableView (or scrollView) content.
