How to get UITextField value on custom UITableView cell

I'm new to IOS development and i'm trying to develop my first app.

So my problem is... I've got a UITableView with custom cells, each cell contains an UITextField. When I press a button I'd like to put each UITextField value in a NSMutableArray.

I think I've got to do something like that but I'm not sure:

NSMutableArray *playerNameArray = [[NSMutableArray alloc] init];

for (int i=0; i < nbPlayers; i++){ //nbPlayers is the number of rows in the UITableView
    NSString *playerName =UITextField.text;
    [playerNameArray addObject:[NSString stringWithFormat: @"%@", playerName]];

If someone can help me.... :) Thanks


You need to reference the instance of your UITextField, what you're doing there is attempting to call text on the UITextField class. Something like this would probably solve your problem:

NSMutableArray *playerNameArray = [[NSMutableArray alloc] init];

for (int i=0; i < nbPlayers; i++){ //nbPlayers is the number of rows in the UITableView

    MyTableViewCellSubclass *theCell = (id)[self.tableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:[NSIndexPath indexPathForRow:i inSection:0]];
    UITextField *cellTextField = [theCell textField];

    NSString *playerName = [cellTextField text];
    [playerNameArray addObject:playerName];

The text field passed to your delegate is a subview of the cell's contentView.

- (BOOL)textFieldShouldEndEditing:(UITextField *)textField
      UITableViewCell *cell = (UITableViewCell*) textField.superview.superview;
      NSIndexPath *txtIndPath = [self.tblPendingDeliveryData indexPathForCell:cell];

      write you code
      if(textField.tag == 1)
          NSMutableDictionary *dict = [self.arrPendingDeliveryData objectAtIndex:txtIndPath.row];
          [dict setObject:textField.text forKey:@"ReOrder"];


In txtIndPath you will get active textfield's indexpath. assign the textfield tag property with necessary value. works best for me, hope it will also help you.
