Drawing selected state on custom UITableViewCell

I have a customer UITableViewCell whose whole display is drawn indrawRect. When it draws it creates CGLayers so that it can reuse certain pieces when something is changed.

I have changed my UITableViewCellSelectionStyle to "None" because I don't want the default selected view to cover my drawing.

My problem is that I call setNeedsDisplay in setSelected:animated: for my cell but by the time drawRect is called, setSelected:animated: has already been called again to deselect the cell. In my table view controller didSelectRowAtIndexPath, I call deselectRowAtIndexPath as Apple advises.

EDIT - I have also tried called the setNeedsDisplay on my cell from my table view controller's (NSIndexPath *)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView willSelectRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath but that didn't change anything.

Any ideas? Thanks.


Use the table cell's selectedBackgroundView property. If you assign a custom view to that, it'll get shown and hidden at the same time as the default selection backgrounds—in other words, without having to wait for the setNeedsDisplay to get around to calling drawRect: on the cell itself.
