UIMenuController's copy bubble problem

Last Modified: 2013-12-21
hey, currently I have a small problem with UIMenuController's copy bubble.

My set up is that I have a TableView, and inside the TableView I have bunch of TableViewCells.
Inside each TableViewCells I have a image called balloonView
And I say show me the UIMenuController's menu in the rect which is balloonView's frame(this frame is with respect to the TableViewCell, not with respect to the window.
The problem is whichever row I tap on the table, it will show the copyMenu on same place in the window. I think it is because position of "rect"is with respect to the TableViewCell.
But what I want is that when I tap image of row X, it will show that copy menu on top of the row which i selected. How can I do that?
cell = [self tableView:tableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:indexPath];
		balloonView = (UIImageView *)[[cell.contentView viewWithTag:kMessage] viewWithTag:kBallonView];
		rect = [balloonView frame];
		UIMenuController *copyMenu = [UIMenuController sharedMenuController];
		[copyMenu setTargetRect:rect inView:cell.contentView];
		[copyMenu setMenuVisible:YES animated:YES];
