Hello,

I have a single column uipicker in Xcode and I would like to have text pop up/appear that contains totally new text but is triggered by the picker selection. For example if I have a column of colors and Red is selected in the picker --- below the picker (not within), I want the text to appears as "apples, brick, strawberries."

Thank you!

What you need to implement for your UIPicker is this;

- (void)pickerView:(UIPickerView *)pickerView didSelectRow: (NSInteger)row inComponent:(NSInteger)component {
    // Something is selected so now make text appear based on what is selected.
}

Open in new window


Here is the Apple Developer Reference on this.  Note you will get an index number of what was selected in the UIPicker.

In case you need an example there are lots.  I have just chosen one Example which I have not tried.

Is there a way to select a row of text but have alternate text appear below the picker in a label? Thanks

Your question seems very simple, or I am not understanding you.  Once the didSelectRow method is called because the user chooses something, you can make a label elsewhere anything you like.  Of course you will need to check what has been selected and then act appropriately based on the choice.
