on a screen that shows an
showsUserLocation = YES). Which seems weird in the first place (Apple should handle this for
MKMapView automatically, but XCode was complaining when I didn't do it).
So I get the alert view that says the application wants to use your location, but then the alert view disappears on its own.
Why does the alert view disappear on its own?
Only thing I can think of is that I am calling
requestWhenInUseAuthorization in the
initWithCoder method. I'm only doing that because I think I saw the Xcode complaint when calling it from viewDidLoad.
You're probably being ARC'd. Make sure that you still have a reference to your CLLocationManager. You can easily do this by making it a property.
ARC stands for Automatic Reference Counting. In an ARC-enabled project (and unless you are working on something really old or you turned it off on purpose, your project is an ARC-enabled project) you need to keep references to objects that you'll use later on. CLLocationManager doesn't return a singleton so you need to keep a reference to it in your classes that care. Something like this:
@property (strong, nonatomic) CLLocationManager *locationManager
See Apple's ARC documentation for details. (And thanks Falko for hunting down the deep link to that.)
