Sometimes, interruptions such as phone call occur and disturb a regular behavior of an app in iPhone or iPad.
For example, I created one UIScrollView instance and implemented UIScrollView delegate methods: scrollViewWillBeginDragging and scrollViewDidEndDragging(and scrollViewDidEndDecelerating).
A scrollViewWillBeginDragging method deactivated all custom buttons in my app.
Then scrollViewDidEndDragging and scrollViewDidEndDecelerating methods activated these custom buttons. That is, while the user scrolled, all custom buttons became deactivated for a while.
The problem was that while the user
started to drag and just held an
UIScrollView instance, if I took a
screenshot by pressing a home button
and a power button, then any of
get called. So the app became messed
I implemented a UIApplicationWillResignActiveNotification method in my UIViewController, but it didn't get called after taking a screenshot.
How can I catch any kind of interruption that disturbs a regular flow of events?
Sometimes, touchesEnd and touchesCanceled didn't get called too due to an interruption.
I faced the same problem and got rid of it by using
performSelector:withObject:afterDelay method of NSObject.
[NSObject cancelPreviousPerformRequestsWithTarget:yourController]; [yourController deactivateButtons]; [yourController performSelector:@selector(activateButtons) withObject:nil afterDelay:0.5];
You can try this technique and combine it with other that you mentioned.
Hope, that will help. Good luck!
