My setup is as follows: I have three view controller scenes in my Storyboard and the workflow of the app is going from A -> B -> C. From scene C back to A there is an unwind segue set up in Storyboard. The latter I trigger from the view controller of C programmatically via
[self performSegueWithIdentifier:@"unwindFromCtoA" sender:self];
For the transition from B -> C I’m using a custom (“drop down”) animation with the UIViewControllerAnimatedTransitioning protocol. When unwinding from C -> A I want the inverse of that animation.
This all worked perfectly fine until I updated my iPhone 5 to iOS 8.0.2 (from iOS 7). Now, the (inverse) animation is not triggered anymore when unwinding form C -> A. Instead, it doesn’t show any animation, it just shows immediately view A.
While trying to find the source of the problem I replaced performSegueWithIdentifier from above with
[self dismissViewControllerAnimated:YES completion:nil];
and then it does show the correct animation. But clearly I don’t unwind to A in that case. This shows that there is nothing wrong with the animation. It merely seems that performSegueWithIdentifier doesn’t trigger dismissViewControllerAnimated as it did in iOS 7.
you’ll need to use:
to pop the view off the stack. There’s one segue call, but the framework seems to call:
