Instance Method


Removes the called view controller from its parent view controller.


- (void)removeFromParentViewController;


Use this method to remove a child view controller from its parent view controller, unless you want to perform work during the removal. In that case, instead override the removeChildViewControllerAtIndex: method to perform that work and call that method.

This is a convenience method that calls the removeChildViewControllerAtIndex: method, automatically supplying the appropriate index value as an argument.
