Instance Property


A Boolean value indicating whether the title should be displayed in a large format.


@property(nonatomic, readwrite, assign) BOOL prefersLargeTitles;


When this property is set to YES, the navigation bar allows the title to be displayed out-of-line and using a larger font. The navigation item used to build the bar must specify whether it wants its title displayed in the large or small format. Use the largeTitleDisplayMode property to configure the title's appearance.

When the property is set to NO, the navigation bar displays the title inline with the other bar button items.
