A wrapper for search results that you want to embed in a container view controller.


Although you can present a search controller object modally, you should never push one onto a navigation controller’s stack or use one as a child of another container view controller. Instead, embed an instance of this class and let it manage the presentation of the search controller’s content.


Initializing a Search Container View Controller

init(searchController: UISearchController)

Initializes and returns a search container view controller with the specified search controller object.
