Instance Property

allowsSelection

A Boolean value that determines whether users can select a row.

Declaration

@property(nonatomic) BOOL allowsSelection;

Discussion

If the value of this property is YES (the default), users can select rows. If you set it to NO, they cannot select rows. Setting this property affects cell selection only when the table view is not in editing mode. If you want to restrict selection of cells in editing mode, use allowsSelectionDuringEditing.
