Instance Method


Causes the view (or one of its embedded text fields) to resign the first responder status.


- (BOOL)endEditing:(BOOL)force;



Specify YES to force the first responder to resign, regardless of whether it wants to do so.

Return Value

YES if the view resigned the first responder status or NO if it did not.


This method looks at the current view and its subview hierarchy for the text field that is currently the first responder. If it finds one, it asks that text field to resign as first responder. If the force parameter is set to YES, the text field is never even asked; it is forced to resign.
