UIViewController.LoadViewIfNeeded Method

Definition

If necessary, synchronously loads the View from a Storyboard or NIB.

[Foundation.Export("loadViewIfNeeded")]
[ObjCRuntime.Introduced(ObjCRuntime.PlatformName.iOS, 9, 0, ObjCRuntime.PlatformArchitecture.All, null)]

Attributes

Remarks

This method can be used to ensure that the View object has been instantiated, if the UIViewController has an associated Storyboard or NIB. (See also ViewIfLoaded.)


var newVC = UIStoryboard.FromName("Main", NSBundle.MainBundle).InstantiateInitialViewController();
if (newVC.ViewIfLoaded == null)
{
    //This call blocks until the View is instantiated
    newVC.LoadViewIfNeeded();
}
