pass uigesturerecognzer data to parent controller

There is a master view controller with this method

- (void)revealGesture:(UIPanGestureRecognizer *)recognizer{ 

which works when I send it a mesage froma child viewcontroller using a swipe:

UIPanGestureRecognizer *navigationBarPanGestureRecognizer = [[UIPanGestureRecognizer alloc] initWithTarget:self.navigationController.parentViewController action:@selector(revealGesture:)];
[self.navigationController.navigationBar addGestureRecognizer:navigationBarPanGestureRecognizer];

I want to pass the message on from within the child viewController so I can do some house keeping first

    UIPanGestureRecognizer *navigationBarPanGestureRecognizer = [[UIPanGestureRecognizer alloc] initWithTarget:self action:@selector(revealGesture:)];
    [self.navigationController.navigationBar addGestureRecognizer:navigationBarPanGestureRecognizer];


- (void)revealGesture:(UIPanGestureRecognizer *)recognizer
    [displaySearch resignFirstResponder];
    RevealController *revealController = [self.navigationController.parentViewController isKindOfClass:[RevealController class]] ? (RevealController *)self.navigationController.parentViewController : nil;

    NSDictionary *data = [NSDictionary dictionaryWithObjectsAndKeys: recognizer, @"recognizer", nil];

    [revealController performSelector:@selector(revealGesture:) withObject:data];

Yes, all I'm trying to do is dismiss the keyboard before carrying on with a bit of code that works fine if I just target 'self.navigationController.parentViewController' directly

How do I add (UIPanGestureRecognizer *)recognizer to the NSDictionary?

My code crashes with

-[__NSCFDictionary state]: unrecognized selector sent to instance 0x8619860

EDIT Proposed solution worked but keyboard didn't respond, needed to chage the line to

[self searchBarCancelButtonClicked:searchBar];

where searchBar is instance of UISearchBar


It looks like revealGesture is expecting a UIPanGestureRecognizer as its parameter but you are passing an NSDictionary. Try passing the gesture recognizer directly.

[revealController performSelector:@selector(revealGesture:) withObject: recognizer];
