UIImageView inside a UITableViewCell

I'm trying to display a UIImageView inside a UITableViewCell.

Inside method - (UITableViewCell *)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath I have:

- (UITableViewCell *)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath
    static NSString *CellIdentifier = @"Cell";

    UITableViewCell *cell = [tableView dequeueReusableCellWithIdentifier:CellIdentifier];
    if (cell == nil) {
        cell = [[UITableViewCell alloc] initWithStyle:UITableViewCellStyleDefault reuseIdentifier:CellIdentifier];

    CGSize cellSize = cell.frame.size;
    CGFloat cellWidth = cellSize.width;
    CGFloat cellHeight = cellSize.height;

    CGRect imageFrame = CGRectMake(0, 0, 70, cellHeight);
    UIImageView * image = [[UIImageView alloc] initWithFrame:imageFrame];
    [image setImage:[UIImage imageWithContentsOfFile:@"cyan.jpg"]];

    CGRect nameFrame = CGRectMake(80, 0, cellWidth-80, cellHeight/2);
    UILabel * nameLabel = [[UILabel alloc] initWithFrame:nameFrame];
    nameLabel.text = @"Name: John Doe";

    CGRect jobFrame = CGRectMake(80, 20, cellWidth-80, cellHeight/2);
    UILabel * jobLabel = [[UILabel alloc] initWithFrame:jobFrame];
    jobLabel.text = @"Job: IT-Consultant";

    [cell addSubview:image];
    [cell addSubview:nameLabel];
    [cell addSubview:jobLabel];

    return cell;

The labels are displaying perfectly but I don't see the image.

Any help would be appreciated.


imageWithContentsOfFile: expects a path to be sent to it. Use imageNamed: instead, or get hold of the path first by using NSBundle's pathForResource... methods first to get the path.

Also, if the image is the same for every cell, you should add the image view inside the cell=nil block, or you will be adding the view over and over again.
