Answer to Stackoverflow question 2: Unable to set the title of a view controller

Unable to set the title of UINavigation Controller 
– In order to set the title, you need to set the title of the view controller. For this you need to have a navigation controller, and set its title. Then you can hide the navigation controller, if you wish. I have pasted the sample code below.
– Once you set the title of the navigation controller, then you can push the views however you like. See the sample code.
[sourcecode language=”objc”]
.h file declarations
@property (strong, nonatomic) UINavigationController *navigationController;
.m app delegate implementation
– (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:(NSDictionary *)launchOptions
self.window = [[UIWindow alloc] initWithFrame:[[UIScreen mainScreen] bounds]];
self.navigationController = [[UINavigationController alloc] init];
self.viewController = [[ViewController alloc] initWithNibName:@"ViewController" bundle:nil];
[self.navigationController pushViewController:self.viewController animated:YES];
// Override point for customization after application launch.
self.window.rootViewController = self.navigationController;
[self.window makeKeyAndVisible];
return YES;
// loading a view based on login
* Callback for session changes.
– (void)sessionStateChanged:(FBSession *)session
state:(FBSessionState) state
error:(NSError *)error
switch (state) {
case FBSessionStateOpen:
if (!error) {
// We have a valid session
NSLog(@"User session found");
//UIBarButtonItem *backButton = [[UIBarButtonItem alloc] initWithTitle:@"Back" style:UIBarButtonItemStylePlain target:nil action:nil];
testViewController *tv = [[testViewController alloc] init];
[self.navigationController pushViewController:tv animated:YES];
self.navigationController.navigationBarHidden = NO;
//navigationController.navigationItem.backBarButtonItem = backButton;
//[self.window setRootViewController:self.navigationController];
case FBSessionStateClosed:
case FBSessionStateClosedLoginFailed:
[FBSession.activeSession closeAndClearTokenInformation];
[[NSNotificationCenter defaultCenter]
if (error) {
UIAlertView *alertView = [[UIAlertView alloc]
[alertView show];
// code to hide the navigation bar in the base view controller
– (void)viewDidLoad
[super viewDidLoad];
// Do any additional setup after loading the view, typically from a nib.
self.title = @"title";
self.navigationController.navigationBarHidden = YES;
