Swift version: 5.6
Ever since iOS 7.0, table view cells have been gray when tapped, even when you specifically told Interface Builder you wanted them to be blue. Don't worry, though: it's an easy thing to change, as long as you don't mind writing three lines of code. Specifically, you need to add something like this to your
let backgroundView = UIView() backgroundView.backgroundColor = UIColor.red cell.selectedBackgroundView = backgroundView
You can customize the view as much as you want to, but remember to keep the overall amount of work low to avoid hurting scroll performance.
