How can I use custom UITableViewCell and UITableView in the same xib


I want to use a custom UITableviewCell with UITableView in same xib without creating a UITableViewCell class?

As you can see bellow i set the identifier for UITableViewCell and used it like this:

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

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


But Not Working?

Add a UITableViewCell *customCell property to your view controller (for example, your file ShowUsers.h)...

@property (nonatomic, strong) IBOutlet UITableViewCell *customCell;

and connect it to the custom cell in your xib. Then use the following code in cellForRow (for example, your file ShowUsers.m) :

if (cell == nil) {
    [[NSBundle mainBundle] loadNibNamed:@"NibName" owner:self options:nil];
    cell = self.customCell;
    self.customCell = nil;
