I have a view with an UIScrollView, which is bound on all 4 sides to the save area.

This ScrollView contains:

The problem: if the TableView does *not* have a definite height, then Xcode complains: “The ScrollView needs y-position or height fixed”.

But the whole point of the TableView is that the number of rows can change at run time.

The effect I want is similar to Settings → Wi-Fi where unter “Choose a Network” there is a dynamically changing list of names.
