iOS - Search or compare korean text

In our UItableView search, we are using the below code to search a typed text in the cell content

 NSComparisonResult result = [eachCellContent compare:searchText options:NSDiacriticInsensitiveSearch|NSCaseInsensitiveSearch range:NSMakeRange(0, [searchText length])];

This is working fine. But this is not working with korean text.

suppose one of the cell text is "소".//we are getting this combination by typing these two letters   ㅅ and ㅗ
If we type ㅅ only , our compare method is not working and so not listing the "소". (it is working if we type both ㅅ and ㅗ )

But the above example is working well with AddressBook application.

Is there any other compare method to support this ? (we also need this NSDiacriticInsensitiveSearch|NSCaseInsensitiveSearch )

Updated on 2013-01-14

Got solution from stackoverflow

NSString *normalizedContent = [eachCellContent decomposedStringWithCanonicalMapping];
NSString *normalizedSearch = [searchText decomposedStringWithCanonicalMapping];
and then compare these.

NSString *eachCellContent = @"소";
NSString *searchText = @"ㅅ";

NSString *normalizedContent = [eachCellContent decomposedStringWithCanonicalMapping];
NSString *normalizedSearch = [searchText decomposedStringWithCanonicalMapping];

NSComparisonResult result = [normalizedContent compare:normalizedSearch
                                                 range:NSMakeRange(0, [normalizedSearch length])
                                                locale:[NSLocale currentLocale]];
if (result == NSOrderedSame) {
// Output: same

application executable is missing a required architecture. At least one of the following architecture must be present armv6

Getting this error when submit a universal application.
"application executable is missing a required architecture. At least one of the following architecture must be present armv6"

The issue was with changes in Xcode 4.5.x for ios 6
Its minimum supported os version is 4.3
So we have to set the Deployment Target = 4.3 or greater.

Xcode : iPad mini simulator

The 'iPad mini' has the resolution of iPad which is 1024 x 768.

 iPad mini does not have a Retina Display. It has greater pixel density. But the pixel density is not  good as Retina Display

So we can use the Device Simulator labeled as 'iPad' for testing 'iPad mini'

iOS - Getting thumbnail of PDF document

We can get the thumbnail of any page of pdf document. The following example is getting the thumbnail of first page

            NSURL* pdfFileUrl = [NSURL fileURLWithPath:filePath];
            CGPDFDocumentRef pdf = CGPDFDocumentCreateWithURL((CFURLRef)pdfFileUrl);
            CGPDFPageRef page = CGPDFDocumentGetPage(pdf, 1);//for the first  page
            CGRect aRect = CGPDFPageGetBoxRect(page, kCGPDFCropBox);           
            CGContextRef context = UIGraphicsGetCurrentContext();
            CGContextTranslateCTM(context, 0.0, aRect.size.height);
            CGContextScaleCTM(context, 1.0, -1.0);
            CGContextTranslateCTM(context, -(aRect.origin.x), -(aRect.origin.y));
            CGContextSetGrayFillColor(context, 1.0, 1.0);
            CGContextFillRect(context, aRect);
            CGAffineTransform pdfTransform = CGPDFPageGetDrawingTransform(page, kCGPDFCropBox, aRect, 0, false);
            CGContextConcatCTM(context, pdfTransform);
            CGContextDrawPDFPage(context, page);
            UIImage *thumbnail = UIGraphicsGetImageFromCurrentImageContext();           

iOS - get the thumbnail of a video

We can get the thumbnail of any time. The following example is at time 0

MPMoviePlayerController *moviePlayer = [[MPMoviePlayerController alloc] initWithContentURL:[NSURL fileURLWithPath:filePath]];
moviePlayer.shouldAutoplay = NO;
UIImage *thumbnail = [moviePlayer thumbnailImageAtTime:0 timeOption:MPMovieTimeOptionNearestKeyFrame];
[moviePlayer stop];
[moviePlayer release];

Another way to get the frame -
