1 2 let newsFeed = ABKNewsFeedTableViewController() self.navigationController?.pushViewController(newsFeed, animated: true)

- If a delegate is NOT set the Done button will dismiss the modal view
- If a delegate is set the Done button will call the delegate, and the delegate itself will be responsible for dismissing the view
1 2 ABKNewsFeedViewController *newsFeed = [[ABKNewsFeedViewController alloc] init]; [self presentViewController:newsFeed animated:YES completion:nil];
1 2 let newsFeed = ABKNewsFeedViewController() self.present(newsFeed, animated: true, completion: nil)
The News Feed sample app contains examples of the view controllers.
