table view cell iOS
collection view cell iOS



If the control is a header cell of a table view or collection view, index path consists of a single positive integer value representing the position of the header cell in the parent structure. Index values begin at 1.

If the control is subordinate to a header cell, its index path value has two parts: the index path value of its parent header, followed by its index (starting at 1) with respect to other children of the parent header. The two values are separated by a dot.
