How to add a page indicator inside the navigation bar?

Edit: I just figured out that navigationController.viewControllers only contains the stack.
I will post an edit in a minute

Edit 2: Well, it seems that you have to know the number of view controllers before hand.

Maybe not the best solution, but it works for me. Just tried 🙂

@interface ViewController () <UINavigationControllerDelegate>
@property (nonatomic, strong) UIPageControl *pageControl;

@implementation ViewController

- (void)viewDidLoad
    [super viewDidLoad];

    UINavigationController *navController = self.navigationController;
    navController.delegate = self;

    navController.navigationBar.barTintColor = [UIColor colorWithRed:.2

    CGSize navBarSize = navController.navigationBar.bounds.size;
    CGPoint origin = CGPointMake( navBarSize.width/2, navBarSize.height/2 );

    self.pageControl = [[UIPageControl alloc] initWithFrame:CGRectMake(origin.x, origin.y,
                                                                       0, 0)];

    //Or whatever number of viewcontrollers you have
    [self.pageControl setNumberOfPages:2];

    [navController.navigationBar addSubview:self.pageControl];

    navController.delegate = self;

- (void)navigationController:(UINavigationController *)navigationController willShowViewController:(UIViewController *)viewController animated:(BOOL)animated
    int index = [navigationController.viewControllers indexOfObject:viewController];
    self.pageControl.currentPage = index;
