UIPickerView as inputView of UITextField

I’ve read a lot about how I can use a UIPickerView as the inputView of my UITextField. The thing is, I am able to call the UIPickerView when I tap on the UITextField. However, my app always loads with the UIPickerView shown. I have already tried changing the myownpickerview.hidden = YES; in viewDidLoad, but this causes problems when I click on the UITextField. It won’t show up, and if I click multiple times, the debugger shows that there would be an error.

Can anyone point me in the right direction? I only want the UIPickerView shown after I tap on the UITextField

    Try this, it works fine, put it in viewdidload.

    yourpicker = [[UIPickerView alloc] initWithFrame:CGRectMake(0, 50, 100, 150)];
        [yourpicker setDataSource: self];
        [yourpicker setDelegate: self];
        yourpicker.showsSelectionIndicator = YES;
        self.yourtextfield.inputView = yourpicker;

    do not [self.view addSubview: yourpicker]; this
