Draggable Modal, PopUp or Menu written in Swift.
A simple modal resource that uses a UIScrollView to allow the user to close the view by removing it from the screen.
MantleModal is available through CocoaPods. To install it, simply add the following line to your Podfile:
use_frameworks! target 'ProjectName' do pod 'MantleModal' end
In case you haven’t installed CocoaPods yet, run the following command
$ gem install cocoapods
Drag the file named
RCMantleViewController.swift into your project.
Setup is faily simple, but I have plans to make it even easier later.
Add a new View Controler into your storyboard and set the Class to
RCMantleViewController and the Storyboard ID to
### Step 2 Add your own view into your storyboard which will represent the modal. Also set a unique **Storyboard ID** to it.
If you are gonna use a PopUp set the background view color transparent.
Import the module to your parent controller(if your using CocoaPods)
Activate the modal like this in your parent controller.
// Create the MantleViewController from the Storyboard using the ID let mantleViewController = storyboard!.instantiateViewControllerWithIdentifier("MantleViewController") as! RCMantleViewController // Create your modal controller with your storyboard ID let popUpViewController = storyboard!.instantiateViewControllerWithIdentifier("YourUniqueStoryboardID") as! YourViewController // Set it's delegate to be able to call 'delegate.dismissView(animated: Bool)' popUpViewController.delegate = mantleViewController // Initialize Mantle mantleViewController.setUpScrollView() // Add your modal to Mantle mantleViewController.addToScrollViewNewController(popUpViewController) // Present the modal through the MantleViewController self.presentViewController(mantleViewController, animated: false, completion: nil)
In your modal’s controller also import:
Then define your delegate helper.
var delegate: RCMantleViewDelegate!
And then dismiss the modal using this:
MantleModal currently includes some configuration which you must call before
mantleViewController.setUpScrollView(). The current configuration available includes:
// Allows you to dismiss the view by dragging up mantleViewController.bottomDismissible = false // Allows you to dismiss the view by dragging down mantleViewController.topDismissable = true // Allows you to drag to the sides to close mantleViewController.draggableToSides = false // 'appearOffset' moves the menu closer to the edge so that it appears quicker mantleViewController.appearOffset = CGFloat(290) // '290' could be the distance between the top of the popup and the top of the screen // Makes the view present from the top, can be set multiple times before presenting // Also makes it hide to the top. mantleViewController.appearFromTop = true // // default = false
You can also access the ScrollView and modify its options, just make sure you do it after calling
mantleViewController.scrollView.bounces = false
How it works
The view you are actually presenting is actually a
UIScrollView with a larger
UIView inside that contains your own view along with extra empty space that is fully created by
RCMantleViewController will then detect when your view is no longer centered in the ScrollView and dismiss the complete view. It does not use native modal animations and uses the
UIScrollView‘s scroll to content animation.
