LGButton

Install

To integrate LGButton into your Xcode project using CocoaPods, specify it in your Podfile:

use_frameworks!

pod 'LGButton'

Icons and images

You can add images/icons to your button, icons are taken from different ready to use font icons collections, images can be imported directly from your project assets folder.

You can customise icons/images on the left and/or on the right of the button title.

Icons

Icons are managed by SwiftIconFont integration, so you can easily add and customise button icons by choosing from the most popular font icons collections. In particular:

Collection Font name Cheat Sheet
Font Awesome fa List
Ion Icons io List
Octicons oc List
Open Iconic ic List
Material Icon ma List
Themify ti List
Map Icons mi List

The main properties that you need to set in order to use font icons are:

  • Icon Font Name: you can pick one value from the table above, different values will be ignored (please consider that not all the icons may be available since this library may not be updated right after a font library update).

  • Icon String: the icon name taken from the cheatsheet without the collection prefix.

So, if you want to use fa-align-left from Font Awesome, Icon Font Name will be fa and Icon String will be align-left.

Images

Set the Image source property in order to use an image from your assets folder.

Note: if Image source is set, every other property about the font icon on the same side will be ignored.

Usage

Drag and drop an UIView object into your view controller and set its class and module to LGButton.

class_name

Customise your button by setting the properties from the Interface Builder.
