In order to integrate the library into Object-C project, please follow the instructions from this doc.


  let showcase = MaterialShowcase()
  showcase.setTargetView(view: button) // always required to set targetView
  showcase.primaryText = "Action 1"
  showcase.secondaryText = "Click here to go into details" {
    // You can save showcase state here
    // Later you can check and do not show it again

Note: should be called after your views are placed correctly, for example inside UIViewController's viewWillAppear() or viewDidAppear() function. You SHOULD NOT call it inside viewDidLoad() because views have not laid down correctly yet, showcase can not calculate these views positions and it results in unexpected errors.

Supported target views

There are several target view supported.

  // Any UIView
  showcase.setTargetView(view: view)
  // UIBarButtonItem
  showcase.setTargetView(barButtonItem: barItem)
  // UITabBar item
  showcase.setTargetView(tabBar: tabBar, itemIndex: 0)
  // UItableViewCell
  showcase.setTargetView(tableView: tableView, section: 0, row: 0)

Handle showcase status

  // Right after showing. {
    // You can save showcase state here
  // To handle other behaviors when showcase is dismissing, delegate should be declared.
  showcase.delegate = self
  extension ViewController: MaterialShowcaseDelegate {
    func showCaseWillDismiss(showcase: MaterialShowcase, didTapTarget: Bool) {
      print("Showcase \(showcase.primaryText) will dismiss.")
    func showCaseDidDismiss(showcase: MaterialShowcase, didTapTarget: Bool) {
      print("Showcase \(showcase.primaryText) dimissed.")
