1. Conform your view controller to the AwesomeSpotlightViewDelegate protocol:

class ViewController: UIViewController, AwesomeSpotlightViewDelegate

2. Assign the delegate to your AwesomeSpotlightView view instance:

spotlightView.delegate = self

3. Implement the delegate protocol methods:

Note: All of the methods are optional. Implement only those that are needed.

  • func spotlightView(_ spotlightView: AwesomeSpotlightView, willNavigateToIndex index: Int)
  • func spotlightView(_ spotlightView: AwesomeSpotlightView, didNavigateToIndex index: Int)
  • func spotlightViewWillCleanup(_ spotlightView: AwesomeSpotlightView, atIndex index: Int)
  • func spotlightViewDidCleanup(_ spotlightView: AwesomeSpotlightView)
