Add swipe-dismiss logic to your view controller, supporting Auto Layout and dynamic heights.

To make use of the behavior that PanelPresenter provides, make sure your view controller conforms to PanelPresentable and set the presenter‘s viewController property to self in your initializer. Doing this at a later stage will result in weird stuff.

class SimpleViewController: UIViewController, PanelPresentable {
    let panelPresenter = PanelPresenter()
    init() {
        super.init(nibName: nil, bundle: nil)
        panelPresenter.viewController = self

Just add your views to your view, which will be added to panelPresenter‘s scroll view. And any navigation-type views can be placed in the headerContentView which will be displayed above your content and will stick to the top of the screen when scrolling.

    private lazy var simpleView: UIView = {
        let view = UIView()
        view.backgroundColor = .systemMint
        return view
    private lazy var cancelButton: UIButton = {
        let button = UIButton(type: .system)
        button.setTitle("Cancel", for: .normal)
        button.addAction(UIAction { [unowned self] _ in
            self.presentingViewController?.dismiss(animated: true)
        }, for: .touchUpInside)
        return button
    override func viewDidLoad() {
        view.tintColor = .black
        simpleView.translatesAutoresizingMaskIntoConstraints = false
        cancelButton.translatesAutoresizingMaskIntoConstraints = false
            simpleView.leadingAnchor.constraint(equalTo: view.leadingAnchor),
            simpleView.trailingAnchor.constraint(equalTo: view.trailingAnchor),
            simpleView.topAnchor.constraint(equalTo: view.topAnchor),
            simpleView.bottomAnchor.constraint(equalTo: view.bottomAnchor),
            simpleView.heightAnchor.constraint(equalToConstant: 200),
            cancelButton.leadingAnchor.constraint(equalTo: topContentView.layoutMarginsGuide.leadingAnchor),
            cancelButton.centerYAnchor.constraint(equalTo: topContentView.layoutMarginsGuide.centerYAnchor)

Example code

Check the sample app in the repository to see multiple supported scenarios for presenting your view as a panel, the simplest being comparable to the example shown above. A more complex example is StackViewController where a bunch of random, multiline labels are dynamically added to a UIStackView. The height animates whenever the a label is added or removed. In the animateChanges() method an example is shown how to animate the height change by wrapping panelPresenter.layoutIfNeeded() in an animation closure.
