CreditCardRow is a custom row for Eureka in which the user will be able to input a credit card, its expiration date and the CVV/CVC value. It has a default UI design but that can be easily changed to fit (almost) any other design.


import Eureka
import CreditCardRow

class ViewController: FormViewController {

    override func viewDidLoad() {

        // Append the default CreditCardRow and my custom MyCreditCardRow
        form +++ Section()
            <<< CreditCardRow()

A custom row is not worth much if it is not customisable. Therefore this row aims to be pretty customisable. Ideally you should be able to use all the logic implemented here with a completely different design. You should also be able to easily switch some basic behaviour.

For basic styling like fonts, colors, margins, separators you should use cellSetup and cellUpdate. For more complex stuff there are other ways to create what you want.

CreditCardRow includes row navigation so that the user can navigate from one field to the next by tapping a button in the accessoryView of the cell. If you change the order of the text fields then you should also override the row navigation functionality.

CreditCardRow parameters

CreditCardRow has the following variables that can be used/changed:

  • var numberSeparator: String = " ": Separator for the credit card number. Supports multi-character strings like " - " for example.
  • var expirationSeparator: Character = "/": Separator used between month and year numbers in expiration field.
  • var maxCVVLength: Int = 4: Maximum length for CVV/CVC field
  • var maxCreditCardNumberLength = 19: Maximum length for Credit Card number. Credit Card length can be up to 19 after ISO 7812-1. 6 digits IIN, 12 account digits and a check digit.

For example you can do this:

<<< CreditCardRow() {
      $0.numberSeparator = "-"
      $0.expirationSeparator = "-"
      $0.maxCreditCardNumberLength = 16
      $0.maxCVVLength = 3

CreditCardCell parameters:

The CreditCardCell has the following variables (all of them are outlets and can be connected from a nib file):

  • var horizontalSeparator: UIView?: Horizontal separator between number field and expiration and CVV fields in original cell
  • var verticalSeparator: UIView?: Vertical separator between expiration and CVV fields in original cell
  • var numberField: PaddedTextField!: Text field for the credit card number
  • var expirationField: PaddedTextField?: Text field for the expiration date of the credit card. This is an optional variable. You could implement a cell without the expirationField
  • var cvvField: PaddedTextField?: Text field for the CVV value. This text field is also optional.

PaddedTextField is a UITextField subclass that implements a padding around the text rect of the UITextField.

horizontalSeparator and verticalSeparator depend on the default design. You will probably not use them if you create your own design. Also, as expirationField and cvvField are optional you could create a cell that just contains the credit card number like the following (you can find it in the example project):

Creating custom nib file

You might want to follow your own design. To accomplish this you should follow these steps:

  • Create a user interface xib file and edit it with Xcode's Interface Builder. You should add a simple UITableViewCell and say that its class is a CreditCardCell. Make sure that the module of that class appears as CreditCardRow.

  • Add an UITextField for the credit card's number. If you also want then you can add text fields for the expiration date and CVV/CVC value of the credit card.

  • Connect these UITextField's to the corresponding outlets in the CreditCardCell.swift file

  • Customise how the internal navigation works for these text fields (if you have changed the order of the fields.)

  • Specify that you want to use the newly created nib file. You can do this in two ways:

    • Using RowDefaults: use this if you want to use only this custom CreditCardRow in your app.
    CreditCardRow.defaultRowInitializer = {
              $0.cellProvider = CellProvider<CreditCardCell>(nibName: "CustomCell", bundle: nil)
    • Or create a custom row subclassing _CreditCardRow:
    final class MyCreditCardRow: _CreditCardRow, RowType {
        required init(tag: String?) {
            super.init(tag: tag)
            cellProvider = CellProvider<CreditCardCell>(nibName: "CustomCell", bundle: nil)

Extending or overriding CreditCardCell functionality

Sometimes it is not enough to create a custom nib file; you also need to subclass and change some functionality. An example of this is if you change the order in which the text fields appear to the user or you remove the expirationField or the cvvField and you want to change the row navigation. In that case you should start by creating a class that subclasses CreditCardCell and that overrides inputAccessoryView:

class MyCreditCardCell: CreditCardCell {
    override var inputAccessoryView: UIView? {
        // customize the accessoryView. Have a look at its superclass's implementation
        return super.inputAccessoryView

You should be able to change any behaviour by overriding some method or variable.

To use this MyCreditCardCell, you will have to specify in your nib file that you are using this class and you must change the cellProvider of CreditCardRow to use your custom nib file (as you should have already done if you read the previous section).


What is on the roadmap?

What could be added to CreditCardRow:

  • Implement some Eureka Validation
    • Add SwiftLuhn validation
