UPCardsCarousel is a carousel with a cards based UI for iOS.
UPCardsCarousel uses ARC and requires iOS 7.0+.
Works for iPhone.
UPCardsCarousel is available through CocoaPods. To install it, simply add the following line to your Podfile:
Simply copy the folder
UPCardsCarousel to your project and import it in XCode.
Start by importing the header file:
Now, you can create a
UPCardsCarousel object by giving it a frame:
UPCardsCarousel *carousel = [[UPCardsCarousel alloc] initWithFrame:aFrame];
Then you need to assign to it:
delegateobject that conforms to the
dataSourceobject that conforms to the
The data source informs the carousel about the total number of cards and the content of each card through two self-explanatory methods:
- (NSUInteger)numberOfCardsInCarousel:(UPCardsCarousel *)carousel(required)
- (UIView *)carousel:(UPCardsCarousel *)carousel viewForCardAtIndex:(NSUInteger)index(required)
The labels in the banner are given with an optional method. If the data source doesn't implement this method, the label banner will not be displayed.
- (NSString *)carousel:(UPCardsCarousel *)carousel labelForCardAtIndex:(NSUInteger)index(optional)
The delegate is optional and will be notified when some events occur:
- (void)carousel:(UPCardsCarousel *)carousel didTouchCardAtIndex:(NSUInteger)index
- (void)carousel:(UPCardsCarousel *)carousel willDisplayCardAtIndex:(NSUInteger)index
- (void)carousel:(UPCardsCarousel *)carousel willHideCardAtIndex:(NSUInteger)index
- (void)carousel:(UPCardsCarousel *)carousel didDisplayCardAtIndex:(NSUInteger)index
- (void)carousel:(UPCardsCarousel *)carousel didHideCardAtIndex:(NSUInteger)index
|reloadData||Reloads the carousel data and recreates the visible cards and moves to the top of the cards deck|
|reloadDataWithCurrentIndex:(NSUInteger)index||Reloads the carousel data and recreates the visible cards and moves to the specified index in the cards deck|
|reloadNumberOfCards||Reloads only the number of cards in the carousel and doesn't change the visible cards|
|reloadCardAtIndex:(NSUInteger)index||Recreates the card at the specified index|
|cardAtIndex:(NSUInteger)index||Return the card view at the specified index|
Usually, the carousel will not display all the cards supplied by the data source at once. It will handle a infinite scrolling process by destroying and creating cards at both ends. The number of visible cards is given and can be customized through the following property:
maxVisibleCardsCount(default is 6)
You can customize the duration of the card movement between the hidden deck and the visible deck, with this property:
movingAnimationDuration(defaut is 0.4 seconds)
By default, the carousel will return to the top of the deck when making a double-tap on the first hidden card.
You can disable this behaviour by setting the
doubleTapToTop property to
You can customize the text font and color of the banner through these two methods:
- (void)setLabelFont:(UIFont *)font(default is system font)
- (void)setLabelTextColor:(UIColor*)color(default is
You can choose between two locations for the banner through the
UPCardsCarouselLabelBannerLocation_bottom- the banner will be located below the cards deck (default)
UPCardsCarouselLabelBannerLocation_top- the banner will be located above the cards deck
Finally, you also have access to the banner view object through the
labelBanner property so you can customize it as you want.
