TMQuiltView

We developed a quilt view for our Shoebox app

Features

  • Interface similar to the UITableView
  • Fully compatible with NSFetchedResultsController
  • Multiple columns
  • Customization of the margins
  • Number of column can depend on orientation
  • Handling of datasource changes (row insertion/removal)

Installation

  • Drag the TMQuiltView subfolder into your project
  • Import "TMQuiltView.h" wherever you need it
  • Subclass TMQuiltViewController.

Usage

Below is the excerpt from the demo view controller which shows how easy it is to setup a TMQuiltView. You can also directly open the TMQuiltViewDemo in XCode and build the project.

@interface TMDemoQuiltViewController ()

@property (nonatomic, retain) NSArray *images;

@end

@implementation TMDemoQuiltViewController

@synthesize images = _images;

- (void)dealloc {
    [_images release], _images = nil;
    [super dealloc];
}

#pragma mark - UIViewController

- (void)viewDidLoad
{
    [super viewDidLoad];

    self.quiltView.backgroundColor = [UIColor blackColor];
}

- (BOOL)shouldAutorotateToInterfaceOrientation:(UIInterfaceOrientation)interfaceOrientation
{
    if ([[UIDevice currentDevice] userInterfaceIdiom] == UIUserInterfaceIdiomPhone) {
        return (interfaceOrientation != UIInterfaceOrientationPortraitUpsideDown);
    } else {
        return YES;
    }
}

#pragma mark - QuiltViewControllerDataSource

- (NSArray *)images {
    if (!_images) {
        NSMutableArray *imageNames = [NSMutableArray array];
        for(int i = 0; i < kNumberOfCells; i++) {
            [imageNames addObject:[NSString stringWithFormat:@"%d.jpeg", i % 10 + 1]];
        }
        _images = [imageNames retain];
    }
    return _images;
}

- (UIImage *)imageAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath {
    return [UIImage imageNamed:[self.images objectAtIndex:indexPath.row]];
}

- (NSInteger)quiltViewNumberOfCells:(TMQuiltView *)TMQuiltView {
    return [self.images count];
}

- (TMQuiltViewCell *)quiltView:(TMQuiltView *)quiltView cellAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath {
    TMPhotoQuiltViewCell *cell = (TMPhotoQuiltViewCell *)[quiltView dequeueReusableCellWithReuseIdentifier:@"PhotoCell"];
    if (!cell) {
        cell = [[[TMPhotoQuiltViewCell alloc] initWithReuseIdentifier:@"PhotoCell"] autorelease];
    }

    cell.photoView.image = [self imageAtIndexPath:indexPath];
    cell.titleLabel.text = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%d", indexPath.row + 1];
    return cell;
}

#pragma mark - TMQuiltViewDelegate

- (NSInteger)quiltViewNumberOfColumns:(TMQuiltView *)quiltView {


    if ([[UIDevice currentDevice] orientation] == UIDeviceOrientationLandscapeLeft 
        || [[UIDevice currentDevice] orientation] == UIDeviceOrientationLandscapeRight) {
        return 3;
    } else {
        return 2;
    }
}

- (CGFloat)quiltView:(TMQuiltView *)quiltView heightForCellAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath {
    return [self imageAtIndexPath:indexPath].size.height / [self quiltViewNumberOfColumns:quiltView];
}

@end

TODOs

  • ARC
  • Handle NSIndexPath sections
  • Interface is still limited compared to UITableView's
  • Better animations
