A clone of the UIImagePickerController using the Assets Library Framework allowing for multiple asset selection.
The image picker is created and displayed in a very similar manner to the
UIImagePickerController. The sample application shows its use. To display the controller you instantiate it and display it modally like so.
// Create the image picker ELCImagePickerController *elcPicker = [[ELCImagePickerController alloc] initImagePicker]; elcPicker.maximumImagesCount = 4; //Set the maximum number of images to select, defaults to 4 elcPicker.returnsOriginalImage = NO; //Only return the fullScreenImage, not the fullResolutionImage elcPicker.returnsImage = YES; //Return UIimage if YES. If NO, only return asset location information elcPicker.onOrder = YES; //For multiple image selection, display and return selected order of images elcPicker.imagePickerDelegate = self; //Present modally [self presentViewController:elcPicker animated:YES completion:nil]; // Release if not using ARC [elcPicker release];
ELCImagePickerController will return the select images back to the
ELCImagePickerControllerDelegate. The delegate contains methods very similar to the
UIImagePickerControllerDelegate. Instead of returning one dictionary representing a single image the controller sends back an array of similarly structured dictionaries. The two delegate methods are:
- (void)elcImagePickerController:(ELCImagePickerController *)picker didFinishPickingMediaWithInfo:(NSArray *)info; - (void)elcImagePickerControllerDidCancel:(ELCImagePickerController *)picker;
The Image Picker allows for some customization, including limiting to just one photo album, limiting to single image selection, and automatically scrolling to the bottom. See the demo viewcontroller for example usage.
