YLProgressBar is an UIProgressView replacement with an highly and fully customizable animated progress bar in pure Core Graphics
It has been implemented using the Core Graphics framework without any images. So it can be customize freely and independently the platform.
Here are some examples to show you how the
YLProgressBar can be configured:
// Blue flat progress, with no stripes _progressBar.type = YLProgressBarTypeFlat; _progressBar.progressTintColor = [UIColor blueColor]; _progressBar.hideStripes = YES; // Green rounded/gloss progress, with vertical animated stripes in the left direction _progressBar.type = YLProgressBarTypeRounded; _progressBar.progressTintColor = [UIColor greenColor]; _progressBar.stripesOrientation = YLProgressBarStripesOrientationVertical; _progressBar.stripesDirection = YLProgressBarStripesDirectionLeft; // Rainbow flat progress, with the indicator text displayed over the progress bar NSArray *rainbowColors = @[[UIColor colorWithRed:33/255.0f green:180/255.0f blue:162/255.0f alpha:1.0f], [UIColor colorWithRed:3/255.0f green:137/255.0f blue:166/255.0f alpha:1.0f], [UIColor colorWithRed:91/255.0f green:63/255.0f blue:150/255.0f alpha:1.0f], [UIColor colorWithRed:87/255.0f green:26/255.0f blue:70/255.0f alpha:1.0f], [UIColor colorWithRed:126/255.0f green:26/255.0f blue:36/255.0f alpha:1.0f], [UIColor colorWithRed:149/255.0f green:37/255.0f blue:36/255.0f alpha:1.0f], [UIColor colorWithRed:228/255.0f green:69/255.0f blue:39/255.0f alpha:1.0f], [UIColor colorWithRed:245/255.0f green:166/255.0f blue:35/255.0f alpha:1.0f], [UIColor colorWithRed:165/255.0f green:202/255.0f blue:60/255.0f alpha:1.0f], [UIColor colorWithRed:202/255.0f green:217/255.0f blue:54/255.0f alpha:1.0f], [UIColor colorWithRed:111/255.0f green:188/255.0f blue:84/255.0f alpha:1.0f]]; _progressBar.type = YLProgressBarTypeFlat; _progressBar.hideStripes = YES; _progressBar.indicatorTextDisplayMode = YLProgressBarIndicatorTextDisplayModeProgress; _progressBar.progressTintColors = rainbowColors; // To allow the gradient colors to fit the progress width _progressBar.progressStretch = YES;
You can also use the
UIAppearence protocol to configure all the progress bar at once:
[[YLProgressBar appearance] setType:YLProgressBarTypeFlat]; [[YLProgressBar appearance] setProgressTintColor:[UIColor blueColor]];
The recommended approach to use the YLProgressBar in your project is using the CocoaPods package manager, as it provides flexible dependency management and dead simple installation.
Install CocoaPods if not already available:
$ [sudo] gem install cocoapods $ pod setup
Go to the directory of your Xcode project, and Create and Edit your Podfile and add YLProgressBar:
$ cd /path/to/MyProject $ touch Podfile $ edit Podfile source 'https://github.com/CocoaPods/Specs.git' platform :ios pod 'YLProgressBar', '~> 3.9.0'
Install into your project:
$ pod install
Open your project in Xcode from the .xcworkspace file (not the usual project file)
$ open MyProject.xcworkspace
Download the project and copy the
YLProgressBar folder into your project and then simply
#import "YLProgressBar.h" in the file(s) you would like to use it in.
