NavigationContentSlider

NavigationContentSlider is a small, lightweight class which allows you to have "tabbed" style content for your views that you can switch between by swiping on the UINavigationBar (see the screenshots section below for a better representation of what I'm trying to say!).

NavigationContentSlider Example

How to Use

NavigationContentSlider uses ARC, and is compatible with all iOS mobile devices (iPhone, iPod, iPad, iPhone 5, iPad Mini) running iOS 5.0+ (it may well work on lower iOS versions, but I haven't tested this). It can be used in both portrait and landscape mode.

Any view controller that uses this class MUST be part of a UINavigationController stack.

  • Import the NavigationContentSlider.h/.m files into your project
  • Create (or update) a UIViewController .h file so that it's derived from the NavigationContentSlider class, for example: @interface RootViewController : NavigationContentSlider
  • Implement the four required dataSource methods (explained below)

DataSource Methods

- (NSInteger)numberOfSectionsInNavigationContentSlider:(NavigationContentSlider *)navigationContentSlider

Return the number of sections you wish to have

- (NSInteger)widthOfSectionTitlesInNavigationContentSlider:(NavigationContentSlider *)navigationContentSlider

Return the width of the title for each section. In the demo example, you'll see that I increase this for iPads (as it looks better)

- (NSString *)navigationContentSlider:(NavigationContentSlider *)navigationContentSlider titleForSectionAtIndex:(NSInteger)index

Return the title for the section index

- (UIView *)navigationContentSlider:(NavigationContentSlider *)navigationContentSlider viewForSectionAtIndex:(NSInteger)index

Return the UIView for the section at the index

Styling

You can style the NavigationContentSlider using the same methods you would to style a UINavigationBar (since iOS5, using [[UINavigationBar appearance] setTitleTextAttributes:...] and [[UINavigationBar appearance] setBackgroundImage:...] etc...)
