AJNotificationView

Notice component for iOS

  • No images needed, all CoreGraphics code
  • Works on iPhone and iPad (resolution independent)
  • Animated background type
  • Only one notification is shown at a time. When a notification is created, it is added to the queue. If it is the only notification in the queue, then its delay interval is honored. If it is not the only notification in the queue, it is placed at the end of the queue, and then displayed without a delay once it reaches the front of the queue (Thanks to @DazeEnd).

//Blue notification with animated lined background. Hides after 2,5 seg
[AJNotificationView showNoticeInView:[[[UIApplication sharedApplication] delegate] window]
                                type:AJNotificationTypeBlue
                               title:@"Test notification"
                     linedBackground:AJLinedBackgroundTypeAnimated
                           hideAfter:2.5f];
// Orange notification without lined background. Remains visible until the user taps in it, or you call hide method
AJNotificationView *panel = [AJNotificationView showNoticeInView:[[[UIApplication sharedApplication] delegate] window]
                                type:AJNotificationTypeOrange
                               title:@"Test notification"
                     linedBackground:AJLinedBackgroundTypeDisabled
                           hideAfter:0];

                                                 name:@"detail_disclosure_button_pressed"
                                               object:nil];
   [super viewDidLoad];
}

//...
//Function that's called when the NSNotification is fired
- (void)detailDisclosureButtonPressed:(NSNotification*)notification {
    NSLog(@"Detail disclosure button pressed");

//The code for show the AJNotificationView

    [AJNotificationView showNoticeInView:self.view
                                    type:AJNotificationTypeBlue
                                   title:@"Detail disclosure notification"
                         linedBackground:AJLinedBackgroundTypeAnimated
                               hideAfter:2.5f
                                  offset:0.0f
                                   delay:0.0f
                        detailDisclosure:YES
                                response:^{
