EasyTableView 2.1 - May 1, 2017
The API for
EasyTableView has been extended. Swiping a table view cell in a perpendicular direction to the normal scrolling direction of an
EasyTableView, drags the cell out of the
EasyTableView. If touches end with the cell away from the
EasyTableView it will be deleted. Otherwise it will animate back to it's normal position. See
EasyTableViewController for an example.
EasyTableView 2.0 - January 7, 2016
IMPORTANT NOTE: The API for
EasyTableView has changed of January 6, 2016. So if you have been a consumer of
EasyTableView prior to this date, you may find that this update breaks your existing projects.
This project demonstrates the use of the
EasyTableView class. The demo is intended to be run on an iPad only, but there is no reason why
EasyTableView could not be used on an iPhone.
EasyTableView in your own project, all you need to include are the following files:
This was written before
UICollectionView became available, but developers may still prefer to use
EasyTableView for it’s simplicity.
EasyTableView was created to address two concerns. The first is the ability to have a table view, horizontal or vertical, that only partially fills the screen. Normally one would use
UITableViewController but as per Apple documentation, that requires table views that fill the whole screen.
EasyTableView addresses this problem by acting as the controller for the embedded table view, and exposes a subset of table view functionality with it's own delegate methods.
The second concern addressed by
EasyTableView is horizontal table views. Table views were initially designed to be vertical only.
EasyTableView solves this problem by rotating the table view, and then reverse rotating table view cells. One could also provide horizontally scrolling table views by subclassing
UIScrollView, but I wanted to create one simple, common interface for creating both vertical EasyTableViews and horizontal EasyTableViews.
So now you can create simple partial-screen table views, either vertically or horizontally, all with the same interface.
To understand how to use
EasyTableView, study the code in
EasyTableViewController.m. To create a new
EasyTableView object, look at the methods:
- (void)setupHorizontalView; - (void)setupVerticalView;
Create a vertical scrolling table view with:
- (id)initWithFrame:(CGRect)frame ofHeight:(CGFloat)cellHeight; `
To create a new horizontal scrolling table view use:
- (id)initWithFrame:(CGRect)frame ofWidth:(CGFloat)cellWidth; `
For even simpler setup, look to see how to use
EasyTableView with a storyboard in
There are only two delegate methods that must be implemented as part of the
- (NSInteger)easyTableView:(EasyTableView *)easyTableView numberOfRowsInSection:(NSInteger)section - (UITableViewCell *)easyTableView:(EasyTableView *)easyTableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath
If you plan to setup an EasyTableView with multiple sections, you must implement the following delegate method:
That's all there is to it. It is very easy to use. And yes, that is a picture of my tent!
EasyTableViewwill correctly auto-resize it's overall length. However a horizontal
EasyTableViewwill NOT necessarily correctly auto-resize it's height.
Loading the Flickr catalog will sometimes fail due to JSON parsing errors.
Auto-layout is not supported.
