A custom UINavigationController that enables the scrolling of the navigation bar alongside the scrolling of an observed content view

Versioning notes

Version 2.x is written as a subclass of UINavigationController, in Swift.
Version 2.0.0 introduce Swift 2.0 syntax. Version 3.0.0 introduce Swift 3.0 syntax. If you are looking for the category implementation in Objective-C, make sure to checkout version 1.x and prior, although the 2.x is recomended.

Usage

Make sure to use a subclass of ScrollingNavigationController for your UINavigationController. Either set the class of your UINavigationController in your storyboard, or create programmatically a ScrollingNavigationController instance in your code.

Use followScrollView(_: delay:) to start following the scrolling of a scrollable view (e.g.: a UIScrollView or UITableView).

Swift

override func viewWillAppear(animated: Bool) {
    super.viewWillAppear(animated)

    if let navigationController = navigationController as? ScrollingNavigationController {
        navigationController.followScrollView(tableView, delay: 50.0)
    }
}

Objective-C

- (void)viewWillAppear:(BOOL)animated {
    [super viewWillAppear:animated];

    [(ScrollingNavigationController *)self.navigationController followScrollView:self.tableView delay:50.0f];
}

Use stopFollowingScrollview() to stop the behaviour. Remember to call this function on disappear:

override func viewDidDisappear(animated: Bool) {
    super.viewDidDisappear(animated)

    if let navigationController = navigationController as? ScrollingNavigationController {
        navigationController.stopFollowingScrollView()
    }
}

ScrollingNavigationViewController

To DRY things up you can let your view controller subclass ScrollingNavigationViewController, which provides the base setup implementation. You will just need to call followScrollView(_: delay:):

override func viewWillAppear(animated: Bool) {
    super.viewWillAppear(animated)

    if let navigationController = navigationController as? ScrollingNavigationController {
        navigationController.followScrollView(tableView, delay: 50.0)
    }
}

Followers

To move another view, like a toolbar, alongside the navigation bar you can provide the view or multiple views as the followers parameter:

if let navigationController = navigationController as? ScrollingNavigationController {
    navigationController.followScrollView(tableView, delay: 50.0, followers: [toolbar])
}

ScrollingNavigationControllerDelegate

You can set a delegate to receive a call when the state of the navigation bar changes:

if let navigationController = navigationController as? ScrollingNavigationController {
    navigationController.scrollingNavbarDelegate = self
}

Delegate function:

func scrollingNavigationController(_ controller: ScrollingNavigationController, didChangeState state: NavigationBarState) {
    switch state {
    case .collapsed:
        print("navbar collapsed")
    case .expanded:
        print("navbar expanded")
    case .scrolling:
        print("navbar is moving")
    }
}

Handling navigation

If the view controller with the scroll view pushes new controllers, you should call showNavbar(animated:) in your viewWillDisappear(animated:):

override func viewWillDisappear(animated: Bool) {
  super.viewWillDisappear(animated)
    if let navigationController = navigationController as? ScrollingNavigationController {
      navigationController.showNavbar(animated: true)
    }
}

Scrolling to top

When the user taps the status bar, by default a scrollable view scrolls to the top of its content. If you want to also show the navigation bar, make sure to include this in your controller:

override func scrollViewShouldScrollToTop(scrollView: UIScrollView) -> Bool {
    if let navigationController = navigationController as? ScrollingNavigationController {
        navigationController.showNavbar(animated: true)
    }
    return true
}

Scroll speed

You can control the speed of the scrolling using the scrollSpeedFactor optional parameter:

controller.followScrollView(view, delay: 0, scrollSpeedFactor: 2)
