What is PSCollectionView?

It's a Pinterest style scroll view designed to be used similar to a UITableView.

It supports Portrait and Landscape orientations.

This version is an almost complete rewrite of the layout code to support additional features such as:

  1. Multiple sections
  2. Section headers and footers
  3. Improved performance and reduced memory usage, especially during fast scrolling operations.

Due to the inclusion of multiple section support, this fork is not API compatible with the original PSCollectionView found at https://github.com/ptshih/PSCollectionView. Thanks to Peter Shih (https://github.com/ptshih) for writing the original PSCollectionView which forms the basis of this version.

The rest of this README is the same as the README in the original PSCollectionView repository.

What is PSCollectionViewCell?

It's the equivalent of UITableViewCell

It implements base methods for configuring data and calculating height

Note: You should subclass this!

Want to see this code in a live app?

I use this in my iPhone/iPad app, Lunchbox.

Try it out for free now!

Still confused? Try the Demo app included in this repo: BroBoard

Just open and run in simulator, it works on both iPhone (2 columns) AND iPad (4 columns)

It shows an example of using PSCollectionView and a subclass of PSCollectionViewCell

ARC

This version of PSCollectionView is ARC ready.

How to use:

Here's an example of creating an instance of PSCollectionView

self.collectionView = [[[PSCollectionView alloc] initWithFrame:self.view.bounds] autorelease];
self.collectionView.delegate = self;
self.collectionView.collectionViewDelegate = self;
self.collectionView.collectionViewDataSource = self;
self.collectionView.autoresizingMask = UIViewAutoresizingFlexibleWidth | UIViewAutoresizingFlexibleHeight;

Setting number of columns

// Specify number of columns for both iPhone and iPad
if (isDeviceIPad()) {
    self.collectionView.numColsPortrait = 4;
    self.collectionView.numColsLandscape = 5;
} else {
    self.collectionView.numColsPortrait = 2;
    self.collectionView.numColsLandscape = 3;
}

Add a loading view or label

UIView *loadingLabel = ...
self.collectionView.loadingView = loadingLabel;

Add an empty/error view or label

UIView *emptyView = ...
self.collectionView.emptyView = emptyView;

Add a header view

UIView *headerView = ...
self.collectionView.headerView = headerView;

Add a footer view

UIView *footerView = ...
self.collectionView.footerView = footerView;

Delegate and DataSource

- (PSCollectionViewCell *)collectionView:(PSCollectionView *)collectionView viewAtIndex:(NSInteger)index {
    NSDictionary *item = [self.items objectAtIndex:index];

    // You should probably subclass PSCollectionViewCell
    PSCollectionViewCell *v = (PSCollectionViewCell *)[self.collectionView dequeueReusableView];
    if (!v) {
        v = [[[PSCollectionViewCell alloc] initWithFrame:CGRectZero] autorelease];
    }

    [v fillViewWithObject:item]

    return v;
}

- (CGFloat)heightForViewAtIndex:(NSInteger)index {
    NSDictionary *item = [self.items objectAtIndex:index];

    // You should probably subclass PSCollectionViewCell
    return [PSCollectionViewCell heightForViewWithObject:item inColumnWidth:self.collectionView.colWidth];
}

- (void)collectionView:(PSCollectionView *)collectionView didSelectView:(PSCollectionViewCell *)view atIndex:(NSInteger)index {
    // Do something with the tap
}
