MotionTab

**NOTE: MotionTab is deprecated and has been merged into the ProMotion project.

Easily create a UITabBar in a RubyMotion app.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'motion-tab'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install motion-tab

Usage

Basic usage (more documentation is forthcoming). In app/app_delegate.rb:

def application(application, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:launchOptions)
  @window = UIWindow.alloc.initWithFrame(UIScreen.mainScreen.bounds)

  tabs = [
    {
      systemIcon: UITabBarSystemItemContacts,
      navigationController: true,
      viewController: ContactsViewController
    }, {
      title: "Custom",
      icon: "custom.png",
      navigationController: false,
      viewController: CustomViewController.alloc.initWithCustomInit(true)
    }, {
      title: "Settings",
      icon: "settings.png",
      navigationController: true,
      viewController: SettingsViewController
    }
  ]

  tabBarController = MotionTab::TabBar.createTabBarControllerFromData(tabs)
  MotionTab::TabBar.select(tabBarController, title: "Settings")
  # MotionTab::TabBar.select(tabBarController, tag: 0) # Selects first tab

  @window.rootViewController = tabBarController
  @window.makeKeyAndVisible
end

Tab Options

systemIcon: You can not customize the title if you use a system icon. You can find all of them here: http://developer.apple.com/library/ios/#documentation/userexperience/conceptual/mobilehig/UIElementGuidelines/UIElementGuidelines.html#pageNavigationLinks_bottom

icon: Uses an image found in /resources.

title: Custom title (only used if also using a custom icon). NOTE: setting self.title in a ViewController will override this value when you switch to that tab.

navigationController: Boolean. If true, wraps viewController in a UINavigationController.

viewController: The UIViewController class you want to load into the tab. You can also pass in an instantiated viewController.
