MPNotificationView

An in-app notification view that mimics the iOS 6 notification views which appear above the status bar. Compatible with iOS 4.3 and above.

Features:

  • Animation and layout similar to iOS 6 notifications
  • Provides two UILabels and an UIImageView
  • Simple API
  • Enqueues multiple notifications and shows them with a default duration of 2 seconds.

Example notification

Usage:

Simply use the following call to show a message and related detail text:

[MPNotificationView notifyWithText:@"Grumpy wizards" andDetail:@"make a toxic brew for the jovial queen"];`

Or use the following call to add a thumbnail image and customize duration:

[MPNotificationView notifyWithText:@"Moped Dog:"
                            detail:@"I have no idea what I'm doing..."
                             image:[UIImage imageNamed:@"mopedDog.jpeg"]
                       andDuration:5.0];

Or if you need to load the image async using AFNetworking:

MPNotificationView* notification = 
[MPNotificationView notifyWithText:@"Moped Dog:"
                            detail:@"I have no idea what I'm doing..."
                             image:nil
                       andDuration:5.0];

//From UIImage+AFNetworking.h:                           
[notification.imageView setImageWithURL:[NSURL URLWithString:@"https://dl.dropbox.com/u/361895/mopeddog.png"]];

Touch handling can be implemented using blocks:

[MPNotificationView notifyWithText:@"Grumpy wizards"
                            detail:@"make a toxic brew for the jovial queen"
                     andTouchBlock:^(MPNotificationView *notificationView) {
                         NSLog( @"Received touch for notification with text: %@", notificationView.textLabel.text );
}];

Also by specifying a delegate which implements the MPNotificationViewDelegate and finally by handling the kMPNotificationViewTapReceivedNotification notification.
