FDStatusBarNotifier is a UIView subclass that lets you display notifications using the space in which the status bar resides.
To use it just drag and drop
FDStatusBarNotifierView.m in your project, import the
.h file in your view controller implementation and use the code shown in the example above.
You can use CocoaPods to manage your dependencies and install FDStatusBarNotifierView.
Follow the instructions on the CocoaPods site to install the gem and add
pod 'FDStatusBarNotifierView', :git => 'https://github.com/frankdilo/FDStatusBarNotifierView.git' to your Podfile.
It’s as easy to use as
UIAlertView, here is an example:
// from a view controller FDStatusBarNotifierView *notifierView = [[FDStatusBarNotifierView alloc] initWithMessage:@"Hi"]; notifierView.timeOnScreen = 3.0; [notifierView showInWindow:self.view.window];
When you call
showInWindow: the status bar disappear and the notifier view takes its place with a smooth animation.
In some circumstances (e.g., informing the user of network activities), you may want to manually hide the component.
To do so just set the
manuallyHide property to
YES. Then hide calling the
notifierView.manuallyHide = YES; // do some stuff [notifierView hide];
- If you set the
YESwhen the user touch the message it will be hidden.
- If the message you want to display doesn’t fit in the status bar it will be animated and scroll horizontally to display the full text.
Optional delegate methods
I've also created some handy self-explanatory delegate methods, if you need them.
- (void)willPresentNotifierView:(FDStatusBarNotifierView *)notifierView; // before animation and showing view - (void)didPresentNotifierView:(FDStatusBarNotifierView *)notifierView; // after animation - (void)willHideNotifierView:(FDStatusBarNotifierView *)notifierView; // before hiding animation - (void)didHideNotifierView:(FDStatusBarNotifierView *)notifierView; // after animation - (void)notifierViewTapped:(FDStatusBarNotifierView *)notifierView; // user tap the status bar message

- ZachOrr: iPad support, hide on tap, better handling of device’s screen sizes.
- dbsGen: if the message to display doesn’t fit in the status bar, it will scroll horizontally.
- Luca Bernardi: CocoaPods support, manual hiding.
- Add support for multiple orientations (currently only portrait is supported).
- Properly manage the animation queue, to avoid unexpected behavior when
showInWindow:is called multiple times.
