DAKeyboardControl is a collection of UIView subclasses that allow the user to drag the UIKeyboard down from a view. DAKeyboardControl is unique because it allows the "drag down" functionality even from a UITableView. As a result, with DAKeyboardControl, you are able to mimic the chat bar functionality of the iMessage app.
Gets along well with other subclasses and categories. No dirty, breakable hacks.
View the included example project for a demonstration.
To use DAKeyboardControl:
1 - Copy over the
DAKeyboardControl folder to your project folder.
2 - Subclass.
Optional - Customize.
Wherever you want to use DAKeyboardControl, import the appropriate header file and subclass as follows:
' #import "DAKeyboardControlView.h" '
' #import "DAKeyboardControlTableView.h" '
' #import "DAKeyboardControlScrollView.h" '
Subclass either via code or Interface Builder.
Each of the DAKeyboardControl classes supports the following optional delegate method:
- (void)keyboardFrameWillChange:(CGRect)newFrame from:(CGRect)oldFrame over:(CGFloat)seconds;
This gives you the opportunity to move views up or down as the keyboard appears/disappears/moves. View the "Offset TableView Example" implementation. A delegate property is included in the UIView class to support.
Untested in App Store
All code is iOS 4.3+ safe and well documented, but has not been put into a production app (yet).
The first time that the keyboard appears, there is a little hiccup due to loading lag (of the UIKeyboard). Will see what can be done.
Automatic Reference Counting (ARC) support
DAKeyboardControl was made with ARC enabled by default.
