AGWindowView

Add as many UIView's to UIWindow as you want. Specify the orientation or just follow the status bar. Status bar height is taken into account and you don't have to worry about a thing.

We're using it in Agens for custom alerts, but it can be used for anything. Should not be used as the first view on window.

The AGWindowView is filling the entire screen while your subviews may fill parts of the AGWindowView.

iOS 5 ~ iOS 8 and SDK's

AGWindowView is compatible with modern combinations of build SDK's and iOS system versions (iOS 5 ~ iOS 8). Make sure you use the latest tag/version.

Usage

It can be used in a number of different situations.

  • display something fullscreen
  • your app is in portrait and you want to play video in fullscreen landscape
  • show custom modals in specific orientations
  • display custom alerts on top of UI
  • should not be used as the first view on window.

Code examples

Support the current orientation the status bar might have

AGWindowView *windowView = [[AGWindowView alloc] initAndAddToKeyWindow];
windowView.supportedInterfaceOrientations = AGInterfaceOrientationMaskAll;
[windowView addSubview:view];

Slide up say a video player in landscape even though your app is in portrait

AGWindowView *windowView = [[AGWindowView alloc] initAndAddToKeyWindow];
windowView.supportedInterfaceOrientations = AGInterfaceOrientationMaskLandscapeLeft;
[windowView addSubviewAndFillBounds:player.view withSlideUpAnimationOnDone:nil];
[[UIApplication sharedApplication] setStatusBarHidden:YES withAnimation:UIStatusBarAnimationSlide];

Note: this won't actually rotate the statusbar, just the AGWindow.

Debug - Notes

Please note that we are using AGInterfaceOrientationMask and not UIInterfaceOrientation for the property supportedInterfaceOrientations.

I highly encourage either to set supportedInterfaceOrientations = AGInterfaceOrientationMaskAll or only use one of the orientations e.g. supportedInterfaceOrientations = AGInterfaceOrientationMaskPortrait. Mixing will be supported, but currently undergoes unexpected results.

Cocoa pods

It is added to the public CocoaPods spec repository under the name AGWindowView.
