ITSidebar

ITSidebar is outdated and thus shouldn't be used in new projects anymore. It heavily depends on NSMatrix and NSCell which are both soon to be deprecated. Just use an NSTableView or JNWCollectionView.

I'm planning on making a v2.0 of ITSidebar but that might take a while.


ITSidebar is a very lightweight control for Mac OS X. You can create sidebars similar to the one of Sparrow.

Why would I want to use this?

ITSidebar is:

  • Highly customizable
  • Lightning-fast
  • Completly free to use

Usage

Copy files

Copy the following files:

  • ITSidebar.h
  • ITSidebar.m
  • ITSidebarItemCell.h
  • ITSidebarItemCell.m
  • ITLeakWarningHelper.h

Make sure to copy them to the project, and to add them to the target. Please use your own images for the button cells.

Use in a project

Make sure to check out the sample project. First, drag a NSScrollView onto your window. Then, select the document view, and set its custom class to ITSidebar.

Now you can connect an outlet to it, and use the following methods:

// Add/Remove Cells
- (ITSidebarItemCell *)addItemWithImage:(NSImage *)image target:(id)target action:(SEL)action;
- (ITSidebarItemCell *)addItemWithImage:(NSImage *)image alternateImage:(NSImage *)alternateImage target:(id)target action:(SEL)action;

- (ITSidebarItemCell *)addItemWithImage:(NSImage *)image;
- (ITSidebarItemCell *)addItemWithImage:(NSImage *)image alternateImage:(NSImage *)alternateImage;

- (void)removeRow:(NSInteger)row;

// Select Cells
- (void)setSelectedIndex:(int)selectedIndex;
- (void)deselectAllItems;

// Customisation
- (void)setCellSize:(NSSize)cellSize;
- (void)setBackgroundColor:(NSColor *)backgroundColor;
- (void)setScrollerKnobStyle:(NSScrollerKnobStyle)knobStyle;

- (ITSidebarItemCell *)selectedItem;
- (int)selectedIndex;

+ (Class)sidebarItemCellClass;

For subclassing and customisation, check out the example.
