An easy to use FAQ view for iOS written in Swift.

  • This view is a subclass of UIView.


Setup with CocoaPods

If you are using CocoaPods add this text to your Podfile and run pod install.

target 'Your target name'
pod 'FAQView', '~> 0.5.0'

Or Add source

Simply add FAQView.swift file to you project.


Creating a view from the code

let items = [FAQItem(question: "What is reddit?", answer: "reddit is a source for what's new and popular on the web."),
            FAQItem(question: "How is a submission's score determined?", answer: "A submission's score is simply the number of upvotes minus the number of downvotes.")]

let faqView = FAQView(frame: view.frame, items: items)

Attributed text answers

You may use attributed text instead of plain text. Set the attributedAnswer property of items to an NSAttributedString.


// Change title
faqView.titleLabelText = "Top Queries"

// Question text color  
faqView.questionTextColor =

// Answer text color
faqView.answerTextColor =

// Question text font
faqView.questionTextFont = UIFont(name: "HelveticaNeue-Light", size: 15)

// View background color
faqView.viewBackgroundColor = UIColor.white

// Set up data detectors for automatic detection of links, phone numbers, etc., contained within the answer text.
faqView.dataDetectorTypes = [.phoneNumber, .calendarEvent, .link]

// Set color for links and detected data
faqView.tintColor =
