A simple library to create sliding menus that can be used in storyboards and support static cells. Sliding menus are used in a number of popular applications like Path 2.0, GMail, TechCrunch, Glassboard and many others.
The repository is an Xcode 4 project that contains three examples of the usage of the library and the library itself.
You can use SASlide menu with both static cells and dynamic cell prototypes. In the project you will find two different target that use both type of cells to create a slide menu. There is also an iPad app example
To use it in your project follow these steps:
- Add the SASlideMenu subdir and it's contents to your project
Add a new class that inherits from SASlideMenuViewController and include/implement SASlideMenuDataSource and SASlideMenuDelegate.
- SASlideMenuDataSource is where you will code your customization while SASlideMenuDelegate is where you will add your code to implement the behavior of your app related to the SASlideMenu events.
Add a new SASlideMenuRootViewController in your storyboard
- Add a view to SASlideMenuRootViewController and connect it to the menuView outlet. This view will contain the UITableView with the menu items, you can make it full screen or reduce the size to avoid interference with the status bar or other elements.
- Add a UITableViewController and make it of the SASlideMenuViewController subclass you already implemented and customize it in accordance with your needs.
- Connect the SASlideMenuRootViewController with your subclass with a custom segue of type SASlideMenuLeftMenuSegue, set the segue identifier to leftMenu.
- To add Content ViewController you have to to do the following:
- Create your content view controller and embed it in a UINavigationController
- Connect it to the SASlideMenuViewController via a SASlideMenuContentSegue. If you are using static cells and you simply connect from the corresponding cell it is not possible to cache the content view controller and the segueIdForIndexPath must not be implemented. If you are using dynamic cell prototype or you are using static cells and you want to cache the content view controller, assign an identifier that will be returned in the sugueIdForIndexPath: method linked to the desired indexPath.
- To add a contextual right menu to that content, connect a new UINavigationController containing a UITableViewController to the UINavigationController using a SASlideMenuRightMenuSegue and set the segue identifier to rightMenu. Your SASlideMenuDataSource then have to return YES hasRightMenuForIndexPath:(NSIndexPath*)indexPath.
Test it and you are done!
It needs iOS 7.
