Usage

Below is a quick run through of the objects used in this library but as always the best place to get an understanding of the current implementation of the SZMentions library is in the example code.

SZMentionsListener

This class manages the mention interaction.

Setup

Use one of the many initializers to setup your mentions listener. Parameters explained below:

textView : required The text view we are applying the mentions listener to. Note: it's delegate must be the mentions manager.

mentionsManager : required The class that will be handling the mention interaction.

delegate : optional If you would like to receive UITextView delegate methods set this and it will be passed through after processing view the mentions listener.

defaultTextAttributes : Attributes (see: SZAttribute) to apply to the textview for all text that is not a mention.

mentionTextAttributes : Attributes (see: SZAttribute) to apply to the textview for all mentions

spaceAfterMention : optional Whether or not you would like a space to be added to the end of your mentions. Default is NO

trigger : The string used to start a mention. Default is @

cooldownInterval : optional The amount of time to wait between calling showMentionsList. Default is 0.5

Properties

mentions : readonly Array of all mentions currently applied to the text view.

Methods

- (void)addMention:(NSObject<SZCreateMentionProtocol> *)mention; : Call this method while adding a mention to apply the mention to the current text.

SZCreateMentionProtocol

This required properties for a mention being sent to the mentions listener

SZMentionsManagerProtocol

The require methods for handling mention interaction.

- (void)showMentionsListWithString:(NSString *)mentionString; lets the delegate know to show a mentions list as well as provides the current string typed into the textview, allowing for filtering of the mentions list.

- (void)hideMentionsList; lets the delegate know we are no longer typing in a mention.

SZMention

This class is returned via the mentions method, it includes the range of the mention as well as object containing the object sent to the mentions listener via the addMention:(id)mention method.

SZAttribute

This class is used to pass attributes to apply mentions text as well as regular text.

Example:

SZAttribute *attribute = [[SZAttribute alloc] initWithAttributeName:NSForegroundColorAttributeName
attributeValue:[UIColor redColor]];

Unit Tests

SZMentions includes unit tests which can be run on the SZMentions framework
