KeepBackgroundCell

CI Status Version License Platform

Whenever a UITableViewCell is selected or highlighted, it automatically sets the backgroundColors of all its subviews to transparent. This makes sense for many views, such as UILabels to allow the selectedBackgroundView to show through inbetween the individual letters.

However with custom views, there are many cases where the backgroundColor should be maintained on selection of highlighting of the cell.

KeepBackgroundCell provides a way to turn of this transparency "feature" on individual UITableViewCells.

Usage

Swift
import KeepBackgroundCell

let cell = < Initialize UITableViewCell >
cell.keepSubviewBackground = true
Objective-C
#import <KeepBackgroundCell/KeepBackgroundCell.h>

UITableViewCell* cell = < Initialize UITableViewCell >
cell.keepSubviewBackground = YES;

Installation

KeepBackgroundCell is available through CocoaPods. To install it, simply add the following line to your Podfile:

pod "KeepBackgroundCell"
