UISegmentedControl is great, but it’s not animated, and has limits to how much you can customize it. UISwitch is great too, it is animated, but it’s limited to a yes/no choice, and customization again can be quite tricky. Today we’ll look at a library from George Marmaridis called BetterSegmentedControl that aims to helps us here.
Let’s try it out in a navigation bar:
let c = BetterSegmentedControl(titles: ["Lights On", "Lights Off"]) c.frame = CGRect(x: 35.0, y: 40.0, width: 200.0, height: 30.0) c.cornerRadius = 3.0 c.titleFont = UIFont(name: "Avenir", size: 13.0) c.backgroundColor = .darkGrayColor() c.titleColor = .lightGrayColor() c.selectedTitleColor = .whiteColor() c.bouncesOnChange = false navigationItem.titleView = c
Awesome! More info about BetterSegmentedControl can be found at git.io/bsc
