StatusAlert is fully compatible with Objective-C. To import it to your project just add the following line:
Demo application is included in the
StatusAlert workspace. To run it clone the repo.
// Importing framework import StatusAlert // Creating StatusAlert instance let statusAlert = StatusAlert.instantiate( withImage: UIImage(named: "Some image name"), title: "StatusAlert title", message: "Message to show beyond title", canBePickedOrDismissed: isUserInteractionAllowed) // Presenting created instance statusAlert.showInKeyWindow()
All the alert components (
message) are optional, but at least one should be present. Otherwise
show()method will be ignored.
The alert must be presented only from the main thread, otherwise application will crash with an appropriate error.
Wiki with more content and examples available
Present alert with any set of image, title and message
Display alert anywhere you want, either on the top, in the center or at the bottom of the view, and with any offset.
You can customize a single alert's appearance via the
appearance property or for all alerts at once with
var titleFont: UIFont var messageFont: UIFont var tintColor: UIColor var backgroundColor: UIColor
Alert will hide itself after 2 seconds timeout.
You can also pass
canBePickedOrDismissed: true into
instantiate method. After that you will also be able to dismiss the alert manually by tap it and long tap the alert to delay dismissal.
