DSFDropFilesView

A simple view class for dropping files onto. Supporting Swift, SwiftUI and Objective-C.

Why

I've need something like this many times. So here's a module to make my future life easier maybe.

Installation

Swift Package Manager

Add https://github.com/dagronf/DSFDropFilesView to your project.

Usage

Via Interface Builder

Add a new NSView instance using Interface Builder, then change the class type to DSFDropFilesView

Programatically

let dropView = DSFDropFilesView(frame: .zero)

SwiftUI

See below.

Objective-C

Add https://github.com/dagronf/DSFDropFilesView to your project.

Note that if you need to use DSFDropFilesView in Objective-C projects supporting macOS earlier than 10.14, you will also need to make sure to set Always Embed Swift Standard Libraries to Yes in the project settings. Before macOS 10.14 the Swift standard libraries are not distributed as part of the macOS installation and you'll need to provide your own in your application.

Delegation

To receive callbacks from the control, set the dropDelegate to your view controller.

@objc optional func dropFilesViewWantsSelectFiles(_ sender: DSFDropFilesView)

An optional method that gets called if the user clicks the 'Select files...' button on the control.

func dropFilesView(_ sender: DSFDropFilesView, validateFiles: [URL]) -> NSDragOperation

Called when the drag enters the view. Return the drag operation (or an empty array) to indicate how the drag is to proceed. Use this function to filter out if the 'wrong' types of files are dropped. (for example, if you only want to receive PDFs).

func dropFilesView(_ sender: DSFDropFilesView, didDropFiles files: [URL]) -> Bool

Called with the files when the user actually drops the files.

Customizations

Properties

These properties can all be configured via Interface Builder or programatically.

Allowed drop counts

  • allowsMultipleDrop : Allow multiple files/folders to dropped

Select files button (optional)

  • selectFilesButtonLabel : Embed a clickable button for accessibility with the specified label. If empty, doesn't display the button (default)
  • selectFilesButtonIsLink : If the select files button is display, show the button as a hyperlink (blue underlined text) instead of a button.

Icon

  • showIcon : Should we display an icon
  • icon : The icon to display. A default icon is supplied

Label

  • label : The text of the label. If empty, the label is hidden.
  • lineWidth : The line width for the dotted border
  • cornerWidth : The radius for the corners

SwiftUI

SwiftUI

There is a basic SwiftUI View that embeds the DSFDropFilesView control.

DSFDropFilesView.SwiftUI(
   isEnabled: true,
   allowsMultipleDrop: true,
   iconLabel: "Drop files here",
   selectFilesLabel: "Select Files…",
   selectFilesButtonIsLink: true,
   validateFiles: { urls in
      // Check the urls, and return the appropriate drop mode
      return .copy
   },
   dropFiles: { urls in
      Swift.print("\(urls)")
      return true
   },
   selectFiles: {
      Swift.print("User clicked select files")
   }
)

History and changes

1.1.0

SwiftUI

Added a SwiftUI Wrapper

Select files button

  • Added selectFilesButtonLabel to allow the user to specify the 'select files' text. Removes the need for the package to provide its own localizations -- the user can provide them if needed.
  • Removed the selectFiles property, as it can now be inferred from the selectFilesButtonLabel content.
  • Added selectFilesButtonIsLink to display the 'select files' button in a hyperlink style (blue underlined) or a standard button.

General

  • Renamed multipleSelect to allowsMultipleDrop
  • Renamed cornerWidth to cornerRadius
  • Renamed animated to isAnimated
  • Removed localizations file (no longer needed)

1.0.0

  • Initial release
