DSFPagerControl

 

A simple macOS pager control.

Swift Package Manager

Why?

I was a bit surprised there isn't a built-in control for displaying a pager (the dots) given macOS has a NSPageController control.

So here's a relatively simple packaged drop-in version.

Features

  • Horizontal or vertical alignments
  • Light/Dark mode aware
  • High-constrast support
  • Delegate feedback support
  • Custom color scheme supported
  • Optional keyboard selection support
  • Optional mouse selection support

The control is designed to be driven by :-

  • Direct interaction, for example using to drive the visible page of a theme selector.
  • Purely display, for example displaying the current page being displayed in an NSPageController instance
  • … or a combination of both!

Installation

Using Swift Package Manager, add https://github.com/dagronf/DSFPagerControl to your project.

Properties

Many of these properties are @IBInspectable so you can set them directly within interface builder when Apple fixes IBDesignable support for packaged NSViews (Boooo! - its only been five years - FB8358478).

If you copy the package source files into your project IBDesignables will show as expected.

Name Type Description
orientation Orientation Is the page control vertically or horizontally oriented?
pageCount Int The number of page indicators to display in the control
selectedPage Int The current page selection (Observable)
selectedColor NSColor? The color to draw a selected page (nil to use default colors)
unselectedColor NSColor? The color to draw an unselected page (nil to use default colors)
boundsSize CGSize The size of the page indicator
dotSize CGFloat The size of the dot to be displayed in the center of the page indicator
allowsKeyboardSelection Bool Allow the user to use the keyboard to focus and change the page selection
allowsMouseSelection Bool Allow the user to use the mouse to change the page selection

Observables

These are member variables you can observe for changes

Name Type Description
pageCount Int The number of pages
selectedPage Int The selected page
isFirstPage Bool Is the selection the first page?
isLastPage Bool Is the selection the last page?

Delegate

func pagerControl(_ pager: DSFPagerControl, willMoveToPage page: Int) -> Bool

Called when the user attempts to change the selection of the pager control is asked to change to a new page. You can deny the page change by returning false

Note this is only called when allowsKeyboardFocus

func pagerControl(_ pager: DSFPagerControl, didMoveToPage page: Int)

Called when the pager control has changed to a new page.

User interaction

The control optionally supports keyboard and mouse interactions. When the user interacts with the control you can decide whether to perform the change via the use of a delegate.

Keyboard

When allowsKeyboardSelection is true, the control will accept focus events and reacts to the following keys :-

  • Up/Left: Move to the previous page
  • Down/Right: Move to the next page

When a key is pressed, the delegate is called (willMoveToPage) to ask whether the change is valid. If so, the pager will update its display and call didMoveToPage on the delegate.

Mouse

When allowsMouseSelection is true, the cursor will change to a hand when its over the control.

When the user clicks a page indicator, the delegate is called (willMoveToPage) to ask whether the change is valid. If so, the pager will update its display and call didMoveToPage on the delegate.

Custom color support

By default, DSFPagerControl supplies a standard color palette, adapting automatically to the user's light/dark modes and contrast settings.

If you want to customize your display, the control provides two block callbacks you can supply to return your own custom colors for selected and unselected states.

selectedColorBlock

Provide a block that returns a custom color to be used when drawing the selected page indicator.

unselectedColorBlock

Provide a block that returns a custom color to be used when drawing the unselected page indicator.
