Main Classes

let designHelper = DesignHelper.shared
let networkHelper = NetworkHelper.shared

Custom Switch as SahibSwitch which inherits UIView

Available Alignment Options

You can use any combination of horizontal and vertical alignment to achieve your desired layout.

Horizontal Alignment:

  • horizontalAlignment = .left

Example layout for horizontalAlignment = .left

  • horizontalAlignment = .right

Example layout for horizontalAlignment = .right

  • horizontalAlignment = .justified

Example layout for horizontalAlignment = .justified

Vertical Alignment:

  • verticalAlignment = .top

Example layout for verticalAlignment = .top

  • verticalAlignment = .center

Example layout for verticalAlignment = .center

  • verticalAlignment = .bottom

Example layout for verticalAlignment = .bottom


Setup in Interface Builder

  1. You have a collection view in Interface Builder and setup its data source appropriately. Run the app and make sure everything works as expected (except the cell alignment).

  2. In the Document Outline, select the collection view layout object.

  3. In the Identity Inspector, set the layout object's custom class to AlignedCollectionViewFlowLayout.

  4. Add and customize the following code to your view controller's viewDidLoad() method:

    let alignedFlowLayout = collectionView?.collectionViewLayout as? AlignedCollectionViewFlowLayout
    alignedFlowLayout?.horizontalAlignment = .left
    alignedFlowLayout?.verticalAlignment = .top

    If you omit any of the last two lines the default alignment will be used (horizontally justified, vertically centered).

    💡 Pro Tip: Instead of type-casting the layout as shown above you can also drag an outlet from the collection view layout object to your view controller.

Setup in code

  1. Create a new AlignedCollectionViewFlowLayout object and specify the alignment you want:

    let alignedFlowLayout = AlignedCollectionViewFlowLayout(horizontalAlignment: .left, verticalAlignment: .top)
  2. Either create a new collection view object and and initialize it with alignedFlowLayout:

    let collectionView = UICollectionView(frame: bounds, collectionViewLayout: alignedFlowLayout)

    or assign alignedFlowLayout to the collectionViewLayout property of an existing collection view:

    yourExistingCollectionView.collectionViewLayout = alignedFlowLayout
  3. Implement your collection view's data source.

  4. Run the app.

Additional configuration

For the left and right alignment AlignedCollectionViewFlowLayout distributes the cells horizontally with a constant spacing which is the same for all rows. You can control the spacing with the minimumInteritemSpacing property.

alignedFlowLayout.minimumInteritemSpacing = 10

Despite its name (which originates from its superclass UICollectionViewFlowLayout) this property doesn't describe a minimum spacing but the exact spacing between the cells.

The vertical spacing between the lines works exactly as in UICollectionViewFlowLayout:

alignedFlowLayout.minimumLineSpacing = 10
