AHDownloadButton is a customizable download button similar to the download button in the latest version of Apple’s App Store app (since iOS 11).
It features download progress animation as well as animated transitions between download states: start download, pending, downloading and downloaded. You can find more details about the implementation on my blog.

AHDownloadButton

Requirements

  • iOS 8.0+
  • Xcode 9.0+
  • Swift 4.0+

Usage

Code

To use AHDownloadButton in code, you simply create a new instance and add it as a subview to your desired view:

  let downloadButton = AHDownloadButton()
  downloadButton.frame = CGRect(origin: origin, size: size)
  view.addSubview(downloadButton)

The button can have 4 different states:

  • startDownload – initial state before downloading
  • pending – state for preparing for download
  • downloading – state when the user is downloading
  • downloaded – state when the user finished downloading

The state of the button can be changed through its state property.

Delegate

You can use the AHDownloadButtonDelegate to monitor taps on the button and update button’s state if needed. To update the current download progress, use the progress property. Here is an example how it could be implemented:

extension DownloadViewController: AHDownloadButtonDelegate {

    func didTapDownloadButton(withCurrentState state: AHDownloadButton.State) {
        switch state {
        case .startDownload:

            // set the download progress to 0
            downloadButton.progress = 0

            // change state to pending and wait for download to start
            downloadButton.state = .pending

            // initiate download and update state to .downloading
            startDownloadingFile()

        case .pending:

            // button tapped while in pending state
            break

        case .downloading:

            // button tapped while in downloading state - stop downloading
            downloadButton.progress = 0
            downloadButton.state = .startDownload

        case .downloaded:

            // file is downloaded and can be opened
            openDownloadedFile()

        }
    }
}

Customisation

AHDownloadButton can be customized. These are the properties that can be used for customizing the button:

  1. Customization properties when button is in startDownload state:

    • startDownloadButtonTitle – button’s title
    • startDownloadButtonTitleFont – button’s title font
    • startDownloadButtonTitleSidePadding – padding for left and right side of button’s title
    • startDownloadButtonHighlightedBackgroundColor – background color for the button when it’s in highlighted state (when the user presses the button)
    • startDownloadButtonNonhighlightedBackgroundColor – background color for the button when it’s in nonhighlighted state (when the button is not pressed)
    • startDownloadButtonHighlightedTitleColor – title color for the button when it’s in highlighted state (when the user presses the button)
    • startDownloadButtonNonhighlightedTitleColor – title color for the button when it’s in nonhighlighted state (when the button is not pressed)
  2. Customization properties when button is in pending state:

    • pendingCircleColor – color of the pending circle
    • pendingCircleLineWidth – width of the pending circle
  3. Customization properties when button is in downloading state:

    • downloadingButtonHighlightedTrackCircleColor – color for the track circle when it’s in highlighted state (when the user presses the button)
    • downloadingButtonNonhighlightedTrackCircleColor – color for the track circle when it’s in nonhighlighted state (when the button is not pressed)
    • downloadingButtonHighlightedProgressCircleColor – color for the progress circle when it’s in highlighted state (when the user presses the button)
    • downloadingButtonNonhighlightedProgressCircleColor – color for the progress circle when it’s in nonhighlighted state (when the button is not pressed)
    • downloadingButtonHighlightedStopViewColor – color for the stop view in the middle of the progress circle when it’s in highlighted state (when the user presses the button)
    • downloadingButtonNonhighlightedStopViewColor – color for the stop view in the middle of the progress circle when it’s in nonhighlighted state (when the button is not pressed)
  4. Customization properties when button is in downloaded state:

    • downloadedButtonTitle – button’s title
    • downloadedButtonTitleFont – button’s title font
    • downloadedButtonTitleSidePadding – padding for left and right side of button’s title
    • downloadedButtonHighlightedBackgroundColor – background color for the button when it’s in highlighted state (when the user presses the button)
    • downloadedButtonNonhighlightedBackgroundColor – background color for the button when it’s in nonhighlighted state (when the button is not pressed)
    • downloadedButtonHighlightedTitleColor – title color for the button when it’s in highlighted state (when the user presses the button)
    • downloadedButtonNonhighlightedTitleColor – title color for the button when it’s in nonhighlighted state (when the button is not pressed)

Special note

AHDownloadButton in startDownload and downloaded states calculates its width based on button title. Use the startDownloadButtonTitleSidePadding and downloadedButtonTitleSidePadding properties to customise the width when the button is in the aforementioned states.

Example

To run the example project, clone the repo, and run pod install from the Example directory first.

Installation
