Customizable sliding cell behavior. Based on MKSlidingTableViewCell, adds few new options. Now you can add transformable behavior – for drawer and foreground cell (whole, or its part) which are being 3D transformed – giving you nice, clean look, and several options to customize it:

Setup – cells

Create cells, that conforms to given structure:

  1. Container as MKSlidingTableViewCell – this is empty container for foreground and background cells.

  2. Foreground as subclass of MKActionTableViewCell – this is what actually is shown in the cell. To work, you have to set valid auto-layout, and connect outlets. In case of foreground, not connecting outlets will only result in no 3D transform for foreground.

    1. actionContainer: this is main container (optional if no transformable)

    2. transformableContainer: this should be same size as actionContainer, everything inside is being 3D transformed (optional)
  3. Backgorund as subclass of MKActionTableViewCell – this is what gets revealed, when cell is sliding.

    1. actionContainer: this is main container, its size determines, how much cell will slide (required)

    2. transformableContainer: this should be same size as actionContainer, everything inside is being 3D transformed (optional)



When the cells are prepared, (storyboard or XIB) – you create actual sliding cells like below:


- (UITableViewCell *)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath
    MKSlidingTableViewCell *cell = [tableView dequeueReusableCellWithIdentifier:@"container"];
    UITableViewCell *foregroundCell = [tableView dequeueReusableCellWithIdentifier:@"foreground"];
    UITableViewCell *backgroundCell = [tableView dequeueReusableCellWithIdentifier:@"background"];

    cell.foregroundView = foregroundCell;
    cell.drawerView = backgroundCell;
    cell.delegate = self;

    //configure cells

    return cell;


func tableView(tableView: UITableView, cellForRowAtIndexPath indexPath: NSIndexPath) -> UITableViewCell {
    guard let
    containerCell = tableView.dequeueReusableCellWithIdentifier("container") as? MKSlidingTableViewCell,
    foregroundCell = tableView.dequeueReusableCellWithIdentifier("foreground") as? MKActionTableViewCell, // Or its subclass
    drawerCell = tableView.dequeueReusableCellWithIdentifier("background") as? MKActionTableViewCell  // Or its subclass
    else {
        return UITableViewCell()

    containerCell.foregroundView = foregroundCell
    containerCell.drawerView = drawerCell
    containerCell.delegate = self

    return containerCell

Handling Taps on Cell


- (void)didSelectSlidingTableViewCell:(MKSlidingTableViewCell *)cell
    //cell tapped!


func didSelectSlidingTableViewCell(cell: MKSlidingTableViewCell!) {
    print("Did select")



//Add observers
[[NSNotificationCenter defaultCenter] addObserver:self selector:@selector(didRevealDrawerViewForCell:) name:MKDrawerDidOpenNotification object:nil];
[[NSNotificationCenter defaultCenter] addObserver:self selector:@selector(didHideDrawerViewForCell:) name:MKDrawerDidCloseNotification object:nil];

- (void)didRevealDrawerViewForCell:(NSNotification *)notification
    MKSlidingTableViewCell *cell = notification.object;

    //additional code

- (void)didHideDrawerViewForCell:(NSNotification *)notification
    MKSlidingTableViewCell *cell = notification.object;

    //additional code
