Integration Guide

Initilization and Register

To integrate BAPeekPop, in your viewcontroller, you just init BAPeekPop instance and call its register

BAPeekPop *baPeekPop = [[BAPeekPop alloc] initWithTarget:self];
[baPeekPop registerForPreviewingWithDelegate:self sourceView:self.view];

The delegate is the same as id<UIViewControllerPreviewingDelegate>

Delegate Handler

BAPeekPop has no extra methods in delegate, you only need to implement

NS_CLASS_AVAILABLE_IOS(9_0) @protocol UIViewControllerPreviewingDelegate <NSObject>

The reference example

How to add Action and Group Buttons

It’s similar as original implementaion, you need to offer
@property(nonatomic, readonly) NSArray<id<UIPreviewActionItem>> *previewActionItems;
in the previewing-viewcontroller

And in this array, you need to add objects of BAPreviewAction or BAPreviewActionGroup

BAPeekPop has offer their factory methods as following

NS_CLASS_AVAILABLE_IOS(9_0) @interface BAPreviewAction : UIPreviewAction

@property(nonatomic, assign, readonly) UIPreviewActionStyle style;

+ (instancetype)actionWithTitle:(NSString *)title style:(UIPreviewActionStyle)style handler:(void (^)(UIPreviewAction *action, UIViewController *previewViewController))handler;


NS_CLASS_AVAILABLE_IOS(9_0) @interface BAPreviewActionGroup : UIPreviewActionGroup

+ (instancetype)actionGroupWithTitle:(NSString *)title style:(UIPreviewActionStyle)style actions:(NSArray<BAPreviewAction *> *)actions;
