What is it?

HTTInputDial is circular input dial for iPhone apps. It is good for having an easy to use iPod click wheel style interface. It is used in the Unplugged app.

First install HTTInputDial with CocoaPods:

pod "HTTInputDial"

Then at the top of your View Controller add the import:

#import <HTTInputDial/HTTInputDial.h>

Create a HTTDialView:

HTTInputDial *dialView = [[HTTInputDial alloc] initWithFrame:CGRectMake(50, 50, 220, 220)
                                                  usingImage:[UIImage imageNamed:@"circle-and-arrow"]
[dialView setDelegate:self];
[dialView setValue:25];
[self.view addSubview:dialView];

The minValue and maxValue is what the input dial will stop at. fullRotationValue specifies how many units in a 360 degree spin. The example above is what you would use for a clock like interface where a full spin would be 60 minutes. You can customize the image to be rotated and there is a circle-and-arrow.png file in the repo as an example.

Set your View Controller to have HTTInputDialDelegate as a protocol and then you can respond to changes in the values. For example, this will change a label to show the value in hours and minutes:

- (void)inputDial:(HTTInputDial *)inputDial didUpdateValue:(int)value {
    NSLog(@"value = %d", value);

    // Set label
    int hours = value / 60;
    int minutes = value % 60;

    NSString *hourText   = hours == 1   ? @"hour"   : @"hours";
    NSString *minuteText = minutes == 1 ? @"minute" : @"minutes";

    if(hours > 0) {
        [self.valueLabel setText:[NSString stringWithFormat:@"%d %@ %d %@",hours, hourText, minutes, minuteText]];
    } else {
        [self.valueLabel setText:[NSString stringWithFormat:@"%d %@", minutes, minuteText]];

You will have to create your own label for the above example to work. Finally you can use [inputDial getValue] to get the current value.


Please add any issues to the Github issue tracker, and thanks for using this library!
