ImageAlertAction is a simple UIAlertAction extension that adds support for an image
in the action’s button.

Action SheetAlert


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


ImageAlertAction is available through CocoaPods. To install
it, simply add the following line to your Podfile:

pod 'ImageAlertAction'


Adding an image to a UIAlertAction

Create a UIAlertAction like you’d do normally, and pass an image to the image parameter.
This will add the image on the left of the action’s button.

let settings = UIAlertAction(
  title: "Settings",
  image: #imageLiteral(resourceName: "settings"),
  style: .default

Keeping the UIImage‘s original color

By default, the image provided will be treated as a template, and will be recolored based on the
action’s style. If you want to draw the original image, you can pass an image with an
explicit rendering mode.

let settingsImage = #imageLiteral(resourceName: "settings").withRenderingMode(.alwaysOriginal) 
let settings = UIAlertAction(
  title: "Settings",
  image: settingsImage,
  style: .default

Accessing the added UIImage

As with the title and style, you can access the image set on the UIAlertAction.

let settings = UIAlertAction(
  title: "Settings",
  image: #imageLiteral(resourceName: "settings"),
  style: .default
settings.image // returns an optional UIImage

Presenting the UIAlertController

To present a UIAlertController containing the UIAlertAction, nothing changes.

let alertController = UIAlertController(
  title: "Title",
  message: "Message",
  preferredStyle: .actionSheet

let settings = UIAlertAction(
  title: "Settings",
  image: #imageLiteral(resourceName: "settings"),
  style: .default

present(alertController, animated: true)
