View to show small text information blocks with arrow pointed to another view.In most cases it will be a button that was pressed.




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



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

pod "InfoView"

Simple appearance

 let infoView = InfoView(text: "Your message here") view, centerView: button)

where view is view of your visible view controller, centerView is a view where arrow will be pointed to


You can set a delegate and get events when view will appear/hide:

 infoView.delegate = self

 // In your delegate class
 func infoViewDidShow(view: InfoView) {
     print("Now visible")


Set arrow position. In this case you will be responsible for possible errors (for example if there are not enough space to show text etc.)

 infoView.arrowPosition = .Left

Set animation:

 infoView.animation = InfoViewAnimation.None                // Without animation
 infoView.animation = InfoViewAnimation.FadeIn              // FadeIn animation
 infoView.animation = InfoViewAnimation.FadeInAndScale      // FadeIn and Scale animation

Set custom font:

 infoView.font = UIFont(name: "AvenirNextCondensed-Regular", size: 16)

Set custom text color:

 infoView.textColor = UIColor.grayColor()

Set custom background color:

 infoView.backgroundColor = UIColor.blackColor()

Set custom layer properties:

 infoView.layer.shadowColor = UIColor.whiteColor().CGColor
 infoView.layer.cornerRadius = 15
 infoView.layer.shadowRadius = 5
 infoView.layer.shadowOffset = CGPoint(x: 2, y: 2)
 infoView.layer.shadowOpacity = 0.5

Hide with a delay

Hide InfoView after delay automatically

 infoView.hideAfterDelay = 2
