it, simply add the following line to your Podfile:

pod "LIHAlert"

or

Copy the LIHAlert folder into your project.

For the swift 2 version

pod 'LIHAlert', '~> 1.1.0'

Usage

    import LIHAlert

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

Templates

LIHAlert contains some predefined alert templates for each Alert type.

You can use following code snippets to use them.

1. Text Banner

text

    var textAlert: LIHAlert?
    override func viewDidLoad() {
        super.viewDidLoad()
        self.textAlert = LIHAlertManager.getTextAlert("Sample Message")
        self.textAlert?.initAlert(self.view)
    }
    func showBanner(sender: AnyObject) {
        self.textAlert?.show(nil, hidden: nil)
    }

Call showBanner() function to show the banner

2. Success Alert

success

var successAlert: LIHAlert?
override func viewDidLoad() {
    super.viewDidLoad()
    self.successAlert = LIHAlertManager.getSuccessAlert(message: "Successfully subscribed")
    self.successAlert?.initAlert(self.view)
}
func showBanner(sender: AnyObject) {
    self.successAlert?.show(nil, hidden: nil)
}

To change the icon,

    successAlert?.icon = UIImage(named:"imageName")
3. Error Alert

error

var errorAlert: LIHAlert?
override func viewDidLoad() {
    super.viewDidLoad()
    self.errorAlert = LIHAlertManager.getErrorAlert(message: "Failed. Please try again")
    self.errorAlert?.initAlert(self.view)
}
func showBanner(sender: AnyObject) {
    self.errorAlert?.show(nil, hidden: nil)
}

To change the icon,

    successAlert?.icon = UIImage(named:"imageName")
4. Text with title

textwithtitle

    var textWithTitleAlert: LIHAlert?
    override func viewDidLoad() {
        super.viewDidLoad()
        self.textWithTitleAlert = LIHAlertManager.getTextWithTitleAlert("This is The Title", message: "This is a sample message.")
        self.textWithTitleAlert?.initAlert(self.view)
    }
    func showBanner(sender: AnyObject) {
        self.textWithTitleAlert?.show(nil, hidden: nil)
    }
5. Loading Alert

This is a banner with a text and an activity indicator. This is not an auto close banner. You have to hide it when the process is finished.

processing

    var processingAlert: LIHAlert?
    override func viewDidLoad() {
        super.viewDidLoad()
        self.processingAlert = LIHAlertManager.getProcessingAlert("Fetching data...")
        self.processingAlert?.initAlert(self.view)
    }
    func showBanner(sender: AnyObject) {
        self.processingAlert?.show(nil, hidden: nil)
    }
    override hideBanner(sender: AnyObject) {
        self.processingAlert?.hide(nil)
    }

Call showBanner() function to show the banner and hideBanner() to hide the banner.
To change the activity indicator style,

    processingAlert?.activityIndicatorStyle = UIActivityIndicatorViewStyle.WhiteLarge
6. Text with a button Alert

This alert contains a button along with a text. More suitable for notifying important messages to user.
withbutton

    var textWithButtonAlert: LIHAlert?
    override func viewDidLoad() {
        super.viewDidLoad()
        self.textWithButtonAlert = LIHAlertManager.getTextWithButtonAlert("You have successfully subscribed for the monthly newsletter", buttonText: "Dismiss")
        self.textWithButtonAlert?.initAlert(self.view)
    }
    func showBanner(sender: AnyObject) {
        textWithButtonAlert?.show(nil, hidden: nil)
    }

Call showBanner() function to show the banner.
Implement LIHAlertDelegate for button click events.

class ViewController: LIHAlertDelegate {
    func buttonPressed(button: UIButton) {
        print(“You have pressed the button”)
        self.textWithButtonAlert?.hideAlert(nil)
    }
}
7. Text with two buttons Alert

This alert contains two buttons along with a text.

twobuttons

    var textWithTwoButtonsAlert: LIHAlert?

    override func viewDidLoad() {
        super.viewDidLoad()
        self.textWithTwoButtonsAlert = LIHAlertManager.getTextWithTwoButtonsAlert("Do you want to subscribe for the monthly newsletter?", buttonOneText: "Subscribe", buttonTwoText: "Cancel")
        self.textWithTwoButtonsAlert?.initAlert(self.view)
    }
    func showBanner(sender: AnyObject) {
        textWithTwoButtonsAlert?.show(nil, hidden: nil)
    }

Call showBanner() function to show the banner.
Implement LIHAlertDelegate for button click events.

class ViewController: LIHAlertDelegate {
    func buttonOnePressed(button: UIButton) {
        self.textWithTwoButtonsAlert?.hideAlert({ () -> () in
            self.successAlert?.show(nil, hidden: nil)
        })
    }
    func buttonTwoPressed(button: UIButton) {
        self.textWithTwoButtonsAlert?.hideAlert(nil)
    }
}
8. Custom View Alert

You can specify any view to act as the banner.

customview

    var customViewAlert: LIHAlert?

    override func viewDidLoad() {
        super.viewDidLoad()
    //In this case I am using an ImageView as the banner
        let customView = UIImageView(frame: CGRectMake(0.0, 64.0, 100, 50))
        customView.image = UIImage(named: "customViewImage")
        self.customViewAlert = LIHAlertManager.getCustomViewAlert(customView)
        self.customViewAlert?.initAlert(self.view)
    }
    func showBanner(sender: AnyObject) {
        self.customViewAlert?.show(nil, hidden: nil)
    }

How to embed a view controller

custom_list

var customViewAlert: LIHAlert?
override func viewDidLoad() {
    super.viewDidLoad()
    let vc = (self.storyboard?.instantiateViewController(withIdentifier: "TableVc"))!
    self.customViewAlert = LIHAlertManager.getCustomViewAlert(customView: vc.view)
    self.customViewAlert?.initAlert(self.view)
    self.addChildViewController(vc)
    vc.didMove(toParentViewController: self)
}
func showBanner(sender: AnyObject) {
    self.customViewAlert?.show(nil, hidden: nil)
}

See ‘CustomAlertsViewController’ for more embed view controller examples

How to create your own banner

    let alertTextAlert: LIHAlert = LIHAlert()
    alertTextAlert.alertType = LIHAlertType.Text
    alertTextAlert.contentText = message
    alertTextAlert.alertColor = UIColor(red: 102.0/255.0, green: 197.0/255.0, blue: 241.0/255.0, alpha: 1.0)
    alertTextAlert.alertHeight = 50.0
    alertTextAlert.alertAlpha = 1.0
    alertTextAlert.autoCloseEnabled=true
    alertTextAlert.contentTextColor = UIColor.whiteColor()
    alertTextAlert.hasNavigationBar = true
    alertTextAlert.paddingTop = 0.0
    alertTextAlert.animationDuration = 0.35
    alertTextAlert.autoCloseTimeInterval = 1.5
ALert Types
    enum LIHAlertType {
            case Custom, Text, TextWithLoading, TextWithIcon, TextWithButton, TextWithTwoButtons, TextWithTitle
    }

Use the completion callbacks

    //when showing an auto hiding banner
    lihAlert?.show({ () -> () in
                //alert showed
            }, hidden: { () -> () in
                //alert hidden
        })

        //when hiding a banner
        lihAlert?.hideAlert({ () -> () in
            //Banner hidden
        })

Known Issues

1. Top margin

In some projects the alert may appear with a margin on top. Hopefully this will be fixed in the next release. Until then use the following solution.

Solution

Even the navigation bar is there, set it to false.

alert.hasNavigationBar = false
