MenuItemKit provides image and block(closure) support for UIMenuItem.

MenuItemKit is a Swift project but Objective-C is supported without any doubt.


How to use

  1. Add the MenuItemKit repository as a submodule of your application’s repository.
  2. Drag and drop MenuItemKit.xcodeproj into your application’s Xcode project or workspace.
  3. On the “General” tab of your application target’s settings, add MenuItemKit.framework to the “Embedded Binaries” section.

If you would prefer to use Carthage or CocoaPods, please pull request.

MenuItemKit is very easy to adopt, it provides only 2 APIs:

typealias MenuItemAction = (UIMenuItem) -> ()

extension UIMenuItem {
    convenience init(title: String, image: UIImage?, action: MenuItemAction)
    convenience init(title: String, action: MenuItemAction)

For Objective-C, MenuItemKit provides prefixed API names for safe reasons:

@interface UIMenuItem (SWIFT_EXTENSION(MenuItemKit))
- (nonnull instancetype)mik_initWithTitle:(NSString * _Nonnull)title image:(UIImage * _Nullable)image action:(MenuItemAction _Nonnull)action;
- (nonnull instancetype)mik_initWithTitle:(NSString * _Nonnull)title action:(MenuItemAction _Nonnull)action;

Just init UIMenuItems with above APIs, and set them to menuItems of UIMenuItemController. MenuItemKit will take care of the rest parts, you don’t need to add any code related to responder chain in your view or view controller.

Check dome projects (both Swift and Objective-C are provided) for more details.

Advance Usage

For menu items out of your control, you can use static func installTo(responder: UIResponder, shouldShowForAction: @escaping (Selector, Bool) -> Bool = default) to configure items visibility. Check AutoPopupMenuControllerDemo.
