:star: What does it do ?

ToastCollectionViewCell is a Swift CollectionViewCell that displays a view when scrolling, reminding of a toast popping out of a toaster 🍞

Example Toast Collection View

📲 Example

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

📋 Requirements

ToastCollectionViewCell requires iOS 9 and Swift 4

📦 Installation

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

pod 'ToastCollectionViewCell'

😏 Usage

1. Create yourself a ‘Toast’ view that your cells will display upon scrolling

Create a class that inherits from the UIView class, with the shape and design you want…

class MyToast: UIView {
    // Your code, your design

2. Create your UICollectionView like you would normally do

  1. Instantiate a classic UICollectionView

  2. Instantiate a ToastCollectionViewCellDelegate delegate
    Important: It has to be declared as a class property

  3. This delegate needs a reference to your UICollectionView, pass it the view!

  4. Finally, set the delegate property of your UICollectionView, to this delegate

Set the Toast view offsets :

  • maxPositionForComponent is how high you want your toast to go when scrolling

  • offsetToComponent is the offset between the UICollectionView and each toast for triggering movements


class ViewController: UIViewController {

    var toastDelegate: ToastCollectionViewDelegate() // Class property
    var collectionView: UICollectionView?

    override func viewDidLoad() {

        // Instanciate the UICollectionView
        let collectionViewLayout = UICollectionViewLayout()
        self.collectionView = UICollectionView(frame: CGRect, collectionViewLayout: collectionViewLayout)

        // Set the offsets
        self.toastDelegate.maxPositionForComponent = 75.0
        self.toastDelegate.offsetToComponent = 20.0

        // Pass the UICollectionView to the delegate
        self.toastDelegate.collectionView = self.collectionView!

        // Set the delegates
        self.collectionView!.delegate = self.toastDelegate
        self.collectionView!.dataSource = self // Implement your methods

3. Create a UICollectionviewCell that inherits from ToastCollectionViewCell

Override the toastViewForCell() method, and return your Toast view

override func toastViewForCell() -> UIView? {
    // Return the ToastView with the size you want
    return MyToastView(frame: CGRect(x: 0, y: 0, width: 150, height: 50))


The ToastCollectionViewCell offers a preRaiseToastView(toPosition: CGFloat) method that allows you to force some Toast views to be risen. It’s useful for example for the first cells that appears when you present the CollectionView, so they don’t pop only when the user starts to scroll.


By implementing the ToastCollectionViewCellDelegate, you can be notified when any of your Toast views get to
their top position, meaning they are fully raised.

You can then trigger an action on the given Toast view.


class ExampleCell: ToastCollectionViewCell, ToastCollectionViewCellDelegate {
    func onToastFullyRaised(toast: UIView) {
        let toast = toast as! MyToastView
