DataSource, Delegate, Mode & Style

UIPhotoGallery is implemented in UITableView style, which uses dataSource and delegate pointers to contruct UI components.

DataSource, Mode & Style

To declare number of views showing in gallery:

- (NSInteger)numberOfViewsInPhotoGallery:(UIPhotoGalleryView*)photoGallery;

To declare a view component in specific index:

- (UIImage*)photoGallery:(UIPhotoGalleryView*)photoGallery localImageAtIndex:(NSInteger)index;
- (NSURL*)photoGallery:(UIPhotoGalleryView*)photoGallery remoteImageURLAtIndex:(NSInteger)index;
- (UIView*)photoGallery:(UIPhotoGalleryView*)photoGallery customViewAtIndex:(NSInteger)index;

At a moment, only one method will be used to contruct view components for gallery, depends on UIPhotoGalleryView’s galleryMode property. So far, there are 3 modes supported:

UIPhotoGalleryModeImageLocal
UIPhotoGalleryModeImageRemote
UIPhotoGalleryModeCustomView

To declare a caption component in specific index:

- (NSString*)photoGallery:(UIPhotoGalleryView*)photoGallery plainTextCaptionAtIndex:(NSInteger)index;
- (NSAttributedString*)photoGallery:(UIPhotoGalleryView*)photoGallery attributedTextCaptionAtIndex:(NSInteger)index;
- (UIView*)photoGallery:(UIPhotoGalleryView*)photoGallery customViewCaptionAtIndex:(NSInteger)index;

Similar to view component, only one caption construction method is used at a moment to contruct caption for gallery item, depends on UIPhotoGalleryView‘s captionStyle, including 3 supported styles:

UIPhotoCaptionStylePlainText
UIPhotoCaptionStyleAttributedText
UIPhotoCaptionStyleCustomView

Delegate

So far, UIPhotoGallery provides 3 delegate methods:

- (void)photoGallery:(UIPhotoGalleryView*)photoGallery didTapAtIndex:(NSInteger)index;
- (void)photoGallery:(UIPhotoGalleryView*)photoGallery didDoubleTapAtIndex:(NSInteger)index;
- (UIPhotoGalleryDoubleTapHandler)photoGallery:(UIPhotoGalleryView*)photoGallery doubleTapHandlerAtIndex:(NSInteger)index;
- (void)photoGallery:(UIPhotoGalleryView *)photoGallery didMoveToIndex:(NSInteger)index;

Use photoGallery:didTapAtIndex: method to handle single tap at gallery item.

Use photoGallery:doubleTapHandlerAtIndex: method to set default action for double tap gesture recognizer. Options including:

UIPhotoGalleryDoubleTapHandlerNone
UIPhotoGalleryDoubleTapHandlerZoom
UIPhotoGalleryDoubleTapHandlerCustom

If this method return UIPhotoGalleryDoubleTapHandlerZoom, current photo item will be zoomed at tapping position. If UIPhotoGalleryDoubleTapHandlerCustom returned, action will be dispatched to photoGallery:didDoubleTapAtIndex: if implemented. Otherwise, if UIPhotoGalleryDoubleTapHandlerNone returned, nothing happens.

Use photoGallery:didMoveToIndex: method to get notified if the currentIndex changes. (thanks to jstubenrauch)

UIPhotoGalleryView

Properties

There are several properties that are helpful to quickly customize your gallery

@property (nonatomic, assign) UIPhotoGalleryMode galleryMode;
@property (nonatomic, assign) UIPhotoCaptionStyle captionStyle;
@property (nonatomic, assign) BOOL peakSubView;
@property (nonatomic, assign) BOOL showsScrollIndicator;
@property (nonatomic, assign) BOOL verticalGallery;
@property (nonatomic, assign) CGFloat subviewGap;
@property (nonatomic, assign) NSInteger initialIndex;
@property (nonatomic, readonly) NSInteger currentIndex;

As mentioned above, galleryMode and captionStyle are used to change gallery’s mode (showing local images, remote images or custom views) and caption style (plain texts, attributed texts or custom views). By default, galleryMode is set to UIPhotoGalleryModeLocalImage and captionStyle is set to UIPhotoCaptionStylePlainText.

Use peakSubView to enable/disable gallery item’s peak (draw items outside the UIPhotoGallery’s frame). By default, this property is set to NO.

vPhotoGallery.peakSubView = YES;

Use showsScrollIndicator to show/hide scrollbar indicator. The direction of scrollbar is automatically adjusted to reflect gallery scrolling direction.

Use verticalGallery to set gallery’s scroll direction to horizontal/vertical. By default, this property is set to NO (horizontal scrolling).

vPhotoGallery.verticalGallery = YES;

Use subviewGap to adjust a blank gap between gallery items. By default, this property is set to 30.0.

vPhotoGallery.subviewGap = 50;

Use initialIndex to set the initial position when view is loaded. By default, this property is set to 0.

vPhotoGallery.initialIndex = 4;

The readonly currentIndex property returns current showing gallery item index.

Note: all of these properties may be set during runtime, your gallery will change right after setters are called without any additional methods calling.

Methods

Comming along with properties to customize gallery’s style, some helper methods are provided to control the scrolling of your gallery.

- (void)setInitialIndex:(NSInteger)initialIndex animated:(BOOL)animation;
- (BOOL)scrollToPage:(NSInteger)page animated:(BOOL)animation;
- (BOOL)scrollToBesidePage:(NSInteger)delta animated:(BOOL)animation;

The method setInitialIndex:animated: is an alternative way to animate the initialization page setup. The default initialIndex property has no animation effect.

[vPhotoGallery setInitialIndex:4 animated:YES]; 
[vPhotoGallery setInitialIndex:4 animated:NO]; // Equivalent to vPhotoGallery.initialIndex = 4;

The method scrollToBeSidePage use a NSInteger delta param to scroll to the next or previous delta pages from current page.

[vPhotoGallery scrollToBesidePage:1 animated:YES];
[vPhotoGallery scrollToBesidePage:-2 animated:YES];

All validation of page index are done for you and returned YES if the index is valid and scrolling is made, otherwise NO.

Note: To reload the gallery view, simply call [galleryView layoutSubviews]

UIPhotoGalleryViewController

As an extension, UIPhotoGalleryViewController is created to help simplify your process of creating a view controller for gallery browsing. This view controller already included a UIPhotoGalleryView item named vPhotoGallery, which is initialized with default configurations.

There are same properties with UIPhotoGalleryView that you can use to set for your vPhotoGallery, except delegate (by default, gallery’s delegate is handled by the view controller itself):

@property (nonatomic, assign) id<UIPhotoGalleryDataSource> dataSource;
@property (nonatomic, assign) UIPhotoGalleryMode galleryMode;
@property (nonatomic, assign) UIPhotoCaptionStyle captionStyle;
@property (nonatomic, assign) BOOL circleScroll;
@property (nonatomic, assign) BOOL peakSubView;
@property (nonatomic, assign) BOOL verticalGallery;
@property (nonatomic, assign) CGFloat subviewGap;
@property (nonatomic, assign) NSInteger initialIndex;

@property (nonatomic, assign) BOOL showStatusBar;

An additional property is included, showStatusBar to force hiding status bar if application status bar is visible. Noted: if this property is set to YES, navigation bar will be hidden too.

Beside default dataSource methods from UIPhotoGalleryDataSource, there are 2 additional methods to setup top & bottom view for gallery view controller:

- (UIView*)customTopViewForGalleryViewController:(UIPhotoGalleryViewController*)galleryViewController;
- (UIView*)customBottomViewForGalleryViewController:(UIPhotoGalleryViewController*)galleryViewController;

If these methods are not implemented, UIPhotoGalleryViewController provide 2 default views for top & bottom for essential actions (dismiss view controller, scroll next & previous page).

If implemented, a custom view will be placed at top or bottom of view controller respectively.

Otherwise, if these methods are implemented and returned nil, the respective view will be hidden from view controller.

By default, for gallery delegate handling, when user single tap in gallery, top and bottom view will be hidden with animation.

Installation & Dependencies

Installation

For minimum requirement, add 4 following files to your project:

UIPhotoGalleryView.h
UIPhotoGalleryView.m
UIPhotoItemView.h
UIPhotoItemView.m

for UIPhotoGalleryView UI components & methods. The 2 additional files:

UIPhotoGalleryViewController.h
UIPhotoGalleryViewController.m

should be included only if you wants to use UIPhotoGalleryViewController.

Setup

The UIPhotoGalleryView could be initialized using default method initWithFrame: or link the custom class from XIB file in following steps:

  1. Go to your XIB file
  2. Click on Files owner transparent box on the left
  3. Open up your inspections tab (Third button on right in the View Section – in between Editor and Organizer)
  4. Go to your identity Inspector (3rd from the left) underneath the editor organizer view tab.
  5. Fix the custom class – Class option to whatever class you want it to respond to.

The dataSource and delegate can also be linked in Interface Builder.

Depenencies

The project uses SDWebImage as default image loading and displaying. Please follow its installation instructions to setup the project or customize your image loading methods inside UIRemotePhotoItem class implementation (UIPhotoItemView.m)

Requirements & Supports

UIPhotoGalleryView requires iOS SDK 5.0 and above with ARC enabled.

The project’s already supported multiple screen sizes and orientations (auto-resize & auto-rotate).
