XMSegmentedControl is a customizable segmented control. It allows using Text, Icons, or a combination of Icons and Text as the segments.



  • iOS 8+


You can install XMSegmentedControl manually by simply copying XMSegmentedControl.swift into your project’s workspace.

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

pod "XMSegmentedControl"


  • Import XMSegmentedControl into your project.
import XMSegmentedControl
  • Use the Storyboard and drag a UIView.
  • Select the view and under the Identity Inspector select XMSegmentedControl under class.
  • Conform to the XMSegmentedControlDelegate protocol by implementing func xmSegmentedControl(xmSegmentedControl: XMSegmentedControl, selectedSegment: Int) to receive notifications on which segment was selected.
func xmSegmentedControl(xmSegmentedControl: XMSegmentedControl, selectedSegment: Int) {
print("SegmentedControl Selected Segment: (selectedSegment)")

Alternatively, create a XMSegmentedControl from code.

Text Only Segmented Control

The example below creates a text-only segmented control.

let segmentedControl3 = XMSegmentedControl(frame: CGRect(x: 0, y: 164, width: self.view.frame.width, height: 44), segmentTitle: ["Hello", "World", "Three"], selectedItemHighlightStyle: XMSelectedItemHighlightStyle.TopEdge)

segmentedControl3.backgroundColor = UIColor(red: 22/255, green: 150/255, blue: 122/255, alpha: 1)
segmentedControl3.highlightColor = UIColor(red: 25/255, green: 180/255, blue: 145/255, alpha: 1)
segmentedControl3.tint = UIColor.whiteColor()
segmentedControl3.highlightTint = UIColor.blackColor()



Icon Only Segmented Control

The example below creates an icon-only segmented control.

let icons1:[UIImage] = [UIImage(named: "icon1")!, UIImage(named: "icon2")!, UIImage(named: "icon3")!, UIImage(named: "icon4")!, UIImage(named: "icon5")!, UIImage(named: "icon6")!]

let segmentedControl4 = XMSegmentedControl(frame: CGRect(x: 0, y: 214, width: self.view.frame.width, height: 44), segmentIcon: icons1, selectedItemHighlightStyle: XMSelectedItemHighlightStyle.Background)

segmentedControl4.backgroundColor = UIColor(red: 128/255, green: 59/255, blue: 159/255, alpha: 1)
segmentedControl4.highlightColor = UIColor(red: 144/255, green: 79/255, blue: 173/255, alpha: 1)
segmentedControl4.tint = UIColor.whiteColor()



Icon + Text Segmented Control

The example below creates an Icon + Text segmented control.

let backgroundColor = UIColor(red: 205/255, green: 74/255, blue: 1/255, alpha: 1)
let highlightColor = UIColor(red: 226/255, green: 114/255, blue: 31/255, alpha: 1)

let titles = ["Hello", "World", "Two"]
let icons = [UIImage(named: "icon1")!, UIImage(named: "icon2")!, UIImage(named: "icon3")!]
let frame = CGRect(x: 0, y: 114, width: self.view.frame.width, height: 44)

let segmentedControl2 = XMSegmentedControl(frame: frame, segmentContent: (titles, icons), selectedItemHighlightStyle: XMSelectedItemHighlightStyle.BottomEdge)

segmentedControl2.backgroundColor = backgroundColor
segmentedControl2.highlightColor = highlightColor
segmentedControl2.tint = UIColor.whiteColor()
segmentedControl2.highlightTint = UIColor.blackColor()
