Google-Mobile-Ads-SDK banners in interface builder with handy delegate callbacks.

Normally requesting a banner from Google’s Mobile Ads SDK involves code like this:

- (void)viewDidLoad {
  [super viewDidLoad];

  // Create a banner of the standard size
  self.bannerView = [[DFPBannerView alloc] initWithAdSize:kGADAdSizeBanner];

  // Configure
  self.bannerView.adUnitID = MY_AD_UNIT_ID;
  self.bannerView.rootViewController = self;

  // Add to view
  [self.view addSubview:self.bannerView];

  // Load the ad, enable testing on simulator
  GADRequest *request = [GADRequest request];
  request.testDevices = @[GAD_SIMULATOR_ID];
  [self.bannerView loadRequest: request];

Using GVGoogleBannerView however, you simply drag a UIView into your interface, set its size to the required banner size, change its class to GVGoogleBannerView and set its googleBannerViewDelegate outlet to the view controller.

Your view controller must then implement the only required delegate method:

- (NSString *)googleBannerViewAdUnitID {
  return MY_AD_UNIT_ID;

GVGoogleBannerView also (optionally) adds a close button to the banner, makes it a lot easier to provide extra targeting parameters and has easy delegate callbacks for when banners are opened or closed. You can for example add a content inset to your tableview, scrollview or collectionview:

- (void)googleBannerViewOpened:(GVGoogleBannerView *) googleBannerView {
    UIEdgeInsets insets = UIEdgeInsetsMake(0, 0, googleBannerView.frame.size.height, 0);
    self.collectionView.contentInset = insets;
    self.collectionView.scrollIndicatorInsets = insets;

- (void)googleBannerViewClosed:(GVGoogleBannerView *)googleBannerView {
    self.collectionView.contentInset = UIEdgeInsetsZero;
    self.collectionView.scrollIndicatorInsets = UIEdgeInsetsZero;
