Adding possibility to deselect a section (by touching on selected section).

segmentedControl.deselectable = YES;



A drop-in replacement for UISegmentedControl mimicking the style of the segmented control used in Google Currents and various other Google products.


  • Supports both text and images
  • Support horizontal scrolling
  • Font and all colors are customizable
  • Supports selection indicator both on top and bottom
  • Supports blocks
  • Works with ARC and iOS >= 5



The easiest way of installing HMSegmentedControl is via CocoaPods.

 pod '[email protected]', '~> 1.4.1'

Old-fashioned way

  • Add HMSegmentedControl.h and HMSegmentedControl.m to your project.
  • Add QuartzCore.framework to your linked frameworks.
  • #import "HMSegmentedControl.h" where you want to add the control.


The code below will create a segmented control with the default looks:

HMSegmentedControl *segmentedControl = [[HMSegmentedControl alloc] initWithSectionTitles:@[@"One", @"Two", @"Three"]];
segmentedControl.frame = CGRectMake(10, 10, 300, 60);
[segmentedControl addTarget:self action:@selector(segmentedControlChangedValue:) forControlEvents:UIControlEventValueChanged];
[self.view addSubview:segmentedControl];

Included is a demo project showing how to fully customise the control.
