Installation

Manually

Copy the IMOStyledTableViewController directory to your project

Using cocoapods

add pod 'IMOStyledTableViewController', :head to your Podfile

Usage

A – Style sheet

1 – Add a file named style.imo to your project, containing all the properties you want to customize (see the wiki or the demo for details on syntax and which properties are available).

2 – Make your table view controller, a subclass of IMOStyledTableViewController

#import "IMOStyledTableViewController.h"

@interface MyStyledTableViewController : IMOStyledTableViewController

3 – Instantiate like this

MyStyledTableViewController *mstvc = [[MyStyledTableViewController alloc] initWithStyle:UITableViewStyleGrouped
                                                                             styleSheet:nil];

4 – In your - tableView:cellForRowAtIndexPath: method, instead of using the regular boilerplate code to fire a UITableViewCell, use this:

- (UITableViewCell *)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath{

    IMOStyledCell *cell;
    cell = [IMOStyledCell cellForTableViewController:self 
                                         atIndexPath:indexPath 
                                               style:IMOStyledCellStyleValue1];
    /*
        Do whatever you have to do with your cell   
    */
    return cell;
}

Notice that you don’t have to handle dequeuing cells and declaring cell identifiers, IMOStyledTableViewController takes care of that for you.

B – Dictionary

Although it’s a good idea to use the style sheet strategy when all your Table View Controllers should use the same style, you might use the dictionary approach to customize that very single Table View Controller that may differ from the rest.
Use the -initWithStyle:styleSheet:method and pass a dictionary of key/value ‘s to it:

NSDictionary *plainStyleSheet = 
@{
IMOStyledCellBackgroundImageKey: [UIImage imageNamed:@"clouds.png"],
IMOStyledCellNavBarTintColorKey:[UIColor colorWithRed:0.145 green:0.185 blue:0.359 alpha:1.000],
IMOStyledCellTopGradientColorKey:[UIColor colorWithWhite:0.945 alpha:0.220],
IMOStyledCellBottomGradientColorKey:[UIColor colorWithRed:0.628 green:0.632 blue:0.684 alpha:0.570],
IMOStyledCellTextLabelFontKey:[UIFont fontWithName:@"HelveticaNeue" size:18.0],
IMOStyledCellTextLabelTextColorKey:[UIColor whiteColor],
IMOStyledCellTopSeparatorColorKey:[UIColor colorWithRed:0.771 green:0.793 blue:0.820 alpha:1.000],
IMOStyledCellBottomSeparatorColorKey:[UIColor lightGrayColor]
};

 MyCustomStylePlainViewController *mcspvc = [[MyCustomStylePlainViewController alloc]
                                                 initWithStyle:UITableViewStylePlain
                                                    styleSheet:plainStyleSheet];

Keys and style properties

A style property name consists of a key name as declared in IMOStyledCellKeys.h minus the prefix "IMOStyledCell" and the suffix "key".
Thus "IMOStyledCellTopGradientColorKey" gives "CellTopGradientColor".

style.imo parameters and syntax

You can enter colors in several ways

  • RGBA Colors between 0 and 1.0
  • Hex Color 6 Digits
  • Hex Color 3 Digits

For font, pass the font name and the size in float

For images, pass the name, no quote, no extension

Valid Boolean are :YES, yes, y, TRUE, true, t, NO, no, n, FALSE , F, f and of course 0 or 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9.
( see NSString boolValue for details)

Examples:
NavBarTintColor                 0.600   0.492   0.331   1.000   //RGBA
BackgroundColor                 0xCDC3B9                        // Hex, 6 digits only
BackgroundImage                 clouds                          // Image Name - Doesn't need extension
TextLabelFont                   HelveticaNeue-Bold       17.0   // Font name and size
TextLabelTextColor              #3F3B35                         // Hex, 3 or 6 digits
RoundedGroupedCellIOS6Style     NO                              // rounded cells - nostalgia mode

IMOStyledTableViewController comes with several predefined cell subclasses:

  • IMOStyledCell
  • IMOStyledEditCell
  • IMOStyledNoteViewCell
  • IMOStyledImageCell

Check the demo for examples on using these subclasses
