FUIGridTableViewCell

open class FUIGridTableViewCell : FUIBaseDrawingTableViewCell<FUIObjectView>, FUIAccessoryViewDelegate

FUIGridTableViewCell is a UITableViewCell subclass utilized for displaying data in a ‘column-based’ table, a la a spreadsheet table. Each row is configured by a list of FUIGridRowItem instances. The cells adapt between regular and compact horizontal mode, to switch from column-based layout in regular mode, to an ‘object-view’ layout in compact mode.

A binding is automatically generated for each row item, to an associated text or image type of property in the object view layout. A developer may customize these bindings, and choose to bind only a subset of columns, using the binding property on the FUIGridRowImageItem or FUIGridRowTextItem.

In regular mode, columns widths may be specified in absolute points, or as a set of fractions in 0.0..<1. A developer may also designate one column for flexible width, by assigning the value -1 to that column width.

Row content will center-align vertically if all row items have a single line of text; rows with multiple lines of text will be top-aligned.

Remark

Developers are responsible for ensuring that the column widths supplied do not exceed the available dimensions.

Example Initialization and Configuration:

// row data list
var contentData: [FUIGridRowItem] {
    let item0 = FUIGridRowImageItem(image: <#my image#>))
    let item1 = FUIGridRowTextItem(text: "SAP")
    let item2 = FUIGridRowTextItem(number: 114.23)
    let item3 = FUIGridRowTextItem(number: 114.84)
    let item4 = FUIGridRowTextItem(number: 113.92)
    let item5 = FUIGridRowTextItem(number: 114.76)
    return [item0, item1, item2, item3, item4, item5]
}

// header data list
var headerData: [FUIGridRowItem] {
    let item0 = FUIGridRowHeaderItem(text: " ")
    let item1 = FUIGridRowHeaderItem(text: "Symbol")
    let item2 = FUIGridRowHeaderItem(text: "Open")
    let item3 = FUIGridRowHeaderItem(text: "High")
    let item4 = FUIGridRowHeaderItem(text: "Low")
    let item5 = FUIGridRowHeaderItem(text: "Close")
    return [item0, item1, item2, item3, item4, item5]
}

// set column widths.  Should be shared by rows and header.
let columnWidths = [-1, 0.2, 0.1, 0.1, 0.1, 0.1]

// configure row cell
cell.gridItems = contentData
cell.columnWidthPercent = columnWidths
cell.accessoryType = .disclosureIndicator


// configure header view
header.gridItems = headerData
header.columnWidthPercent = columnWidths
header.accessoryType = .disclosureIndicator

Theming

In the .nss file you can use the following parameters:

  • fdlFUIGridTableViewCell: changes the background of the cell
  • fdlFUIGridTableViewCell_selected: changes the selected background of the cell

Example:

fdlFUIGridTableViewCell {
   background-color: clear;
}
fdlFUIGridTableViewCell_selected {
   background-color: @line;
}

Handle layout on view controller rotation

It is uncommon, but sometimes the state of the view controller will require you to ask the table view to recalculate the grid layout. This could occur, if a new view controller is pushed onto the stack, the user rotates the device, then pops the top view controller, returning to the grid.

To avoid issues related to the state of the view controller, use the UITableView.beginUpdates() API to recompute the cell heights. Depending on the state condition, this should be done in the UIViewController.willTransitionTo(size:) method, or viewDidAppear().

Example:

override func viewDidAppear(_ animated: Bool) {
   super.viewDidAppear(animated)

   DispatchQueue.main.async {
       self.tableView.beginUpdates()
       self.tableView.endUpdates()
   }
}
  • Binding definitions, to respective views in object view layout

    • headline: Object view headline area (text)
    • subheadline: Object view subheadline area (text)
    • footnote: Object view footnote area (text)
    • status: Object view status area (text)
    • substatus: Object view substatus area (text)
    • statusImage: Object view statusImage area (image)
    • substatusImage: Object view substatusImage area (image)
    • detailImage: Object view detailImage area (image)

    Declaration

    Swift

    public enum ObjectViewProperty
  • An array of FUIGridRowItem objects in the cell.

    Declaration

    Swift

    public var items: [FUIGridRowItem]? { get set }
  • An array of fixed width for each column.

    Set -1 for that column if it should have dynamic width. At most one column can be dynamic. For example, [50, -1, 100] means the width of first column is 50, width of third column is 100 and second column will take the remaining space available.

    Declaration

    Swift

    public var columnWidth: [CGFloat]?
  • An array of percent width for each column.

    Set -1 for that column if it should have dynamic width. At most one column can be dynamic. For example, [0.2, -1, 0.4] means the width percent of first column is 0.2, width percent of third column is 0.4 and second column will take the remaining space available which is 0.4 in this case.

    Declaration

    Swift

    public var columnWidthPercent: [CGFloat]?
  • The spacing between two columns.

    Declaration

    Swift

    public var spacing: CGFloat
  • Type of the accessory view.

    Declaration

    Swift

    @IBInspectable
    override open var accessoryType: UITableViewCellAccessoryType { get set }
