FUIListPickerTableViewController

open class FUIListPickerTableViewController : UITableViewController, UISearchResultsUpdating, UISearchBarDelegate, FUIBarcodeScanViewControllerDelegate

This FUIListPickerTableViewController is to show a list of table view cells to let user select one of the cell. Developer needs to provide implementation of FUIListPickerDataSource, and FUIListPickerSearchResultsUpdating if search is enabled, in order to use FUIListPickerTableViewController.

If the isDismissedOnSelection property is set to true, and the allowsMultipleSelection property is set to false, then when user selected one cell by tapping the displayed cell, the onSelectionHandler property will be invoked to notify the user selection. The table view will then be dismissed.

There will be a “Done” button shown in the navigation bar if the isDismissedOnSelection property is set to false or the allowsMultipleSelection property is set to true. The onSelectionHandler property will be invoked after user tapped the “Done” button if the allowsMultipleSelection property is set to false, or the onMultipleSelectionHandler property will be invoked if the allowsMultipleSelection property is set to true. Then the table view will be dismissed.

There will be a “Select All” button in the “All” section header, if multiple selections is allowed and not all items are selected. All items are selected when the “Select All” button is tapped. Once all items are selected, the button title will change to “Deselect All”. All items are de-selected when “Deselect All” button is tapped.

Also, a “Deselect All” button will be in the “Selected” section header when multiple selections is allowed. The “Selected” section will appear if the items in the list could not be displayed in one screen, and there are one or more items selected. All selected items will be de-selected when “Deselect All” button is tapped.

Here is a code snippet of a typical usage:


let listPickerTableViewController = createInstanceFromStoryboard()
var listPicker = listPickerTableViewController.listPicker

listPicker.title = "Magic School"
listPicker.register(FUIObjectTableViewCell.self, forCellReuseIdentifier: FUIObjectTableViewCell.reuseIdentifier)
listPicker.dataSource = self.objectCellListPickerDataSource
listPicker.prompt = "Select One"
listPicker.estimatedRowHeight = 98

listPicker.isSearchEnabled = true
listPicker.searchResultsUpdating = self.objectCellListPickerDataSource
listPicker.isBarcodeScannerEnabled = true
listPicker.barcodeScanMode = .all
listPicker.barcodeScanResultTransformer = { (scanString) -> String in
return "S"
}

listPickerTableViewController.onSelectionHandler = {
self.select1Result.text = self.objectCellListPickerDataSource.descriptionForSelectedItems(at: [$0])
}
listPickerTableViewController.showsCancelButton = true
listPickerTableViewController.isDismissedOnSelection = false

// Select item at index 4 as default, which is the 5th item.
listPickerTableViewController.selectItem(4)

let navController = UINavigationController(rootViewController: listPickerTableViewController)
self.present(navController, animated: true, completion: nil)

  • Creates a FUIListPickerTableViewController object from storyboard.

    Declaration

    Swift

    public class func createInstanceFromStoryboard() -> FUIListPickerTableViewController

    Return Value

    The instantiated FUIListPickerTableViewController object.

  • The effective UINavigationController.

    Developer could set this to the UINavigationController for this view controller. If developer did not set this value, the UINavigationController of this view controller will be returned if it is not nil. Otherwise, the root UINavigationController from the keyWindow, if any, will be returned.

    Declaration

    Swift

    public var effectiveNavigationController: UINavigationController? { get set }
  • The FUIListPicker for this controller.

    Declaration

    Swift

    public var listPicker: FUIListPicker
  • Undocumented

    Declaration

    Swift

    open override func viewDidDisappear(_ animated: Bool)
  • The block is to be invoked when selection is made with isDataSourceRequiringUniqueIdentifiers false and allowsMultipleSelection false.

    Declaration

    Swift

    public var onSelectionHandler: ((Int) -> Void)?
  • The block is to be invoked when selection is made with isDataSourceRequiringUniqueIdentifiers false and allowsMultipleSelection true.

    Declaration

    Swift

    public var onMultipleSelectionHandler: (([Int]) -> Void)?
  • The block is to be invoked when selection is made with isDataSourceRequiringUniqueIdentifiers true and allowsMultipleSelection false.

    Declaration

    Swift

    public var onUuidSelectionHandler: ((String) -> Void)?
  • The block is to be invoked when selection is made with isDataSourceRequiringUniqueIdentifiers true and allowsMultipleSelection true.

    Declaration

    Swift

    public var onUuidMultipleSelectionHandler: (([String]) -> Void)?
  • A boolean value indicating to show the Cancel button or not. Default is false.

    Declaration

    Swift

    public var showsCancelButton: Bool { get set }
  • If this property is true, this list picker table view will be dismissed once user makes the selection.

    If this is false, there will be a “Done” button in addition to a “Cancle” button. User needs to tap the “Done” button to dismiss the list picker table view. The onSelectionHandler will then be invoked. The default is true.

    This property is ignored if allowsMultipleSelection is true.

    Declaration

    Swift

    public var isDismissedOnSelection: Bool
  • Indicates if user can select multiple values. Default is false, meaning by default user may select only one value.

    Declaration

    Swift

    public var allowsMultipleSelection: Bool { get set }
  • Indicates if empty selection is allowed.

    The default value is false, meaning by default user must select at least one item.

    Declaration

    Swift

    public var allowsEmptySelection: Bool
  • Select an item with an index programatically.

    This is to be used to pre-select an item before presenting this controller. Note that this function does nothing when the isDataSourceRequiringUniqueIdentifiers property of the FUIListPicker is true.

    Declaration

    Swift

    public func selectItem(_ index: Int)

    Parameters

    index

    The index for the selected item in the list.

  • Select an item using unique identifier programatically.

    This is to be used to pre-select an item before presenting this controller. Note that this function does nothing when the isDataSourceRequiringUniqueIdentifiers property of the FUIListPicker is false.

    Declaration

    Swift

    public func selectItem(_ uniqueIdentifier: String)

    Parameters

    uniqueIdentifier

    The unique identifier for the selected item.
