iOS Segmented Control Example


Swift Package Manager

BetterSegmentedControl is available through Swift Package Manager. To install it, simply go to Xcode under File > Swift Packages > Add Package Dependency...


BetterSegmentedControl is available through CocoaPods. To install it, simply add the following line to your Podfile:

# Swift 5.1
pod 'BetterSegmentedControl', '~> 1.3'

# Swift 4
pod 'BetterSegmentedControl', '1.0'

# Swift 3 / Objective-C
pod 'BetterSegmentedControl', '0.8'


If you prefer using Carthage, simply add BetterSegmentedControl to your Cartfile:

# Swift 5.1
github "gmarm/BetterSegmentedControl" ~> 1.3

# Swift 4
github "gmarm/BetterSegmentedControl" 1.0

# Swift 3 / Objective-C
github "gmarm/BetterSegmentedControl" 0.8


If you prefer not to use CocoaPods or Carthage, you can integrate BetterSegmentedControl into your project manually.


let control = BetterSegmentedControl(
    frame: CGRect(x: 0, y: 0, width: 300, height: 44),
    segments: LabelSegment.segments(withTitles: ["One", "Two", "Three"],
    normalFont: UIFont(name: "HelveticaNeue-Light", size: 14.0)!,
    normalTextColor: .lightGray,
    selectedFont: UIFont(name: "HelveticaNeue-Bold", size: 14.0)!,
    selectedTextColor: .white),
    index: 1,
    options: [.backgroundColor(.darkGray),
control.addTarget(self, action: #selector(ViewController.controlValueChanged(_:)), for: .valueChanged)

You can find different ways of using it (such as by designing it in a Storyboard file) in the example project. To run the example project, clone the repo, and run pod install from the Example directory first.
