Open Source iOS Library For Creating Highly Customizable iPhone And iPad Popovers


Earlier this year I mentioned an excellent open source library enabling you to create customizable iPad popover action sheets.

Here’s another excellent open source iOS UI component providing a popover that works on both the iPhone and iPad with many customization options called WYPopoverController from Nicolas Cheng.

You can customize using UIAppearance and according to the readme the following customizations are available:

– tintColor
– strokeColor
– fillTopColor
– fillBottomColor
– glossShadowColor
– glossShadowOffset
– glossShadowBlurRadius
– borderWidth
– arrowBase
– arrowHeight
– outerShadowColor
– outerShadowBlurRadius
– outerShadowOffset
– outerCornerRadius
– innerShadowColor
– innerShadowBlurRadius
– innerShadowOffset
– innerCornerRadius
– viewContentInsets

And here’s a set of images showing various customized popovers created with WYPopoverController:

You can find WYPopoverController on Github here.

A very nice popover control that adjusts properly for position and alignment of the device.
