iOS Open Source: Feature Rich Drop-Down Menu

Fri, Mar 15

Last week’s source project provided a nice, no-frills, drop-down menu. This weeks project, created by Roman Efimov, is also a drop-down menu, however, this control has numerous features that set it apart, including support for icons and both a title and sub-title. Many of the control’s attributes (colors, fonts, sizes, etc) are customizable.

A screenshot of the drop-down menu is below:


Working with the control is very straightforward, to create an entry in the menu is as simple as:

REMenuItem *homeItem = [[REMenuItem alloc]
   initWithTitle:@"Home"
   subtitle:@"Return to Home Screen"
   image:[UIImage imageNamed:@"Icon_Home"]
   highlightedImage:nil
   action:^(REMenuItem *item) 
   {
     NSLog(@"Item: %@", item);
   }
];

I like the integration of a block to manage the action.

Download REMenu

I would recommend contacting the developer of REMenu, he may be able to help (see the github link).
