How to add buttons, images, and other QUI elements in each row of TableView? (iOS, Swift)

advertisements

I am able to display a list of text (one piece of text in each row) in UITableView in iOS using Swift. My question is - what if I wanted to add more UI Elements in each row - like a button, image, etc. How can I do that? Would appreciate the help for Swift.

What I am already able to do:

Code I use

class ViewController: UIViewController, UITableViewDelegate {

var cellInfo = ["Rob", "Timmy", "George"]

override func viewDidLoad() {
    super.viewDidLoad()
    // Do any additional setup after loading the view, typically from a nib.
}

func tableView(tableView: UITableView, numberOfRowsInSection section: Int) -> Int {

    return 3
}

func tableView(tableView: UITableView, cellForRowAtIndexPath indexPath: NSIndexPath) -> UITableViewCell {

    let cell = UITableViewCell(style: UITableViewCellStyle.Default, reuseIdentifier: "mycell") //my cell is the identifier

    cell.textLabel?.text = cellInfo[indexPath.row] //"Test"

    return cell

}

override func didReceiveMemoryWarning() {
    super.didReceiveMemoryWarning()
    // Dispose of any resources that can be recreated.
}

}

Result I have (below). I am only able to add a text, how to add more elements?


From your main.storyboard, drag the imageView, labels, and whatever you want into the prototype cell.

You'll also need to establish the IBOutlets for each element you drag in there so you can reference them in your code.

There are other ways, like selecting the cell style. For example, tables comes with 4 styles out of the box. The basic style features a imageView and label.

If you want more power, the style should be custom and you will drag whatever you need to the prototype cell.
