I did much work to support this library from iOS 5. (and till iOS 13 and we keep going) 🚀

I still need help with the future support of this repo. If you are interested to help - please drop a comment into issue #348 🙏

Please welcome: ActionSheetPicker-3.0!

ActionSheetPicker = UIPickerView + UIActionSheet


Well, that's how it started. Now, the following is more accurate:

  • iPhone/iPod ActionSheetPicker = ActionSheetPicker = A Picker + UIActionSheet
  • iPad ActionSheetPicker = A Picker + UIPopoverController


Easily present an ActionSheet with a PickerView, allowing the user to select from a number of immutable options.


  • Spawn pickers with convenience function - delegate or reference not required. Just provide a target/action callback.
  • Add buttons to UIToolbar for quick selection (see ActionSheetDatePicker below)
  • Delegate protocol available for more control
  • Universal (iPhone/iPod/iPad)


There are 4 distinct picker view options:

  • ActionSheetStringPicker
  • ActionSheetDistancePicker
  • ActionSheetDatePicker
  • ActionSheetCustomPicker

We'll focus here on how to use the ActionSheetStringPicker since it's most likely the one you want to use.

Basic Usage

For detailed info about customizations, please look BASIC USAGE

  • Custom buttons view
  • Custom buttons callbacks
  • Action by clicking outside of the picker
  • Background color and blur effect
  • Other customizations

For detailed examples, please check Example Projects in this repo.

 ActionSheetMultipleStringPicker.show(withTitle: "Multiple String Picker", rows: [
            ["One", "Two", "A lot"],
            ["Many", "Many more", "Infinite"]
            ], initialSelection: [2, 2], doneBlock: {
                picker, indexes, values in

                print("values = \(values)")
                print("indexes = \(indexes)")
                print("picker = \(picker)")
        }, cancel: { ActionMultipleStringCancelBlock in return }, origin: sender)
// Inside a IBAction method:

// Create an array of strings you want to show in the picker:
    NSArray *colors = @[@"Red", @"Green", @"Blue", @"Orange"];

// Done block:
    ActionStringDoneBlock done = ^(ActionSheetStringPicker *picker, NSInteger selectedIndex, id selectedValue) {
        NSLog(@"Picker: %@", picker);
        NSLog(@"Selected Index: %@", @(selectedIndex));
        NSLog(@"Selected Value: %@", selectedValue);

// cancel block:
    ActionStringCancelBlock cancel = ^(ActionSheetStringPicker *picker) {
        NSLog(@"Block Picker Canceled");

// Run!
    [ActionSheetStringPicker showPickerWithTitle:@"Select a Color" rows:colors initialSelection:0 doneBlock:done cancelBlock:cancel origin:sender];
