Creating a Popup

Create a popup with custom animations and behaviors. Customizations can also be accessed via properties on the CNPPopupTheme instance:

- (instancetype)initWithContents:(NSArray *)contents;

contents only accepts an array of UIView objects.


- (void)presentPopupControllerAnimated:(BOOL)flag;

- (void)dismissPopupControllerAnimated:(BOOL)flag;


A CNPPopupTheme instance can be created and assigned to the theme property of a CNPPopupController instance.

@property (nonatomic, strong) UIColor *backgroundColor;

@property (nonatomic, assign) CGFloat cornerRadius;

@property (nonatomic, assign) UIEdgeInsets popupContentInsets;

@property (nonatomic, assign) CNPPopupStyle popupStyle;

@property (nonatomic, assign) CNPPopupPresentationStyle presentationStyle;

@property (nonatomic, assign) CNPPopupMaskType maskType;

@property (nonatomic, assign) BOOL dismissesOppositeDirection;

@property (nonatomic, assign) BOOL shouldDismissOnBackgroundTouch;

@property (nonatomic, assign) BOOL movesAboveKeyboard;

@property (nonatomic, assign) CGFloat contentVerticalPadding;

@property (nonatomic, assign) CGFloat maxPopupWidth;

@property (nonatomic, assign) CGFloat animationDuration;
