Conform to IGCMenuDelegate

 @interface ViewController : UIViewController<IGCMenuDelegate>

Create Instance Variable

Create instance variable of type IGCMenu.

@implementation ViewController{
    IGCMenu *igcMenu;

Create instance of class IGCMenu and configure attributes

if (igcMenu == nil) {
      igcMenu = [[IGCMenu alloc] init];
  igcMenu.menuButton = self.menuButton;   //Pass refernce of menu button
  igcMenu.menuSuperView = self.view;      //Pass reference of menu button super view
  igcMenu.disableBackground = YES;        //Enable/disable menu background
  igcMenu.numberOfMenuItem = 5;           //Number of menu items to display

  //Menu background. It can be BlurEffectExtraLight,BlurEffectLight,BlurEffectDark,Dark or None
  igcMenu.backgroundType = BlurEffectDark;

/* Optional
Pass name of menu items
  igcMenu.menuItemsNameArray = [NSArray arrayWithObjects:@"Home",@"Like",@"Search",@"User",@"Buy",nil];

Pass color of menu items
UIColor *homeBackgroundColor = [UIColor colorWithRed:(33/255.0) green:(180/255.0) blue:(227/255.0) alpha:1.0];
UIColor *searchBackgroundColor = [UIColor colorWithRed:(139/255.0) green:(116/255.0) blue:(240/255.0) alpha:1.0];

igcMenu.delegate = self;

Array of name,color and icons will appear in the same order.

Show/Hide menu

On menu button press you can show/hide menu items by calling methods below.

To show/hide circular menu

[igcMenu showCircularMenu];  //Show circular menu
[igcMenu hideCircularMenu];  //Hide circular menu

[igcMenu showGridMenu];     //Show grid menu

//Perform any action on selection of menu item

On selecting any menu item it gives selected menu item name(if present otherwise nil) and index of menu item.Index of menu item start from 0.


@property (nonatomic) NSInteger numberOfMenuItem;   //Number of menu items to show
@property (nonatomic) CGFloat menuRadius;           //Radius for circular menu
@property (weak,nonatomic) UIButton *menuButton;    //Menu button reference
@property (weak,nonatomic) UIView *menuSuperView;   //Menu button super view reference
@property (strong,nonatomic) NSArray *menuItemsNameArray;        //Menu items name array,it can be empty
@property (strong,nonatomic) NSArray *menuBackgroundColorsArray; //Menu items background color,it can be empty, default color is white
@property (strong,nonatomic) NSArray *menuImagesNameArray;       //Menu item icons array it can be empty
@property (nonatomic) BOOL disableBackground;       //Disable background view, default is TRUE
@property int maxColumn;                            //Maximium number of column,default is 3
@property int menuHeight;                           //height = width ,default is 65
@property UIColor *menuTitleColor;                  // Menu title color, default is white
@property UIFont *menuTitleFont;                    // Menu title font, default is system regular 12
Set menu background.It can be BlurEffectExtraLight,BlurEffectLight,BlurEffectDark,Dark or None.
Default is BlurEffectDark.
@property IGCMenuBackgroundOptions backgroundType;


This library does not customise menu button(in example at bottom in dark blue background color) like making round,setting background color,changing icon like + and x. This is left on you to customise.You can take refernce form example if any help needed. Code to make button circle is:

self.menuButton.clipsToBounds = YES;
self.menuButton.layer.cornerRadius = self.menuButton.frame.size.height/2;

Let us know!

We will be happy if you sent us links to your projects where you use our library. And do let us know if you have any questions or suggestion regarding anything.
