Question or problem in the Swift programming language:
I’m trying to present the photo library, in a popover, on an iPad with iOS 9 beta 4 and Swift. The preferred way is through a popover, but UIPopoverController is now deprecated. Apparently it’s now done through UIViewController, but there is no documentation, or sample code out there that I could find. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
How to solve the problem:
The above answer is almost correct except that the anchor in the
popoverPresentationController must be set prior to calling
let myPicker = UIImagePickerController() myPicker.delegate = self myPicker.sourceType = .PhotoLibrary myPicker.modalPresentationStyle = .Popover let ppc = myPicker.popoverPresentationController ppc?.barButtonItem = sender as? UIBarButtonItem ppc?.permittedArrowDirection = .Any presentViewController(myPicker, animated: true, completion: nil)
I haven’t entered into delegation and handling of the image picker responses here, the purpose of this post has simply been to consider the use of UIImagePickerController without resorting to deprecated classes and methods.
let myPicker = UIImagePickerController() myPicker.sourceType = UIImagePickerControllerSourceType.PhotoLibrary myPicker.modalPresentationStyle = UIModalPresentationStyle.Popover self.presentViewController(myPicker, animated: true, completion: nil) let popper = myPicker.popoverPresentationController // returns a UIPopoverPresentationController popper?.barButtonItem = sender as? UIBarButtonItem
please Correct if needed
simply added imagePicker.delegate = self in the function that calls up the imagepicker
