BASequenceControl to complement UISegmentedControl

Wednesday, November 9th, 2011

I recently needed something like UISegmentedControl but with "direction" theme. As a result BaseAppKit got a new control—BASequenceControl. I've tried to mimic API of the UISegmentedControl and basically it's the same except that now I support only strings in segments.

It's customizable; you can provide these two images to completely change the theme of the control:

ba-sequence-item-passive.png


ba-sequence-item-active.png

As selected segment got changed the BASequenceControl sends UIControlEventValueChanged event just like the UISegmentedControl.
