Now integrated with the well known JVFloatLabeledTextField.

Forms design

How to get started


  • Xcode4 and above
  • iOS 6.0 or above



  • BPFormViewController


  • BPFormCell implements BPFormCellProtocol
    • BPFormInputCell - "abstract class" and base class for all input cells
      • BPFormInputTextFieldCell uses BPFormTextField
        • BPFormFloatInputTextFieldCell uses BPFormFloatLabelTextField
      • BPFormInputTextViewCell uses BPFormTextView
        • BPFormFloatInputTextViewCell uses BPFormFloatLabelTextView
    • BPFormButtonCell
  • BPFormInfoCell implements BPFormCellProtocol


  • BPAppearance

Class Diagram

Check the detailed class diagram.



Go to /Example, run pod install, and run the target from BPFormsExample.xcworkspace


For any form you create, you should subclass BPFormViewController or just instantiate it.

Create an input cell

You can create simple input cells (BPFormInputTextFieldCell) or input cells where the label floats above the text value (BPFormFloatInputTextFieldCell - see screenshot).

Just set the properties you need and make sure you set the BPFormViewController instance as delegate for the textField. shouldChangeBlock is used to verify the data entered, so please add the verification code (see example).

BPFormFloatInputTextFieldCell *emailCell = [[BPFormFloatInputTextFieldCell alloc] init];
emailCell.textField.placeholder = @"Email";
emailCell.textField.delegate = self;
emailCell.customCellHeight = 50.0f;
emailCell.mandatory = YES;
emailCell.shouldChangeTextBlock =
            @"The email should look like [email protected]");

Create a button cell

BPFormButtonCell *signUpCell = [[BPFormButtonCell alloc] init];
signUpCell.button.backgroundColor = [UIColor blueColor];
[signUpCell.button setTitle:@"Sign Up" forState:UIControlStateNormal];
signUpCell.button.layer.cornerRadius = 4.0;
signUpCell.button.layer.masksToBounds = YES;
signUpCell.buttonActionBlock = ^(void){
    NSLog(@"Button pressed");

Add all the cells to the form controller

  • keep in mind formCells contains an array of sections, each sections with its cells
self.formCells = @[@[emailCell, passwordCell, password2Cell, nameCell, phoneCell], @[signUpCell]];

Add section header or footer

[self setHeaderTitle:@"Please enter your credentials" forSection:0];
[self setFooterTitle:@"When you're done, press <<Sign Up>>" forSection:0];

Tweak appearance

  • use the BPAppearance class to customize the way the forms look
// fonts
[BPAppearance sharedInstance].infoCellLabelFont = [UIFont systemFontOfSize:12];

// colors
[BPAppearance sharedInstance].headerFooterLabelTextColor = [UIColor lightGray];

// sizes
[BPAppearance sharedInstance].infoCellHeight = 25;
