Build Status

While developing iOS apps, we often run into issues where the iPhone keyboard slides up and covers the UITextField/UITextView. IQKeyboardManager allows you to prevent this issue of keyboard sliding up and covering UITextField/UITextView without needing you to write any code or make any additional setup. To use IQKeyboardManager you simply need to add source files to your project.

Key Features

  1. **CODELESS**, Zero Lines of Code

  2. Works Automatically

  3. No More UIScrollView

  4. No More Subclasses

  5. No More Manual Work

  6. No More #imports

IQKeyboardManager works on all orientations, and with the toolbar. It also has nice optional features allowing you to customize the distance from the text field, behaviour of previous, next and done buttons in the keyboard toolbar, play sound when the user navigates through the form and more.

Warning

  • If you're planning to build SDK/library/framework and want to handle UITextField/UITextView with IQKeyboardManager then you're totally going the wrong way. I would never suggest to add IQKeyboardManager as dependency/adding/shipping with any third-party library. Instead of adding IQKeyboardManager you should implement your own solution to achieve same kind of results. IQKeyboardManager is totally designed for projects to help developers for their convenience, it's not designed for adding/dependency/shipping with any third-party library, because doing this could block adoption by other developers for their projects as well (who are not using IQKeyboardManager and have implemented their custom solution to handle UITextField/UITextView in the project).
  • If IQKeyboardManager conflicts with other third-party library, then it's developer responsibility to enable/disable IQKeyboardManager when presenting/dismissing third-party library UI. Third-party libraries are not responsible to handle IQKeyboardManager.

Installation

Installation with CocoaPods

CocoaPods

IQKeyboardManager (Objective-C): IQKeyboardManager is available through CocoaPods. To install it, simply add the following line to your Podfile: (#9)

pod 'IQKeyboardManager' #iOS8 and later

pod 'IQKeyboardManager', '3.3.7' #iOS7

IQKeyboardManager (Swift): IQKeyboardManagerSwift is available through CocoaPods. To install it, simply add the following line to your Podfile: (#236)

Swift 5.0,4.2, 4.0, 3.2, 3.0 (Xcode 10.2)

pod 'IQKeyboardManagerSwift'

Or you can choose the version you need based on Swift support table from Requirements

pod 'IQKeyboardManagerSwift', '6.3.0'

In AppDelegate.swift, just import IQKeyboardManagerSwift framework and enable IQKeyboardManager.

import IQKeyboardManagerSwift

@UIApplicationMain
class AppDelegate: UIResponder, UIApplicationDelegate {

    var window: UIWindow?

    func application(application: UIApplication, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [NSObject: AnyObject]?) -> Bool {

      IQKeyboardManager.shared.enable = true

      return true
    }
}

Installation with Carthage

Carthage is a decentralized dependency manager that builds your dependencies and provides you with binary frameworks.

You can install Carthage with Homebrew using the following command:

$ brew update
$ brew install carthage

To integrate IQKeyboardManger or IQKeyboardManagerSwift into your Xcode project using Carthage, add the following line to your Cartfile:

github "hackiftekhar/IQKeyboardManager"

Run carthage to build the frameworks and drag the appropriate framework (IQKeyboardManager.framework or IQKeyboardManagerSwift.framework) into your Xcode project based on your need. Make sure to add only one framework and not both.

Installation with Source Code

Github tag

IQKeyboardManager (Objective-C): Just drag and drop IQKeyboardManager directory from demo project to your project. That's it.

IQKeyboardManager (Swift): Drag and drop IQKeyboardManagerSwift directory from demo project to your project

In AppDelegate.swift, just enable IQKeyboardManager.

@UIApplicationMain
class AppDelegate: UIResponder, UIApplicationDelegate {

    var window: UIWindow?

    func application(application: UIApplication, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [NSObject: AnyObject]?) -> Bool {

      IQKeyboardManager.shared.enable = true

      return true
    }
}
