  • Adding a parallax header to a UIScrollView is straightforward, e.g:
let headerView = UIImageView()
headerView.image = UIImage(named: "success-baby")
headerView.contentMode = .scaleAspectFit

let scrollView = UIScrollView()
scrollView.parallaxHeader.view = headerView
scrollView.parallaxHeader.height = 150
scrollView.parallaxHeader.mode = .fill
scrollView.parallaxHeader.minimumHeight = 20
UIImageView *headerView = [UIImageView new];
headerView.image = [UIImage imageNamed:@"success-baby"];
headerView.contentMode = UIViewContentModeScaleAspectFill;

UIScrollView *scrollView = [UIScrollView new]; 
scrollView.parallaxHeader.view = headerView;
scrollView.parallaxHeader.height = 150;
scrollView.parallaxHeader.mode = MXParallaxHeaderModeFill;
scrollView.parallaxHeader.minimumHeight = 20;
  • The MXScrollViewController is a container with a child view controller that can be added programmatically or using the custom segue MXScrollViewControllerSegue.

  • Please check examples for Swift implementations.
