PanModal was designed to be used effortlessly. Simply call presentPanModal in the same way you would expect to present a UIViewController


The presented view controller must conform to PanModalPresentable to take advantage of the customizable options

extension YourViewController: PanModalPresentable {

    var panScrollable: UIScrollView? {
        return nil


If the presented view controller has an embedded UIScrollView e.g. as is the case with UITableViewController, panModal will seamlessly transition pan gestures between the modal and the scroll view

class TableViewController: UITableViewController, PanModalPresentable {

    var panScrollable: UIScrollView? {
        return tableView

Adjusting Heights

Height values of the panModal can be adjusted by overriding shortFormHeight or longFormHeight

var shortFormHeight: PanModalHeight {
    return .contentHeight(300)

var longFormHeight: PanModalHeight {
    return .maxHeightWithTopInset(40)

Updates at Runtime

Values are stored during presentation, so when adjusting at runtime you should call panModalSetNeedsLayoutUpdate()

func viewDidLoad() {
    hasLoaded = true

    panModalTransition(to: .shortForm)

var shortFormHeight: PanModalHeight {
    if hasLoaded {
        return .contentHeight(200)
    return .maxHeight

We're glad to be open sourcing this library. We use it in numerous places within the slack app and expect it to be easy to use as well as modify; we've added extensive documentation within the code to support that.

We will only be fixing critical bugs, thus, for any non-critical issues or feature requests we hope to be able to rely on the community using the library to add what they need. For more information, please read the contributing guidelines.
