Minimum iOS version

iOS 6.0


  1. Import with #import "PickerCells.h"
  2. Instantiate and setup PickerCellsController class.

    self.pickersController = [[PickerCellsController alloc] init];
    [self.pickersController attachToTableView:self.tableView tableViewsPriorDelegate:self withDelegate:self];
  3. Add UIPickerView and UIDatePicker instances with correspoding indexPaths

    UIPickerView *pickerView = [[UIPickerView alloc] init];
    pickerView.delegate = self;
    pickerView.dataSource = self;
    NSIndexPath *pickerIP = [NSIndexPath indexPathForRow:1 inSection:1];
    [self.pickersController addPickerView:pickerView forIndexPath:pickerIP];
    UIDatePicker *datePicker1 = [[UIDatePicker alloc] init];
    datePicker1.datePickerMode = UIDatePickerModeDate;
    datePicker1.date = [NSDate date];
    NSIndexPath *path1 = [NSIndexPath indexPathForRow:2 inSection:0];
    [self.pickersController addDatePicker:datePicker1 forIndexPath:path1];
  4. Check it out! Try pressing cells on specified indexPath's to see how pickers will expand underneath them.
  5. This class do not responsible for giving you information about picker selected values. You should do it by yourself. But you can get pickers from PickerCellsController object by using corresponding cells indexPaths:

    id picker = [self.pickersController pickerForOwnerCellIndexPath:indexPath];
    if ([picker isKindOfClass:UIDatePicker.class]) {
      UIDatePicker *datePicker = (UIDatePicker *)picker;
      NSDateFormatter *dateFormatter = [[NSDateFormatter alloc] init];
      [dateFormatter setDateFormat:@"dd-MM-yyyy"];
      cell.textLabel.text = [dateFormatter stringFromDate:[datePicker date]];
