A flow layout for UICollectionView that implements swiping-to-select gestures.


Panning to select

Just touch down and pan and select items in your UICollectionView, much easier than tapping each item

Auto-select rows

If you choose you can enable auto-selecting rows, where if you pan to select an entire row you can continue panning down to select whole rows at a time.

Pan to deselect

Along with panning to select collection view cells, you can choose to enable panning to deselect, where if you start panning from a selected cell, the panning will deselect cells.

Auto select cells between touches

If you choose you can enable auto selection of cells between a first and second touch. Where all cells between the two touches will be selected.


The example use case (as seen in the gifs) is using SECollectionViewFlowLayout in combination with QBImagePickerController to select multiple photos from a UIImagePickerController clone. You can use this image picker in your project by adding to your podfile:

pod 'SEQBImagePickerController' 


You can also use SECollectionViewFlowLayout in your project and use it with your own UICollectionView.

pod 'SECollectionViewFlowLayout' 


When initializing your UICollectionViewController using initWithCollectionViewLayout, allocate a new SECollectionViewFlowLayout

UICollectionViewController *collectionViewController = 
[[UICollectionViewController alloc] initWithCollectionViewLayout:
[SECollectionViewFlowLayout layoutWithAutoSelectRows:YES
