UIMenuItem with Image Support

screenshot of UIMenuItem with image

UIMenuItem uses UILabel to display its title, that means we can swizzle -drawTextInRect: to support image.

UIMenuItem+CXAImageSupport is a dirty hack but should be safe in most cases. Contains no any private API.

Make a category instead of subclassing UIMenuItem gains more flexibility. Yes, this category can be applied to the awesome PSMenuItem too!

How to use

Add UIMenuItem+CXAImageSupport.{h,m} to your project.

The method names describe all. Default draws shadow as the text title. If you want to hide shadow, set hidesShadow to YES.

- (id)cxa_initWithTitle:(NSString *)title action:(SEL)action image:(UIImage *)image;
- (id)cxa_initWithTitle:(NSString *)title action:(SEL)action image:(UIImage *)image hidesShadow:(BOOL)hidesShadow;
- (void)cxa_setImage:(UIImage *)image forTitle:(NSString *)title;
- (void)cxa_setImage:(UIImage *)image hidesShadow:(BOOL)hidesShadow forTitle:(NSString *)title;


UIMenuItem+CXAImageSupport uses UIMenuItem's title to map related image since there is no any other clue of UIMenuItem I can find to connect to UILabel. You can't set different images for the same title.
