The iPhone mockup available here.


  • iOS 8.0+
  • Swift 3.0


We recommend using CocoaPods to install our library.

Just put this in your Podfile:

pod 'RAMReel'

or Carthage users can simply add Mantle to their Cartfile: github "Ramotion/reel-search"


In order to use our control you need to implement the following:


Now you can use those types as generic parameters of type declaration of RAMReel:

RAMReel<CellClass, TextFieldClass, DataSource>


Next you need to create an instance of RAMReel, and for that you need the following:

  • frame: CGRect: Rect, specifying where you want to put the control.
  • dataSource: DataSource: the source of data for the reel.
  • placeholder: String (optional): Placeholder text; by default, an empty string is used.
  • hook: DataSource.ResultType -> Void (optional): Action to perform on element selection, nil by default. You can add additional hooks later, if you need multiple actions performed.

Let’s use it to create an instance of RAMReel:

let ramReel = RAMReel<CellClass, TextFieldClass, DataSource>(frame: frame, dataSource: dataSource, placeholder: placeholder, hook: hook)

Adding action hooks

To add extra actions you may append DataSource.ResultType -> Void functions to RAMReel object property hooks:

ramReel.hooks.append { data in
    // your code goes here

Putting on the view

And the final step, showing RAMReel on your view:

ramReel.view.autoresizingMask = [.FlexibleWidth, .FlexibleHeight]

If you have visual problems, try calling prepareForViewing before showing your view.

Like this:

override func viewDidLayoutSubviews() {


If you want to change RAMReel look and feel, you can use theming.

To do so, you just to have to implement the Theme protocol in your class/structure and set your RAMReel object’s theme property to your theme.

Or you can just use the predefined instance of type RAMTheme.

let textColor: UIColor
let listBackgroundColor: UIColor
let font: UIFont

let theme = RAMTheme(textColor: textColor, listBackgroundColor: listBackgroundColor, font: font)
