Please welcome: ActionSheetPicker-3.0!

pod 'ActionSheetPicker-3.0', '~> 2.1.0' (iOS 5.1.1-9.x compatible!)

ActionSheetPicker = UIPickerView + UIActionSheet


Well, that's how it started. Now, the following is more accurate:

  • iPhone/iPod ActionSheetPicker = ActionSheetPicker = A Picker + UIActionSheet
  • iPad ActionSheetPicker = A Picker + UIPopoverController


Easily present an ActionSheet with a PickerView, allowing user to select from a number of immutable options.


  • Spawn pickers with convenience function - delegate or reference not required. Just provide a target/action callback.
  • Add buttons to UIToolbar for quick selection (see ActionSheetDatePicker below)
  • Delegate protocol available for more control
  • Universal (iPhone/iPod/iPad)


There are 4 distinct picker view options: ActionSheetStringPicker, ActionSheetDistancePicker, ActionSheetDatePicker, and ActionSheetCustomPicker. We'll focus here on how to use the ActionSheetStringPicker since it's most likely the one you want to use.

Basic Usage

For detailed info about customisations, please look BASIC USAGE

  • custom buttons view
  • custom buttons callbacks
  • Action by clicking outside of the picker
  • Other customisations

For detailed examples, please check Example Projects in this repo.

// Inside a IBAction method:

// Create an array of strings you want to show in the picker:
NSArray *colors = [NSArray arrayWithObjects:@"Red", @"Green", @"Blue", @"Orange", nil];

[ActionSheetStringPicker showPickerWithTitle:@"Select a Color"
                                   doneBlock:^(ActionSheetStringPicker *picker, NSInteger selectedIndex, id selectedValue) {
                                      NSLog(@"Picker: %@, Index: %@, value: %@", 
                                      picker, selectedIndex, selectedValue);
                                 cancelBlock:^(ActionSheetStringPicker *picker) {
                                      NSLog(@"Block Picker Canceled");
// You can also use self.view if you don't have a sender


Import to project

To import pod you should add string:

  • For Obj-c projects:

    #import "ActionSheetPicker.h"
  • For Swift projects:

    import ActionSheetPicker_3_0


If you prefer not to use either of the aforementioned dependency managers, you can integrate ActionSheetPicker-3.0 into your project manually.

The "old school" way is manually add to your project all from Pickers folder.

Embedded Framework

  • Add ActionSheetPicker-3.0 as a submodule by opening the Terminal, cd-ing into your top-level project directory, and entering the following command:
$ git submodule add
  • Open the ActionSheetPicker-3.0 folder, and drag CoreActionSheetPicker.xcodeproj into the file navigator of your app project.
  • In Xcode, navigate to the target configuration window by clicking on the blue project icon, and selecting the application target under the "Targets" heading in the sidebar.
  • Ensure that the deployment target of CoreActionSheetPicker.framework matches that of the application target.
  • In the tab bar at the top of that window, open the "Build Phases" panel.
  • Expand the "Target Dependencies" group, and add CoreActionSheetPicker.framework.
  • Click on the + button at the top left of the panel and select "New Copy Files Phase". Rename this new phase to "Copy Frameworks", set the "Destination" to "Frameworks", and add CoreActionSheetPicker.framework.

Example Projects

open ActionSheetPicker-3.0.xcworkspace

Here is 4 projects:

  • CoreActionSheetPicker - all picker files combined in one Framework. (available since iOS 8)
  • ActionSheetPicker - modern and descriptive Obj-C project with many examples.
  • Swift-Example - example, written on Swift. (only with basic 3 Pickers examples, for all examples please run ActionSheetPicker project)
  • ActionSheetPicker-iOS6-7 - iOS 6 and 7 comparable project. or to run only this project open Example-for-and-6/ActionSheetPicker.xcodeproj

Maintainer and Contributor

  • Petr Korolev (update to iOS 7 and iOS 8, implementing new pickers, community support)


  • ActionSheetPicker was originally created by Tim Cinel (@TimCinel) Since the Tim's repo is not support iOS 7+, I forked from his repo and implement iOS 7-8 support, and also bunch of UI fixes, crash-fixes and different customisation abilities.

  • And most of all, thanks to ActionSheetPicker-3.0's growing list of contributors.
