This is a quick tip that will show you how to show hide Navigation Bar when tap in iOS occurs. This is a great method if you want to benefit from every pixel of the screen real estate. So I suggest you do it when you have a view that will display images in fullscreen. An example is when you want to show hide Navigation Bar when the user taps the screen.
A lot of top apps use the show hide Navigation Bar, mainly when opening an image. Twitter, Facebook, eBay and a plethora of famous apps are using this technique. Why not you?
I will show you how in these simple steps in the following code.
Code for show/hide Navigation Bar
UITapGestureRecognizer *tapGesture =
[[UITapGestureRecognizer alloc] initWithTarget:self action:@selector(showHideNavbar:)];
-(void) showHideNavbar:(id) sender
if (self.navigationController.navigationBar.hidden == NO)
[self.navigationController setNavigationBarHidden:YES animated:YES];
else if (self.navigationController.navigationBar.hidden == YES)
[self.navigationController setNavigationBarHidden:NO animated:YES];
That’s all guys, now you got another tool that will make your app look cooler and more functional.
