Implementing iOS Container View To Create Reusable Components In iPhone App

Recently, one of our clients from Florida called us asking about iOS container view controller. Our development team walked him through the steps and explained how an iOS container view can help developers to create custom container and reusable components for their iphone app development.

The container view controllers provide a way to developers to combine the content from multiple iOS view controllers in a single user interface of iOS app. In fact, the custom container can be easily edited with editor of XCode. And in today’s iOS app tutorial, we’ll be sharing the implementation process which our expert app development team follow with demonstration.

Let’s Get Started

Create a new project under file menu.


Select Single View Application in the next tab.


Enter the project details.


Once you create a new project, go to Main.storyboard.

Add Navigation controller and ViewController as rootviewcontroller.

Now, add one controller in storyboard.


Add a new class file “FirstVC” and set it to ViewController in storyboard.



Drag a new iOS container view into your view controllers view in your storyboard, it will automatically add a new embedded VC.



You can change embedded VC manually. For that, remove existing embedded VC and drag from container view to ViewController and select embed segue.




Set auto layout for container view.


And done!

However, this solution is pretty simple, but it comes with a cost of memory usage. And if not implemented right, it could consume much memory. But for the best results, you could consult with professional developer or hire iphone app developer to implement the iOS container view efficiently and successfully.
