Introduction

In this article I will create a Single view application. Here I use a single label from outlet. To implement the page view controller we add one more view and use a delegate and the data source method of the Page View Controller Class.

To understand it we use the following.

Step 1

Open XCode by double-clicking on it.

Step 2

Create a New XCode Project by clicking on it.

Step 3

Now Select Single View Application and click on Next.

Step 4

Now provide your Product Name and Company Identifier.

Step 5

Select the location where you want to save your project and click on Create.

Step 6 

Now here we write code:

@end

@implementation ViewController
@synthesize pageViewController;
@synthesize modelArray;

- (UIViewController *)pageViewController:(UIPageViewController *)pageViewController
viewControllerBeforeViewController:(UIViewController *)viewController
{
NSUInteger currentIndex = [self.modelArray indexOfObject:[(ContentViewController *)viewController labelContents]];
if(currentIndex == 0)
{
return nil;
}
ContentViewController *contentViewController = [[ContentViewController alloc] init];
contentViewController.labelContents = [self.modelArray objectAtIndex:currentIndex - 1];
return contentViewController;
}

- (UIViewController *)pageViewController:(UIPageViewController *)pageViewController
viewControllerAfterViewController:(UIViewController *)viewController
{
NSUInteger currentIndex = [self.modelArray indexOfObject:[(ContentViewController *)viewController labelContents]];
if(currentIndex == self.modelArray.count-1)
{
return nil;
}
ContentViewController *contentViewController = [[ContentViewController alloc] init];
contentViewController.labelContents = [self.modelArray objectAtIndex:currentIndex + 1];

return contentViewController;
}

#pragma mark - UIPageViewControllerDelegate Methods

- (UIPageViewControllerSpineLocation)pageViewController:(UIPageViewController *)pageViewController
spineLocationForInterfaceOrientation:(UIInterfaceOrientation)orientation
{
if(UIInterfaceOrientationIsPortrait(orientation))
{
//Set the array with only 1 view controller
UIViewController *currentViewController = [self.pageViewController.viewControllers objectAtIndex:0];
NSArray *viewControllers = [NSArray arrayWithObject:currentViewController];
[self.pageViewController setViewControllers:viewControllers direction:UIPageViewControllerNavigationDirectionForward animated:YES completion:NULL];

//Important- Set the doubleSided property to NO.
self.pageViewController.doubleSided = NO;
//Return the spine location
return UIPageViewControllerSpineLocationMin;
}
else
{
NSArray *viewControllers = nil;
ContentViewController *currentViewController = [self.pageViewController.viewControllers objectAtIndex:0];

NSUInteger currentIndex = [self.modelArray indexOfObject:[(ContentViewController *)currentViewController labelContents]];
if(currentIndex == 0 || currentIndex %2 == 0)
{
UIViewController *nextViewController = [self pageViewController:self.pageViewController viewControllerAfterViewController:currentViewController];
viewControllers = [NSArray arrayWithObjects:currentViewController, nextViewController, nil];
}
else
{
UIViewController *previousViewController = [self pageViewController:self.pageViewController viewControllerBeforeViewController:currentViewController];
viewControllers = [NSArray arrayWithObjects:previousViewController, currentViewController, nil];
}
//Now, set the viewControllers property of UIPageViewController
[self.pageViewController setViewControllers:viewControllers direction:UIPageViewControllerNavigationDirectionForward animated:YES completion:NULL];

return UIPageViewControllerSpineLocationMid;
}
}

#pragma mark - View lifecycle

- (void)viewDidLoad
{
[super viewDidLoad];

//Instantiate the model array
self.modelArray = [[NSMutableArray alloc] init];
for (int index = 1; index <= 12 ; index++)
{
[self.modelArray addObject:[NSString stringWithFormat:@"Page %d",index]];
}

//Step 1
//Instantiate the UIPageViewController.
self.pageViewController = [[UIPageViewController alloc] initWithTransitionStyle:UIPageViewControllerTransitionStylePageCurl
navigationOrientation:UIPageViewControllerNavigationOrientationHorizontal options:nil];

//Step 2:
//Assign the delegate and datasource as self.
self.pageViewController.delegate = self;
self.pageViewController.dataSource = self;

//Step 3:
//Set the initial view controllers.
ContentViewController *contentViewController = [[ContentViewController alloc] initWithNibName:@"ContentViewController" bundle:nil];
contentViewController.labelContents = [self.modelArray objectAtIndex:0];
NSArray *viewControllers = [NSArray arrayWithObject:contentViewController];
[self.pageViewController setViewControllers:viewControllers
direction:UIPageViewControllerNavigationDirectionForward
animated:NO
completion:nil];

//Step 4:
//ViewController containment steps
//Add the pageViewController as the childViewController
[self addChildViewController:self.pageViewController];

//Add the view of the pageViewController to the current view
[self.view addSubview:self.pageViewController.view];

//Call didMoveToParentViewController: of the childViewController, the UIPageViewController instance in our case.
[self.pageViewController didMoveToParentViewController:self];

//Step 5:
// set the pageViewController's frame as an inset rect.
CGRect pageViewRect = self.view.bounds;
pageViewRect = CGRectInset(pageViewRect, 40.0, 40.0);
self.pageViewController.view.frame = pageViewRect;

//Step 6:
//Assign the gestureRecognizers property of our pageViewController to our view's gestureRecognizers property.
self.view.gestureRecognizers = self.pageViewController.gestureRecognizers;
