How do you add a navigation bar to a view controller (collection view controller, actually) that is not embedded in a navigation controller? I tried dragging a Navigation Bar onto the view, but it's just not sticking. This is in Swift.
Try putting this code in your
let navbar = UINavigationBar(frame: CGRect(x: 0, y: 0, width: UIScreen.mainScreen().bounds.width, height: 75)) navbar.backgroundColor = UIColor.whiteColor() navbar.delegate = self let navItem = UINavigationItem() navItem.title = "Title" navItem.leftBarButtonItem = UIBarButtonItem(title: "Left Button", style: .Plain, target: self, action: nil) navItem.rightBarButtonItem = UIBarButtonItem(title: "Left Button", style: .Plain, target: self, action: nil) navbar.items = [navItem] view.addSubview(navbar)
height can, of course, be anything you want. And the actions for the
UIBarButtons are selectors to whatever function you want. (You also don't need to have buttons at all).
