iOS Question

add UIPagerControl inside a UITableViewCell's imageView

inside my tableView's Cell i have a ImageView and there i wanna insert a UIPageControll so that i can add multiple images in my ImageView and scroll through it like this :

enter image description here

this is what i tried (and got stuck ) :


class EventsTableViewCell: UITableViewCell {
@IBOutlet var coverView: UIView!
@IBOutlet var pageController: UIPageControl!
@IBOutlet var imgView: UIImageView!

let swipeGestureLeft = UISwipeGestureRecognizer()
let swipeGestureRight = UISwipeGestureRecognizer()
...................... ...........


///// inside cellforRowAtIndexPath


PagerController = cell.pageController
swipeGestureLeft = cell.swipeGestureLeft
swipeGestureRight = cell.swipeGestureRight
coverView = cell.coverView

// set gesture direction
self.swipeGestureLeft.direction = UISwipeGestureRecognizerDirection.Left
self.swipeGestureRight.direction = UISwipeGestureRecognizerDirection.Right
// add gesture in to view


// add gesture target
self.swipeGestureLeft.addTarget(self, action: #selector(self.handleSwipeLeft(_:)))
self.swipeGestureRight.addTarget(self, action: #selector(self.handleSwipeRight(_:)))


// functions for recognising the Gestures
func handleSwipeLeft(gesture: UISwipeGestureRecognizer){
if self.PagerController.currentPage != 2 {

print("left :\(self.PagerController.currentPage) ")

self.PagerController.currentPage += 1

imgView.image = UIImage(named: "cover\(self.PagerController.currentPage)")

func handleSwipeRight(gesture: UISwipeGestureRecognizer){

if self.PagerController.currentPage != 0 {

print("right :\(self.PagerController.currentPage)")

imgView.image = UIImage(named: "cover\(self.PagerController.currentPage)")

self.PagerController.currentPage -= 1


you can see that am able to recognise the gesture over my
which is an UIView covering the ImageView and am also able to call this functions but now how am gonna change the image ?? any clue or guidance will be so helpful for me

P.s if my question is not clear enough then please let me know i'll add some details


On your cellForRowAt index add this code

cell.imgView.userInteractionEnable = true

Hope this will help you.
