Popup Custom View in UIKit

In UIKit, popup mainly can be:

The following will demonstrate how to present a custom view/viewController by  creating a custom popup by subclassing a UIViewController and presenting it modally.

Here is an example of how to create a custom popup in UIKit:

// custom popup viewcontroller
class PopupViewController: UIViewController {
  var dismissHandler: (() -> Void)?

  override func viewDidLoad() {

    // Customize the appearance of the view here
    view.backgroundColor = .white

  @IBAction func dismissButtonTapped(_ sender: Any) {
    dismiss(animated: true, completion: nil)

// How to use
class ViewController: UIViewController {
  @IBAction func showPopupButtonTapped(_ sender: Any) {
    let popup = PopupViewController()
    popup.dismissHandler = {
      // Update the UI or perform any other actions when the popup is dismissed
    present(popup, animated: true, completion: nil)

In this example, the PopupViewController is a UIViewController subclass that represents the content of the popup. It has a dismissHandler property that is used to update the UI or perform any other actions when the popup is dismissed.

The ViewController class has a showPopupButtonTapped action method that is called when the button is tapped. It creates an instance of the PopupViewController and presents it modally.

To dismiss the popup, the dismiss(_:animated:completion:) method is called on the PopupViewController. The dismissHandler closure is executed before the popup is dismissed, and the popup is removed from the view hierarchy.

You can customize the appearance and behavior of the popup by adding additional views or controls to the PopupViewController, or by using a custom modal presentation style.
