ActionSheet Example in Swift

In this short Swift code example we will turn UIAlertController into an ActionSheet with three buttons.

  • Create UIAlertController of preferredStyle Action
  • Create OK button of Default style
  • Create Cancel button of Cancel style
  • Create Delete button with “Destructive” style
  • Handle an Action for each button
  • Present Action Sheet to user
import UIKit

class ViewController: UIViewController  {

override func viewDidLoad() {

override func viewWillAppear(_ animated: Bool) {
    let alertController = UIAlertController(title: "Action Sheet", message: "What would you like to do?", preferredStyle: .actionSheet)
    let sendButton = UIAlertAction(title: "Send now", style: .default, handler: { (action) -> Void in
        print("Ok button tapped")
    let  deleteButton = UIAlertAction(title: "Delete forever", style: .destructive, handler: { (action) -> Void in
        print("Delete button tapped")
    let cancelButton = UIAlertAction(title: "Cancel", style: .cancel, handler: { (action) -> Void in
        print("Cancel button tapped")
    self.navigationController!.present(alertController, animated: true, completion: nil)
