A stepper control with flexible UI and tailored UX.

What's New

Version 2.5.3


Adds support for Swift Package Manager (#18).


Version Carthage Documentation Platform License

KWStepper is a stepper control written in Swift. Unlike UIStepper, KWStepper allows for a fully customized UI and provides callbacks for tailoring the UX.

KWStepper was initially created in Objective-C for Addo Label's Counters• and is now available in Swift for you to enjoy 😁


  • Allows for a fully customized UI.
  • Provides properties for setting different decrement and increment steps.
  • Offers optional callbacks for responding to control events and tailoring the UX.
  • Supports method chaining for easier configuration and event handling.



KWStepper is available through CocoaPods. To install it, simply add the following lines to your Podfile:

pod 'KWStepper'


To integrate KWStepper using Carthage, add the following line to you Cartfile:

github "kyleweiner/KWStepper"

Swift Package Manager

To add KWStepper to your Xcode project via Swift Package Manager, select File → Swift Packages → Add Package Dependency… and enter the URL for this this repository.


If you prefer not to use a dependency manager, simply copy the source files into your project.


Try the example project!

var stepper: KWStepper!

@IBOutlet weak var countLabel: UILabel!
@IBOutlet weak var decrementButton: UIButton!
@IBOutlet weak var incrementButton: UIButton!
stepper = KWStepper(decrementButton: decrementButton, incrementButton: incrementButton)

Respond to control events using the valueChangedCallback property.

stepper.valueChangedCallback = { stepper in
    self.countLabel.text = String(stepper.value)

Or, use the target-action pattern.

stepper.addTarget(self, action: #selector(stepperDidChange), for: .valueChanged)

Configuring KWStepper

With the exception of the continuous property, KWStepper offers everything provided by UIStepper and more.

stepper.autoRepeat = true
stepper.autoRepeatInterval = 0.10
stepper.wraps = true
stepper.minimumValue = 0
stepper.maximumValue = 8
stepper.value = 0
stepper.incrementStepValue = 1
stepper.decrementStepValue = 1

Method chaining is also supported:

    .valueChanged { stepper in
        // ...

If necessary, the rounding behavior for incrementing and decrementing may be modified via roundingBehavior.


Adopting KWStepperDelegate provides the following optional delegate methods for tailoring the UX.

  • optional func KWStepperDidDecrement()
  • optional func KWStepperDidIncrement()
  • optional func KWStepperMaxValueClamped()
  • optional func KWStepperMinValueClamped()
  • optional func KWStepperDidEndLongPress()


KWStepper provides the following callbacks:

  • valueChangedCallback
  • decrementCallback
  • incrementCallback
  • maxValueClampedCallback
  • minValueClampedCallback
  • longPressEndedCallback

Method chaining is supported for callbacks too:

    .valueChanged { _ in }
    .didDecrement { _ in }
    .didIncrement { _ in }
    .maxValueClamped { _ in }
    .minValueClamped { _ in }
    .longPressEnded { _ in }

// `maxValueClampedCallback` and `minValueClampedCallback` may be set simultaneously.
stepper.valueClamped { stepper in
    // ...

In the example project, valueChanged(_:) is used to update the count label text when the stepper value changes. valueClamped(:_) is used to present a UIAlertController when a limit is reached and the wraps property is set to false.
