Set image and title for bar button item?


You can create UIButton instance, set an image and a title for it, and then create your UIBarButtonItem with it:

    let button = UIButton(type: .System)    button.setImage(UIImage(named: "YourImage"), forState: .Normal)    button.setTitle("YourTitle", forState: .Normal)    button.sizeToFit()    self.leftBarButton = UIBarButtonItem(customView: button)

To add an action:

    button.addTarget(self, action: #selector(self.someAction), forControlEvents: .TouchUpInside)

where self.someAction is

func someAction() {}


Create an UIButton, set an image and a title for it and use it as a custom image to init your UIBarButtonItem(customView:) with it.

If you want the image to be on the right side of the button, you can set the button's semanticContentAttribute to .forceRightToLeft.

Swift 4 example:

let view = UIView()let button = UIButton(type: .system)button.semanticContentAttribute = .forceRightToLeftbutton.setImage(UIImage(named: "DocumentsIcon"), for: .normal)button.setTitle("Documents", for: .normal)button.addTarget(self, action: #selector(openDocuments), for: .touchUpInside)button.sizeToFit()view.addSubview(button)view.frame = button.boundsnavigationItem.rightBarButtonItem = UIBarButtonItem(customView: view)


Swift 3:

    let button = UIButton(type: .system)    button.setImage(UIImage(named: "categories_icon"), for: .normal)    button.setTitle("Categories", for: .normal)    button.addTarget(self, action: #selector(showCategories), for: .touchUpInside)    button.sizeToFit()    self.navigationItem.leftBarButtonItem = UIBarButtonItem(customView: button)
