App anatomy and life cycle

  1. 1. Unit 4—Lesson 2: App Anatomy and Life Cycle
  2. 2. App life cycle Not running Inactive Active Background Suspended Foreground Background
  3. 3. Break down the delegate Did Finish Launching Will Resign Active Did Enter Background Will Enter Foreground Did Become Active Will Terminate
  4. 4. Did Finish Launching UIApplicationDelegate protocol methods App has finished launching func application(_ application: UIApplication, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [UIApplicationLaunchOptionsKey: Any]?) -> Bool { return true } Override point for customization after app launch
  5. 5. Will Resign Active UIApplicationDelegate protocol methods App is about to move from active to inactive state func applicationWillResignActive(_ application: UIApplication) { } Can occur for certain types of temporary interruptions (such as an incoming phone call or SMS message) Can occur when the user quits the app and it begins the transition to the 
 background state Use to pause ongoing tasks, disable timers, and invalidate graphics rendering callbacks
  6. 6. Did Enter Background UIApplicationDelegate protocol methods App is about to move from active to inactive state func applicationDidEnterBackground(_ application: UIApplication) { } Use to release shared resources, save user data, invalidate timers, and store enough application state information to restore your application to its current state in case it’s terminated later If your application supports background execution, this method is called instead of applicationWillTerminate: when the user quits
  7. 7. Will Enter Foreground UIApplicationDelegate protocol methods Called immediately before the applicationDidBecomeActive function func applicationWillEnterForeground(_ application: UIApplication) { } Called as part of transition from the background to the active state Can be used to undo many of the changes made on entering the background
  8. 8. Did Become Active UIApplicationDelegate protocol methods App was launched by the user or system func applicationDidBecomeActive(_ application: UIApplication) { } Restart any tasks that were paused (or not yet started) while the app was inactive If the app was previously in the background, optionally refresh the user interface
  9. 9. Will Terminate UIApplicationDelegate protocol methods App is about to be terminated func applicationWillTerminate(_ application: UIApplication) { } Save data if appropriate See also applicationDidEnterBackground:
  10. 10. Which methods should I use? Start with the methods that will run when launching, reopening, or closing 
 your app • applicationDidFinishLaunchingWithOptions • applicationWillResignActive • applicationDidBecomeActive Take advantage of the other three delegate methods as you become more experienced
  11. 11. App Anatomy and Life Cycle Unit 4—Lesson 2 Learn more about the different life cycle states and the delegate hooks for executing logic as the app moves through each state.
  12. 12. Lab: App Event Count Unit 4—Lesson 2 Create an app that provides a visual representation of the app life cycle. Your app will update labels on the view when different delegate methods are called.
