UIAlertView Customization in iOS 5

Hi Experts,

I have an app which is developed using iOS 5. I have done customization for UIAlertView. I my app, the screen appears as below:

iOS 5 Screen
Now, If I run this app on iOS 7 device the screen appears as below:

Many things happened with my apps on iOS 7.
Probably this custom combo box "does not support iOS 7". :)

You can make your own view controller instead of the UIAlertView. That will be the fastest fix.
This view controller should cover the whole screen, put on it a view with 2 buttons, a label and put a standard picker instead of the combo box.

Hi,

Sorry for delay,

I know about using UIPickerView.

But my client wants the same UI mentioned here in the image.

So, I can't use Picker View.

Now I want to create new control which look and work like Alert View.

Can you please guide me to start it.

If you already this combo box from the first screenshot, so just add a new view controller, make its background transparent (or semitransparent changing the alpha), add a view, two buttons and so on. Add a delegate (or use blocks) and you will know which button was pressed by user.
Here is a short tutorial:

You can find UIAlertView replacement on github. For example:
