Add Badge Value to UIButton & UIBarButton Swift 4 - iOS

Badge is for showing the count, for example for showing the number of unread notifications.
Notification with Badge swift ios

Step 1:

Firstly create new swift file and add a subclass to UIButton as follow:

import UIKit

class SSBadgeButton: UIButton {
    
    var badgeLabel = UILabel()
    
    var badge: String? {
        didSet {
            addBadgeToButon(badge: badge)
        }
    }

    public var badgeBackgroundColor = UIColor.red {
        didSet {
            badgeLabel.backgroundColor = badgeBackgroundColor
        }
    }
    
    public var badgeTextColor = UIColor.white {
        didSet {
            badgeLabel.textColor = badgeTextColor
        }
    }
    
    public var badgeFont = UIFont.systemFont(ofSize: 12.0) {
        didSet {
            badgeLabel.font = badgeFont
        }
    }
    
    public var badgeEdgeInsets: UIEdgeInsets? {
        didSet {
            addBadgeToButon(badge: badge)
        }
    }
    
    override init(frame: CGRect) {
        super.init(frame: frame)
        addBadgeToButon(badge: nil)
    }
    
    func addBadgeToButon(badge: String?) {
        badgeLabel.text = badge
        badgeLabel.textColor = badgeTextColor
        badgeLabel.backgroundColor = badgeBackgroundColor
        badgeLabel.font = badgeFont
        badgeLabel.sizeToFit()
        badgeLabel.textAlignment = .center
        let badgeSize = badgeLabel.frame.size
        
        let height = max(18, Double(badgeSize.height) + 5.0)
        let width = max(height, Double(badgeSize.width) + 10.0)
        
        var vertical: Double?, horizontal: Double?
        if let badgeInset = self.badgeEdgeInsets {
            vertical = Double(badgeInset.top) - Double(badgeInset.bottom)
            horizontal = Double(badgeInset.left) - Double(badgeInset.right)
            
            let x = (Double(bounds.size.width) - 10 + horizontal!)
            let y = -(Double(badgeSize.height) / 2) - 10 + vertical!
            badgeLabel.frame = CGRect(x: x, y: y, width: width, height: height)
        } else {
            let x = self.frame.width - CGFloat((width / 2.0))
            let y = CGFloat(-(height / 2.0))
            badgeLabel.frame = CGRect(x: x, y: y, width: CGFloat(width), height: CGFloat(height))
        }
        
        badgeLabel.layer.cornerRadius = badgeLabel.frame.height/2
        badgeLabel.layer.masksToBounds = true
        addSubview(badgeLabel)
        badgeLabel.isHidden = badge != nil ? false : true
    }
    
    required init?(coder aDecoder: NSCoder) {
        super.init(coder: aDecoder)
        self.addBadgeToButon(badge: nil)
        fatalError("init(coder:) has not been implemented")
    }
}

Step 2:

Finally open ViewController.swift file then add a button as follow:

To UIButton:

let notificationButton = SSBadgeButton()
notificationButton.frame = CGRect(x: view.frame.width/2 - 22, y: view.frame.height/2 - 22, width: 44, height: 44)
notificationButton.setImage(UIImage(named: "Notification")?.withRenderingMode(.alwaysTemplate), for: .normal)
notificationButton.badgeEdgeInsets = UIEdgeInsets(top: 20, left: 0, bottom: 0, right: 15)
notificationButton.badge = "4"
view.addSubview(notificationButton)

To UIBarButton:

let notificationButton = SSBadgeButton()
notificationButton.frame = CGRect(x: 0, y: 0, width: 44, height: 44)
notificationButton.setImage(UIImage(named: "Notification")?.withRenderingMode(.alwaysTemplate), for: .normal)
notificationButton.badgeEdgeInsets = UIEdgeInsets(top: 20, left: 0, bottom: 0, right: 15)
notificationButton.badge = "4"

self.navigationItem.rightBarButtonItem = UIBarButtonItem(customView: notificationButton)

Build and Run we will see output as follow:
