UICollectionView in UITableView in swift

This sounds a little confusing. So In Simple world, I would like to tell you that. In this tutorial, I will explain to you that how you can use the collection view inside your UITableViewCell. And as you know this tutorial has been published in swift 5 programming language. So let’s begin with development. Please watch the complete video and understand how you could achieve your milestone.

Great 😊😊😊 So if you are looking for the important code which is related to this video. It is given below.

Product Class


class Product {
    var name : String?
    var sub_product : [Product] = [Product]()

Great. After that Add items into your list as given bellow!

ForLoop with items : UICollectionView in UITableView in swift


        for i in 0...9 {
            let model = Product()
            model.name = "Product Header \(i + 1)"
            for j in 0...5 {
                let sub_model = Product()
                sub_model.name = "Product Header \(j + 1)"

Good job, Now we will write the all required function of tableView.

TableView Delegates Methods : UICollectionView with UITableView in swift

    // MARK: - Table view data source
    override func numberOfSections(in tableView: UITableView) -> Int {
        return list.count
    override func tableView(_ tableView: UITableView, viewForHeaderInSection section: Int) -> UIView? {
        let cell = tableView.dequeueReusableCell(withIdentifier: "header")
        cell?.textLabel?.text = list[section].name
        cell?.textLabel?.textColor = .white
        cell?.textLabel?.font = UIFont(name: "Verdana", size: 25)
        return cell!

    override func tableView(_ tableView: UITableView, numberOfRowsInSection section: Int) -> Int {
        return 1

    override func tableView(_ tableView: UITableView, cellForRowAt indexPath: IndexPath) -> UITableViewCell {
        let cell = tableView.dequeueReusableCell(withIdentifier: "cell", for: indexPath) as! TableViewCell
        cell.configure(items: list[indexPath.section].sub_product)
        return cell
    override func tableView(_ tableView: UITableView, heightForHeaderInSection section: Int) -> CGFloat {
    override func tableView(_ tableView: UITableView, heightForRowAt indexPath: IndexPath) -> CGFloat {

Great job…. Now finally below is the code of the UITableViewCell

UITableViewCell in swift

import UIKit

class TableViewCell: UITableViewCell {

    override func awakeFromNib() {
        // Initialization code

    override func setSelected(_ selected: Bool, animated: Bool) {
        super.setSelected(selected, animated: animated)

        // Configure the view for the selected state
    @IBOutlet weak var collectionView: UICollectionView!
    var list : [Product] = [Product]()
    func configure(items : [Product]) {
        list = items
        collectionView.delegate = self
        collectionView.dataSource  = self
    func setLayout() {
        let flowLayout = UICollectionViewFlowLayout()
        flowLayout.scrollDirection = .horizontal
        flowLayout.itemSize = CGSize(width: self.collectionView.frame.width / 2 - 10, height: self.collectionView.frame.width / 2 - 10)
        flowLayout.minimumLineSpacing = 5
        flowLayout.minimumInteritemSpacing = 5
        self.collectionView.setCollectionViewLayout(flowLayout, animated: true)

extension TableViewCell : UICollectionViewDelegate, UICollectionViewDataSource {
    func collectionView(_ collectionView: UICollectionView, numberOfItemsInSection section: Int) -> Int {
       return list.count
    func collectionView(_ collectionView: UICollectionView, cellForItemAt indexPath: IndexPath) -> UICollectionViewCell {
        let cell = collectionView.dequeueReusableCell(withReuseIdentifier: "cell", for: indexPath)
        cell.contentView.backgroundColor = .systemGray6
        return cell
