Register for Previewing

    registerForPreviewing(with: self, sourceView: tableView)

Previewing Delegate View Controller for Location

    func previewingContext(_ previewingContext: UIViewControllerPreviewing, viewControllerForLocation location: CGPoint) -> UIViewController? {        
        if let indexPath = tableView.indexPathForRow(at: location) {
            previewingContext.sourceRect = tableView.rectForRow(at: indexPath)

            let storyboard = UIStoryboard(name: "Main", bundle: nil)
            let optionsViewController = storyboard.instantiateViewController(withIdentifier: "OptionsViewController") as! OptionsViewController
            let item = collection.items[indexPath.row]

            optionsViewController.delegate = self
            optionsViewController.item = item

            presentedOptionsController = optionsViewController

            return optionsViewController

        return nil

Previewing Delegate Commit View Controller

    func previewingContext(_ previewingContext: UIViewControllerPreviewing, commit viewControllerToCommit: UIViewController) {
        self.navigationController?.pushViewController(viewControllerToCommit, animated: true)

        if let vc = viewControllerToCommit as? OptionsViewController {

Customizing Content Size on Previewed View Controller

    override func viewWillLayoutSubviews() {

        let labelHeight = label.frame.size.height
        let containerHeight = labelHeight + 40.0

        self.preferredContentSize = CGSize(width: self.view.frame.size.height, height: containerHeight)
