Changing the text of an existing UILabel can be done by accessing and modifying the text property of the UILabel. This can be done directly using String literals or indirectly using variables. Setting the text with String literals Swift label.text = "the new text" Objective-C // Do...
You can use the label's textColor property to apply a text color to the entire text of the label. Swift label.textColor = UIColor.redColor() label.textColor = UIColor(red: 64.0/255.0, green: 88.0/255.0, blue: 41.0/225.0, alpha: 1) Swift 3 label.textColor = UIColor.red label.textColor = UICol...
Swift label.textAlignment = NSTextAlignment.left //or the shorter label.textAlignment = .left Any value in the NSTextAlignment enum is valid: .left, .center, .right, .justified, .natural Objective-C label.textAlignment = NSTextAlignmentLeft; Any value in the NSTextAlignment enum is vali...
With a Frame When you know the exact dimensions you want to set for your label, you can initialize a UILabel with a CGRect frame. Swift let frame = CGRect(x: 0, y: 0, width: 200, height: 21) let label = UILabel(frame: frame) view.addSubview(label) Objective-C CGRect frame = CGRectMake(0, 0,...
Swift let label = UILabel() Objective-C UILabel *label = [[UILabel alloc] init]; or UILabel *label = [UILabel new]; // convenience method for calling alloc-init Change the default font's size Swift label.font = UIFont.systemFontOfSize(17) Swift 3 label.font = UIFont.systemFont(ofSi...
When you make a label and set its text to be more than a single line that it can display, it will be truncated and you will see only one line of text ending with three dots (...). This is because a property called numberOfLines is set to 1, and therefore only one line will be displayed. It is a comm...
Suppose you have a UILabel on your storyboard and you have created an IBOutlet for it in ViewController.swift / ViewController.m and named it labelOne. To make the changes easily visible, change the backgroundColor and textColor of labelOne in the viewDidLoad method: The function sizeToFit is use...
Swift label.backgroundColor = UIColor.redColor() label.backgroundColor = .redColor() Swift 3 label.backgroundColor = UIColor.red Objective-C label.backgroundColor = [UIColor redColor];
Swift label1.layer.shadowOffset = CGSize(width: 3, height: 3) label1.layer.shadowOpacity = 0.7 label1.layer.shadowRadius = 2 Swift 3 label1.layer.shadowOffset = CGSize(width: 3, height: 3) label1.layer.shadowOpacity = 0.7 label1.layer.shadowRadius = 2 Objective-C label1.layer.shadowOffs...
You can make an UILabel with a dynamic height using auto layout. You need to set the numberOfLines to zero (0), and add a minimal height by setting up a constraints with a relation of type .GreaterThanOrEqual on the .Height attribute iOS 6 Swift label.numberOfLines = 0 let heightConstraint = ...
Using code UILabel.lineBreakMode: NSLineBreakMode Swift label.lineBreakMode = .ByTruncatingTail .ByWordWrapping .ByCharWrapping .ByClipping .ByTruncatingHead .ByTruncatingTail .ByTruncatingMiddle Swift 3 label.lineBreakMode = .byTruncatingTail .byWordWrapping .byCharWrapping...
A common use case for wanting to calculate the frame a label will take up is for sizing table view cells appropriately. The recommended way of doing this is using the NSString method boundingRectWithSize:options:attributes:context:. options takes String drawing options: NSStringDrawingUsesLineFr...
NOTE: In most cases, it is better to use a UIButton instead of making a UILabel you can tap on. Only use this example, if you are sure, that you don't want to use a UIButton for some reason. Create label Enable user interaction Add UITapGestureRecognizer The key to create a clickable UIL...
Sometimes we have to resize a UILabel based on dynamic content where the text length is unknown. In this example, width of the UILabel is fixed at 280 points and the height is infinite, lets say 9999. Estimating the frame with respect to the text style and maximumLabelSize. Objective-C UILabel * l...

This example shows how a label's width can automatically resize when the text content changes. Pin the left and top edges Just use auto layout to add constraints to pin the left and top sides of the label. After that it will automatically resize. Notes This example comes from this Stack...
NSString provides method boundingRectWithSize which can be used to predict the resulting CGSize of a UILabel based on its text and font without the need of creating a UILabel Objective-C [[text boundingRectWithSize:maxSize options:(NSStringDrawingTruncatesLastVisibleLine | NSStringDrawingUsesLineF...
Objective-C UILabel *label = [[UILabel alloc] init]; label.highlighted = YES; label.highlightedTextColor = [UIColor redColor]; Swift let label = UILabel() label.highlighted = true label.highlightedTextColor = UIColor.redColor() Swift 3 let label = UILabel() label.isHighlighted = true ...
