iOS UIPinchGestureRecognizer


Example

Pinches are a two fingered gesture where the fingers move closer or farther from each other. This gesture is generally used for resizing a view.

Swift

override func viewDidLoad() {
    super.viewDidLoad()

    // Pinch
    let pinchGesture = UIPinchGestureRecognizer(target: self, action: #selector(handlePinch(_:)))
    pinchView.addGestureRecognizer(pinchGesture)
}

// Pinch action
func handlePinch(gesture: UIPinchGestureRecognizer) {
    label.text = "Pinch recognized"

    if gesture.state == UIGestureRecognizerState.Changed {
        let transform = CGAffineTransformMakeScale(gesture.scale, gesture.scale)
        pinchView.transform = transform
    }
}
