iOS UIView UIView extension for size and frame attributes


Example

If we want to get the x-cordinate of origin of the view, then we need to write like:

view.frame.origin.x

For width, we need to write:

view.frame.size.width

But if we add a simple extension to an UIView, we can get all the attributes very simply, like:

view.x
view.y
view.width
view.height

It will also help setting these attributes like:

view.x = 10
view.y = 10
view.width = 100
view.height = 200

And the simple extension would be:

extension UIView {
    
    var x: CGFloat {
        get {
            return self.frame.origin.x
        }
        set {
            self.frame = CGRect(x: newValue, y: self.frame.origin.y, width: self.frame.size.width, height: self.frame.size.height)
        }
    }
    
    var y: CGFloat {
        get {
            return self.frame.origin.y
        }
        set {
            self.frame = CGRect(x: self.frame.origin.x, y: newValue, width: self.frame.size.width, height: self.frame.size.height)
        }
    }
    
    var width: CGFloat {
        get {
            return self.frame.size.width
        }
        set {
            self.frame = CGRect(x: self.frame.origin.x, y: self.frame.origin.y, width: newValue, height: self.frame.size.height)
        }
    }
    
    var height: CGFloat {
        get {
            return self.frame.height
        }
        set {
            self.frame = CGRect(x: self.frame.origin.x, y: self.frame.origin.y, width: self.frame.size.width, height: newValue)
        }
    }
}

We need to add this class file in a project and it'll be available to use throughout the project!
