iOS Create UIView using Autolayout


Example

UIView *view = [[UIView alloc] init];

[self.view addSubview:view];

//Use the function if you want to use height as constraint
[self addView:view onParentView:self.view withHeight:200.f];


//Use this function if you want to add view with respect to parent and should resize with it
[self addFullResizeConstraintForSubview:view addedOnParentView:self.view];
