Com/downloads/example#uilabel to obtain UILabelExample and all the venture records. during this code pattern, we organize a UILabel known as instance utilizing a body with a top of forty, a width of 320, and an foundation of (0,200) in our superview. We then set the label textual content to “Hello, international! ” in line three, and the textual content colour to white in line four. In strains five and six we manage a textual content drop shadow. For a one-pixel best shadow, we outline horizontal offset of zero, and a vertical offset of –1. ultimately in line 7 we heart the textual content in the bounds of the label via surroundings the textAlignment to UITextAlignmentCenter. as the label’s width is the width of the iPhone monitor, this facilities the textual content on the screen. realize in line eight that we set the historical past colour of the label. have in mind, as the UILabel is a subclass of UIView, the houses of the label are as well as the homes that exist already within the UIView. desk four. 1  UILabel houses and outlines 60 bankruptcy four uncomplicated person Interface items An instance of a UILabel Tip via default, a UILabel is opaque with a historical past colour of white. which means each pixel within the label’s rectangle has to be crammed. to place the textual content on most sensible of a history (e. g. , textual content on a clear historical past or over an image), set instance. opaque to NO; and instance. backgroundColor to [UIColor clearColor].

BMPf) UIKit seventy seven home windows Icon structure (. ico) seventy seven home windows Cursor (. cur) seventy seven XWindow Bitmap (. xbm) Tip To optimize your apps, think about using PNG records with a clear history. iOS honors the transparency in PNGs, providing you with the facility to regulate heritage shades with a picture overlay whereas desiring just one photograph asset. whilst making a UIImageView, you will have the choice of initializing the view with the traditional view initialization technique, initWithFrame. in spite of the fact that, as a result of the detailed nature of pictures, iOS promises an extra initialization process, initWithImage. if you happen to initialize a UIImageView with a picture, it immediately units the peak and width of the UIImageView to the peak and width of the UIImage. 1 UIImage *myImage = [UIImage imageNamed:@"sample. png"]; 2 UIImageView *myImageView = [[UIImageView alloc] initWithImage:myImage]; three [self. view addSubview:myImageView]; In line 1, we create a UIImage from our pattern photo, pattern. png.
