Example using UIStoryBoard Interface Builder:

Drag and drop a UIView object from the object library.

In the identity inspector change the class from UIView to NewsTickerLabel.

Customize the parameters in the attributes inspector.

Connect the NewsTickerLabel object to your controller by creating an outlet.

class ViewController: UIViewController {
    @IBOutlet weak var newsTickerLabel: NewsTickerLabel!

    override func viewDidLoad() {


In the viewDidAppear() call the activate() method of your NewsTickerLabel object.

override func viewDidAppear(_ animated: Bool) {
