Swift Package Manager
Install with Swift Package Manager by adding the following to your
dependencies: [ .package(url: "https://github.com/hoangtaiki/PlaceholderUITextView", from: "1.0.0"), ],
Or manually checkout the submodule with
git submodule add [email protected]:hoangtaiki/Refreshable.git, drag Refreshable.xcodeproj to your project, and add Refreshable as a build dependency.
You can set the value of the
placeholder property just like using UITextField.
- Drag a UITextView object onto the canvas.
- In the Identity inspector, set the Custom Class name to
- In the Attributes inspector, you can change the value of the
let placeholderTextView = PlaceholderUITextView(frame: view.bounds) placeholderTextView.placeholder = "What's on your mind?" view.addSubview(placeholderTextView)
To run the example project, clone the repo, and run
pod install from the Example directory first.
If you run Example project you can see UITextView have some gap from four edges (top, right, bottom, left).
This gap is not a feature of PlaceholderUITextView. It is the default features of UITextView.
Defaut UITextView has
textContainerInset = UIEdgeInsets(top: 8, left: 0, bottom: 8, right: 0) and
lineFragmentPadding = 5. So that if you run Example Project you can see that: UITextField always be moved a bit by these two default values.
To avoid this happening you have two ways:
textContainerInset by .zeroand
lineFragmentPadding by 0
- Change constraint between UITextView and superview.
