The next in the generations of 'growing textviews' optimized for iOS 8 and above.


As a successor to HPGrowingTextView, NextGrowingTextView was redesigned from scratch to provide the most elegant architecture for iOS 8 and above.

Most autoresizing textviews are implemented with UITextView subclasses. The problem with that approach is that each iOS version changed UITextView's layout behavior, and so most of the implementations are laden with iOS version-specific workarounds to fix bugs and errant behavior. With NextGrowingTextView, the battle with the framework is now over.

NextGrowingTextView approaches the problem differently by wrapping UITextView within a UIScrollView and aligning the textView to the scrollView's contentSize.

- public NextGrowingTextView: UIScrollView
    - internal NextGrowingInternalTextView: UITextView

You want also to need to display a user-interface on top of the keyboard?
muukii/Bureau enables you to show your user-interface on top of the keyboard in the easiest way.


To run the example project, clone the repo, and run pod install from the Example directory first.


public class Delegates {
  public var willChangeHeight: (CGFloat) -> Void
  public var didChangeHeight: (CGFloat) -> Void

public var delegates: Delegates
public override init(frame: CGRect)

Use isFlashScrollIndicatorsEnabled to enable/disable flash scroll indicators while text view height is less than max height.


let growingTextView: NextGrowingTextView

growingTextView.delegates.didChangeHeight = { [weak self] height in
  guard let `self` = self else { return }
  // Do something
