I'm having trouble trying to achieve some very basic layout behavior with Auto Layout. My view controller looks like this in IB:
The top label is the title label, I don't know how many lines it will be. I need the title label to display all lines of text. I also need the other two labels and the small image to be laid out right below the title, however tall it happens to be. I have set vertical spacing constraints between the labels and small image, as well as a top spacing constraint between the title label and its superview and a bottom spacing constraint between the small image and its superview. The white UIView has no height constraint, so it should stretch vertically to contain its subviews. I have set the number of lines for the title label to 0.
How can I get the title label to resize to fit the number of lines required by the string? My understanding is that I can't use setFrame methods because I'm using Auto Layout. And I have to use Auto Layout because I need those other views to stay below the title label (hence the constraints).
How can I make this happen?
-setPreferredMaxLayoutWidth on the
UILabel and autolayout should handle the rest.
See the UILabel documentation.
Only need to set the height constraint in storyboard to Greater than or equal to", no need to setPreferredMaxLayoutWidth.
