Swift Question

Best way to achieve UILabel animation effect in Swift?

I am pretty new to animating in Swift and have an idea of how to go about this but would like to see how others would do it -

I am trying to create the effect where the placeholder text of a search bar shrinks and moves up above the search field and changes to different color when user goes to enter search bar. Like this:

http://magicus.xyz when you click on username.

If I place a uilabel over a search bar and scale this label on entering the searcher Im not sure entering the search bar would register because a uilabel would be over it..

I am generally trying to replicate those textfields in general. How would I go about creating this animation? Or even adding a bottom border to my search bar?

    extension EGFloatingTextField {

    }

His name is EGFloatingTextField and you can find more details here

Usage:

let emailLabel = EGFloatingTextField(frame: CGRectMake(8, 64, CGRectGetWidth(self.view.bounds) - 16, 48))
emailLabel.floatingLabel = true
emailLabel.setPlaceHolder("Email")
emailLabel.validationType = .Email
emailLabel.keyboardType = .EmailAddress
self.view.addSubview(emailLabel)

P.S. You need to import PureLayout library, here you can find the full source and instruction to how to import it.
