I need to draw a horizontal line in a UIView. What is the easiest way to do it. For example, I want to draw a black horizontal line at y-coord=200.
I am NOT using Interface Builder.
The easiest way in your case (horizontal line) is to add a subview with black background color and frame
[0, 200, 320, 1].
Code sample (I hope there are no errors - I wrote it without Xcode):
UIView *lineView = [[UIView alloc] initWithFrame:CGRectMake(0, 200, self.view.bounds.size.width, 1)]; lineView.backgroundColor = [UIColor blackColor]; [self.view addSubview:lineView]; [lineView release]; // You might also keep a reference to this view // if you are about to change its coordinates. // Just create a member and a property for this...
Another way is to create a class that will draw a line in its drawRect method (you can see my code sample for this here).
