Swift Question

Is there a way to programmatically let a UILabel determine its intrinsic content size

I have created a label via and a container view via:

let label = UILabel(frame: CGRectMake(0,0, 50, 50))
label.text = "omnomnom"
let labelView = UIView(frame: CGRectMake(50, 50, 100, 100))
labelView.backgroundColor = UIColor.orangeColor()
label.textAlignment = .Center

But the label text might change so as a result for a longer word the whole thing won't be shown. I was wondering whether there is way to determine the intrinsic content size after the label is added, so that I can use those values to create a container view that is just a little bit bigger than that of the label.

You can use sizeToFit to accomplish that. So you only need to add label.sizeToFit() to the end of your label configuration.
