I've laid out some subviews with Interface Builder, but I'd like to do it in code instead.
I've read the UIView docs about setting the view.autoresizingMask property. I'm looking for a logical explanation of how to translate the struts and springs by using the various masks offered (e.g.
When setting the autoresizing mask for a view, use a bitwise inclusive OR (
|) to specify springs and struts.
Springs are represented by specifying a mask:
Struts are represented by the lack of one of the four 'flexible margin' masks (i.e. if a strut does not exist, the mask for that margin is specified):
For example, a view with a horizontal spring and top and bottom struts would have the width, and left and right margins specified as flexible:
mySubview.autoresizingMask = (UIViewAutoresizingFlexibleWidth | UIViewAutoresizingFlexibleLeftMargin | UIViewAutoresizingFlexibleRightMargin);
