UI objects can be customized in Xcode 8 using the attributes inspector. This video shows how to customize the background color of your app, and how to style buttons and labels.
- [Narrator] Throughout this course,…we've used buttons and labels quite a bit.…But we actually haven't gone into much detail…about how to customize them.…And for our calculator app,…we're going to need to do that.…So I'm going to head over to main.storyboard…and for now I'm going to hide the document outline,…that's this button right here so hide it.…And I'll scroll up a little bit.…And we're going to begin…to actually lay out our user interface.…Let's start with the background.…
Now, I want to have a black background…and that's for the reason…that I want the calculator app…to loosely match the current Apple supplied calculator app…in the app store.…So the way that we can change the background color…is by selecting the background view object.…Now, if you want to know what object is actually selected,…you can actually go inside the document outline…and you can see that we have the view selected right here.…You can also select objects…from that document outline if you want.…
The view is sort of the root visible object…
