- [Voiceover] I've laid out a user interface.…Now it's time to use the inspectable…and designable views I created to customize its design…and see those changes rendered right in Interface Builder.…I'll select the image view…and then in the Identity Inspector, set its Class…to the DesignableImageView class.…Next, in the Attributes inspector,…where I now have the inspectable properties…I created in the UIView extension,…I'll set the Border Width to 2,…Border Color to White Color,…and Corner Radius to 100.…
Because I marked the designable image view…with the @IBDesignable attribute,…the design view renders directly in Interface Builder…saving us a build and run…or even a trip to the Preview Assistant Editor…to visualize the changes to the design.…I'll keep going with this.…I'll select the Email address…and Password text fields,…and then in the Identity inspector,…set their Class to DesignableTextField.…Now in the Attributes inspector…I'll change the place holder text color to white color.…I see that change take effect immediately…
Here iOS app architect Scott Gardner explains how to create designable views and dynamic and adaptive user interfaces for any screen size or orientation. He shows how to work with stack views, images, custom fonts, and Interface Builder's Auto Layout tools, which speed up your design process and help adhere to Apple's interface guidelines. Along the way, he provides best practices for designing interfaces that are clean, efficient, and enjoyable for users.
