What would you like to do?
A UILabel subclass that adds padding around the text and handles layout properly.
import UIKit
class NRLabel : UILabel {
var textInsets: UIEdgeInsets = UIEdgeInsetsZero
override func textRect(forBounds bounds: CGRect, limitedToNumberOfLines numberOfLines: Int) -> CGRect {
let insetRect = UIEdgeInsetsInsetRect(bounds, textInsets)
let textRect = super.textRect(forBounds: insetRect, limitedToNumberOfLines: numberOfLines)
let invertedInsets = UIEdgeInsets(top:,
left: -textInsets.left,
bottom: -textInsets.bottom,
right: -textInsets.right)
return UIEdgeInsetsInsetRect(textRect, invertedInsets)
override func drawText(in rect: CGRect) {
super.drawText(in: UIEdgeInsetsInsetRect(rect, textInsets))
